“The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” William Faulkner

“The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” William Faulkner, Requiem for a Nun

Our history lives with us every day, in every way; and if nothing else, our past survives in our genetic memory.  (Click here to see previous blog on Iffar, the lathe, and Plimoth Plantation.)  Although William Faulkner refers above to the history of slavery in the United States, Marash Girl, upon reading these lines, cannot help but feel compassion for the Armenians who daily hear denial by the descendants of the perpetrators of the Armenian Genocide.
