In Vakıflı, the last Armenian village in Turkey, there has been a special museum since early summer. It is carefully attempted to establish a culture of remembrance. At the same time, the people try to maintain their Armenian traditions and document them in the museum.
Vakıflı is located in southern Turkey, on Musa Dağh (Moses Mountain) on the Syrian border. This region is described in Franz Werfel’s novel “The 40 days of Musa Dağh”. Descendants of the Armenians who Werfel’s novel is about live in the village.
