Marasch 1901-1905

(Jes.61.4)  Isaiah 61:4

The image of the book of photographs pictured above was posted on Facebook by Birzamanlar Marash -- apparently a book that resides in Turkey, a book published at the beginning of the 20th Century by missionaries.  The Bible quotation, Isaiah 61:4, referenced on the front cover reads,

"And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations." 

How many of us Armenians have done exactly that with our gardens, our agricultural lands, our woodlands, our tracts dedicated to the memory of our ancestors who lost their lives and their lands . . . .
