During our recent trip to Istanbul, we would spend our afternoons in the courtyard of the Sourp Prgitch (Holy Redeemer) Armenian Chapel in Yedikule.

Women from Armenia who had come to Istanbul to work would come to the church to pray and light candles.

We would sit on a courtyard bench and listen to their conversations as they made their way back outside. From their accents, we could tell where in Armenia they had come from – mostly Gyumri, Vanadzor and Yerevan.

One woman who had come to the church couldn’t control her tears. Let’s call her Silva.

She sat down besides us and began to tell her tale.
