Waiting … : The “motherland=?UTF-8?B?4oCdIA==?=experience turns sour for some Syrian refugees

A middle-aged woman opening the door to apartment N19 invites guests to come in and sit on the only chair, or the bed. A young man sitting in front of a computer doesn’t seem to notice the visitors, and keeps his gaze glued to the screen.

“I am sorry I can’t offer a different place for you to sit, this is all we have…” says 65-year-old Anzhel Tatoyan, who has fled from Syria to Armenia with her son. “It’s been seven days since we moved to this place, before we had been renting an apartment. The beds lack mattresses; even the warm blankets and pillows are gifts from our neighbors. We were sleeping on bare iron wires.”
