The mother of my mother was born in Constantinople in 1906 but had to leave for France in the 20's, like all my grand-parents, the 4 of them Armenians from Turkey. As a refugee, she was not allowed to return in her beloved city. I am.


La mère de ma mère est née à Constantinople en 1906 et a dû la quitter pour la France, dans les années 20, comme tous mes grands-parents, Arméniens de Turquie. En tant que réfugiée, elle n'était pas autorisée à retourner dans sa ville chérie. Moi oui.
