dbo:abstract
  • Maria Jacobsen, né le 6 novembre 1882 à Siim au Danemark et morte le 6 avril 1960 à Byblos, est une missionnaire danoise. Elle est connue pour avoir été une témoin-clé du génocide arménien. Elle est l'auteure de Journaux d'une missionnaire danoise : Harpoot, 1907-1919, ouvrage considéré comme déterminant par l'historien Ara Sarafian. Elle est parvenue à sauver des centaines d'Arméniens (notamment des enfants orphelins) des massacres et des déportations. Elle est pour cela surnommée Mayrik en Arménie (diminutif affectueux pour maman). Une large place lui est accordée au musée du génocide de Tsitsernakaberd où une plaque lui rend également hommage. Laura Linney lui prête sa voix dans le documentaire Armenian Genocide. (fr)

  • Maria Jacobsen was busy administrating and could not be a ‘mayrik.’ She was the captain. Maria Jacobsen was elegant, but not fashionable, never went out without a hat. She was a nice lady. A good lady with a strong and honourable personality. We respected her. At times she was nervous, or perhaps it’s called energetic, but we respected her. We did not see her everyday; she sat among us for the Sunday dinner, making sure we all got a fair helping of boiled potatoes and pork belly.
