Yousuf Karsh 'He grew up during the Armenian Genocide where he wrote "I saw relatives massacred; my sister died of starvation as we were driven from village to village." At the age of 16, his parents sent Yousuf to live with his uncle George Nakash, a photographer in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. Karsh briefly attended school there and assisted in his uncle’s studio.' Coming from the terrors happening in Armenia, Canada must have seemed like heaven on earth.
