Details…

One wood at a time!

Mother & Daughter two generations…

Read their eyes do you hear anything?

Few Generations…

One side of the room the mother was crushing garlic…

The other side of the room her One Eyed son was building the Titanic?

Such handcraft with one eye!

This was her window from outside!

This proud Lady from Kharpert (Harpoot) her grandfater’s brother was the famous Father A. Missakian who was to be hung from the gallows and something happened and the last minute the Turks didn’t hang him as she says… We were from upper Meziree

This Sanjak Camp will be flattened out by the end of the year… making way for some new roads, buildings and a public park. Since my first visit in Jan 2006… it has started to be flattened out, and the camp is being evacuated…

This one has been evacuated…

Last Sanjak Camp Generation?

This Poster! So Ironic on one of the Sanjak Camp walls!!

It reads: Commemoration of Armenian Genocide 91 Years Struggle until Victory Popular March “We do not beg for Justice we fight for it”
