The BBC has just posted a really nice story about Stephen Hawking’s most influential teacher — an Armenian man who escaped genocide with his parents, and went on to affect the world greatly by encouraging Stephen.

Dikran Tahta died in 2006, but Stephen has recorded a video commending his teacher, which you can see in the BBC story.
