Hitler’s infamous invocation

Hitler was speaking to his generals on the eve of the invasion of Poland in 1939:

“I have issued the command — and I’ll have anybody who utters but one word of criticism executed by a firing squad — that our war aim does not consist in reaching certain lines, but in the physical destruction of the enemy. Accordingly, I have placed my death-head formation in readiness — for the present only in the East — with orders to them to send to death mercilessly and without compassion, men, women and children of Polish derivation and language.

Only thus shall we gain the living space [Lebensraum] which we need. Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?”

Round Dance of Unity 

"Round Dance of Unity" marking the Birthday of the First Republic, May 28. A live chain of 170 thousand people stretching along the perimeter of the Mount Arakatz, tallest mountain in Armenia, wearing apricot colored caps, danced for 15 minutes.   


Bequest - a poem by Avedik Isahagian

In Armenian and translation in English. A father's legacy to his son, "march forward in life with no regrets, whatever happens, let it happen." - well worth reading it.



One of the most spectacular regions in Armenia, its stunning landscape shaped by millions of years of volcanic eruptions and the once steaming waters of the lake.
