She dedicated her life to help the the Armenian people, and most of her life she lived in Armenia and Syria. She died ind 1935 in Aleppo, Syria,

A tragic side-issue of the Armenian genocide of 1915 and 1916, was the imprisonment of women and children in Turkish and Kurd harems, a fate which overtook probably a full 200,000 women and children.

Book about Armenian Genocide missionary published in Denmark

A book aboutDanish missionary Karen Jeppe known for her work in the Ottoman empire during the Armenian Genocide has recently been published in Denmark, Bogvaegten reports.

Jeppe was described as the "Danish Mother of Armenians" by the Golden Apricot International Film Festival.

The Danish missionary heard a lecture about the Armenians at the age of 26 and decided that she wanted to be a teacher for orphaned Armenian kids.

Jeppe arrived in Urfa where she joined a school-orphanage under the direct supervision of the German clergyman Johannes Lepsius.

She has helped save many Armenians in the early 20th century, also adopting two children herself.
