Paris Street Renamed in Honor of Zabel Yesayan

On March 8, International Woman’s Day, a small walkway in Paris was renamed in honor of the Armenian novelist, translator and social activist Zabel Yesayan (1878-1943).

It was last year, during a visit to France by Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan, that Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo promised to rename a street in honor of Yesayan.

Allée Zabel Essayan is located at the intersection of Rue Tlemcen and Rue Spinoza, off of Avenue de la République in the 11th arrondissement.
