Patrick Derham, Trustee of Gladstone’s Library, considers the connection between Armenia and one of Britain’s greatest prime ministers, William Ewart Gladstone.

Patrick Derham reveals the moving bond between one of Britain’s greatest statesmen and the Armenian people, and the significance of Gladstone’s legacy today.
