In the city of Zeitun in Western Armenia and the province of the same name, in total, in 1780-1909, the Zeitunians took up firearms 41 times to protect their lives and rights. In Zeitun, Armenians engaged in handicrafts, trade, agriculture and gardening. The Zeitunians were also deported and massacred. But this is not the end. The people of Zeitun who escaped the genocide in the 1930s once again showed the will to live in their Homeland. They founded the Nor Zeitun quarter in the northern part of the capital of the Republic of Armenia  in Yerevan.
