At the same time sheds light on the new the life of the Armenians under the French Mandate of Syria and Lebanon. In contrast to the general opinion Armenians did not left Anatolia by the forced deportation of 1915 but in 1921 and 1922 after the French withdrawal from Anatolia. During this period about forty thousand Armenians arrived Lebanon, especially to Beirut. As a result of this mass migration a huge community of refugees formed in the camps located on the north of Beirut. Those camps were heart of suffer and hunger for them.
