lightontheshore , I read your father's story several times and he is right that the victims of the Soviet times are forgotten , but the the blame for that falls fully on the present government and the historians of Armenia , our experiences in Armenia when ever we visit friends and relatives , we find that they still live in fear and do not express thier feelings freely , that has to stop . many of my relatives were imprisoned and shot , takn to the Northen Russia and never heard from them again , many of my fathers family members went back to Armenia in 1946 never to be heard from them again . my grandmother makes sure that we learn as much as possible about the Genocide and the Soviet brutality , her memory is failing now , we will miss her knowledge, thank you for your story

Hi Lightontheshore!

Believe me I fully understand the writer's fears and rebellion! Dictators have no political colour! I've lived myself during too many years under a dictatorship so I know what I'm talking about.

Dictators know very well how to create diversion manoeuvres for appearing to be at people's service! They are tumors that should be removed as soon as possible. Even those who were democratically elected!

Thanks for calling our attention with your grandmother's story!

The more I think about politics the deeper I realize that politics and humanism never go hand in hand. Sad but true...
