Statue of Zabel Yesayan

    Zabel Yesayan (b. Scutari, Ottoman Empire, 1878 – d. 1943, Siberia, Soviet Union) was an Armenian writer and a prominent figure in the Armenian academic and political community during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. She studied in Paris and returned to Armenia. However, she paid quite a high price for speaking out about injustice and the truth. Although she managed to avoid apprehension in 1915 and took shelter in Bulgaria and later in Tbilisi, in 1936, she became a victim of Stalin’s repressions in Soviet Armenia. She was arrested and died in exile.
