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 grandfaters brother was the famous Father A. Missakian who was to be hung from the gallows and something happened and the last minute the Turks didnt 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?
