From a dream: I am going through the old trunk which is full of my grandmother’s things. There is a book that grandma bought from a door to door salesman in 1949. The book is full of fold out maps. They are incredibly detailed maps of Malatya and Turkey. They show the topography, including the towns with streets and houses. Each house is marked with who lived there. The place where each person died along the deportation route is also marked. This documentation is extremely important.
