|The above photo was taken by Dr.Stanley Kerr in 1919 in Marash. American mission buildings were at the northeast part of the city.|
This is the Marash where Marash Girl's father lived 'til the age of 8. Those were the mountains that he roamed, where he and his fellow playmates mirrored the struggle that was going on in the city below. Peter grew up in Kumbet, a village of Marash, but had to flee with his family in 1920 during the mass deportations and genocide of the Armenians by the Turks.
