Harry Khachadourian was born in Palestine and his parents were from Turkey. Harry grew up as an Armenian Christian in a war-torn time and place. He spent many years moving from one “safe” place to another.

The story is told of Alfred Nobel that he was reading the newspaper one day and received quite a shock.  Nobel was a Swedish chemist who made millions of dollars from inventing and selling dynamite.  The headline in the 1888 Newspaper read: “The Merchant of Death is Dead;” it was his obituary!  The newspaper, which had confused him with his brother Ludvig who had died in France, described a person who had gotten rich by helping people kill each other.
