From our readers

The story by Vahan Ishkhanyan about Laura Atanesyan's anguish over losing her sons in the Spitak earthquake was heart-wrenching. As a parent, I could identify with her sense of loss and emptiness. I have never experienced such tragedy, so I don't know how I would cope. I hope, however, Mrs. Atanesyan, finds more solace and enjoyment in her remaining son.

Mr. Peter Eichstaedt and Mr. David Dowell seem to have missed the point regarding the Armenian Genocide, its effect on the Armenian psyche and the efforts to have it recognized by Turkey.

I disagree with both authors that the recognition of the Armenian Genocide will bring nothing to Armenia and the people of Armenia. Recognition by Turkey of the Armenian Genocide implies recognition of its responsibility in that crime against humanity, which has no statute of limitation and for which it is obliged to make compensation and reparations to Armenia and the Armenian people.

I am sure if Mr. Dowell visits Tsitsernakabert on April 24, he will see there a lot of the recipients of his aid among the ranks of the hundreds of thousands of those who pay tribute annually to the victims of the Genocide.
