dc.description Thousands of Armenians came and settled down in Egypt as new home and Egypt truly became their second or rather their substitute home. Since then Armenian community played a critical role in building that cosmopolitan nation we are speaking about its glory now. In 19th century, the Egyptian Armenian community began to participate effectively in building the Modern Egypt we know now. After 1952 and the nationalization policies adopted by Gamal Abdel Nasser’s administration, many Egyptian Armenians left Egypt. The diminishing numbers of Egyptian Armenians certainly led to decreased potential and less integration in the Egyptian society. Although their number has declined, they again, are taking its stands in building Egypt. They do not consider themselves as foreigner but Egyptians with an Armenian origin. Armenians shaped Egypt’s history- politically, culturally, and socially.
