    A survivor of the Armenian genocide lived in Calcutta and told us the story of her Mother. Who starved to death in the desert,. But taught her children the Armenian alphabet by writing it in the sand with her dying fingers. This Armenian survivor was married to the OC, Wireless, Calcutta Police.
    The “ late charitable Sookias” mentioned on the earliest Christian gravestone was most certainly the same Sookias who established a “charitable hospital” which was taken over by the Calcutta Corporation. “Sukeas Street” is named in his generous memory.

    On the first place I would like to thank to Rajashri Dasgupta for listening with patience and writing about Anna’s story and the Armenian Genocide, today in the diaspora are living about 7 million Armenians, 90 % of them are the children and grand children of Armenian Genocide survivers, including me, my late grandmother, Dikranouhi Hairabedian, from Adana was also a surviver, with horrible ups and downs she reached to Jerusalem, my birth place, as you can see, under the comments, a Turk Orhan Tan is saying that the Armenian Genocide is a lie, that herts me a lot, because even after a century, there are still some Turks who are not changed, not apologising, thanks God most of the Turkish intellectuals have aknoweleged the Armenian Genocide and asked for forgiveness, Orhan Tan knows very well that his ancessters butcherd de Armenians, the Greeks, the Assyrians the Jews, the Arabs etc. The perpatraters of the Armenian Genocide, in 1919 were sentenced to death by the Turkish Court, there are hondreds of official documents, the only fear of todays Turkish government is about the reparations they have to pay because of te Armenian Genocide.

    Because of the Turkish membership to the Nato, some super powers close an eye about the Armenian Genocide and they expect that, one day the Turks will be civilized enough te aknowledge the Armenian Genocide, the only thing that the Armenian people are demanding is justice.
