In 1905 he married Elisabeth Bender, daughter of a German missionary and grand-daughter of an Ethiopian princess. The couple witnessed the Armenian Genocide. They attended to the sick and the wounded non-Muslims and Muslims alike. He documented accounts of massacres, sheltered the widows and orphans of the genocide. Conversant in Turkish, Arabic, Kurdish, and Armenian, he bridged many communities with his dedicated service, outgoing character, and integrity. Künzler also witnessed, helplessly, the heroic Armanian resistance of Urfa in the fall of 1915. In late 1922, he transported 8,000 Armenian orphans to Syria and Lebanon, and from 1923 to late 1940s he served as the director of the Near East Relief orphanage in Ghazir and engaged in several projects, i.e., building infirmaries, houses for the blind and refugees, school for the deaf and mute, medical and educational program, soup kitchen, etc. He is the author of 5 books and over 150 articles. Jakob Künzler died in Ghazir, Lebanon on January 15, 1949.
