Showing that this land is not only a source of tensions and massacres, but also nurtures unforgettable love stories, “Aşiq û Maşûq – Kurdish-Armenian love stories from Armenian sources” brings three unforgettable tales which are part of oral history and handed down from generation to generation. The common ground of these tales is not only impossible loves; they also voice Anatolia, Mesopotamia and all unique Dersim and reveal the life of Armenian and Kurdish peoples.
Brother Sarkis has passed away, and it is his work and his memory that remain. For over forty years, we shared a common fate and friendship. Although we did not agree on everything, we were people of the same world. When I look back now I see that when we came together, or spoke on the telephone, we only spoke about Armenian language, literature and culture, as if it were the only topic in our lives.
We bid farewell to Sarkis Seropyan. His life of 80 years became more visible during his funeral ceremony, as tens of his friends accompanied Baron Seropyan on his final journey.
“He remained loyal to two principles throughout his life; protecting the dignity of his ancestors, and never succumbing to injustice.” His family remembers Sarkis Seropyan, who passed away on Saturday.
