             According   to   popular   opinion,   based   on   demographic   possibilities,   there   were   around   25,000 Armenians    in    Jerusalem    at    their    peak,    just    prior    to    the    1948   Arab-Israel    war,    divided    among    the communities   in   the   Convent   of   St   James,   the Armenian   Quarter,   and   the   minority   Catholic   and   Protestant enclaves who lived outside the Armenian compound.        This   aggregated   bunch   of   hardy,   idealistic   denizens,   a   large   chunk   of   them   survivors   of   a   horrid genocide,   would   give   grace   their   presence   in    the   Holy   Land   with   the   production   of   a   number   of   men   and women whose talents would catapult them onto the world stage.        The   Armenians    gave    Jerusalem    its    first    printing    press    and    photographic    studio,    and    the    world incomparable music of Ohan Dourian. And philosopher and man of letters Haig Khatchadourian.      And a Minister of Oil and Energy for the Motherland.      Among others.        The   year   1948   was   both   an   epochal   and   catastrophic   milestone   in   the   history   of   the   Armenian community   of   Jerusalem.   The   Arab-Israeli   war   wreaked   terrible   havoc   on   the   Armenian   compound, making   the   occupants   refugees   once   again,   giving   added   impetus   to   the   massive   exodus   of   Armenians, many    of    whom    chose    to    return    to    the    Motherland    while    others    sought    succor    in    the    hospitable neighboring Arab countries.        The   United   Nations   Relief   and   Works   Agency   (UNRWA)   for   Palestine   Refugees   stepped   in   to   provide timely   aid   and   support   to   the   shrunken   community,   with   kaghakatsi   leaders   in   the   vanguard   of   the volunteer corps that looked after their security and their material welfare.        To   help   with   their   efforts,   the   secretariat   of   the   Patriarchate   of   St   James   conducted   a   census   and prepared a list of all Armenian families residing in the Old City.        The   list   contains   a   total   of   over   540   families,   a   far   cry   from   the   handful   holding   the   fort   there   now. The   actual   date   of   its   compilation   is   not   available,   but   it   is   safe   to   assume   that   it   was   written   sometime in the early 1950's.        We   have   arranged   the   names   alphabetically,   beginning   with   the   surname,    for   easier   viewing.   But   we have   left   the   spelling   as   it   appeared   originally.   Presumably,   the   list   was   typewritten   by   the   secretariat's untiring dynamo, Sahag Kalaydjian.                NOTE:   The   people   listed   here   are   the   heads   of   their   respective   families,   unless   as   yet   unmarried. Unfortunately, the list does not mention either the spouses or the children.     This is the list.      Abassian, Hovhannes      Abu Zeid, Haiganoush      Aghabekian, Garabed      Aghabekian,
