Egyptian composer Samir Aiad has dedicated a song to the Armenian Genocide centennial.
Samir Aiad is the author of both the music and lyrics.
The composer left the following note on his Facebook page: “Many are aware of the tragedy that befell this great nation – the Armenians. I have heard these stories from my teacher of violin, who worked in my school. She was Armenian, one of those Armenians, who reached Egypt with her mother through the Syrian deserts. Peace to the souls of all victims and shame on the people that perpetrated this crime.”
