Rita Soulahian Kuyumjian, a psychiatrist from Montreal, Canada set out on a journey to unearth the roots of the psychological trauma inflicted on Komitas, a witness and victim of the Armenian Genocide. She published her groundbreaking book, “Archeology of Madness, Komitas: Portrait of an Armenian Icon” in 2001. Today, that book has been translated into Armenian and was recently launched at the Genocide Memorial Museum-Institute in Yerevan.
