Two images from Moscow.
“We Remember 1915” written in red under an image painted in black on the wall of an underground walkway.
The side panel of a bus stop. In the upper right corner: “100 years 1915-2015 // April 24 is the anniversary of the genocide of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire.” In the center, under “armenia futura // www.armeniafutura.com” and above the national flags: “Thank you for being with us.”
[Updated May 11.] Last Saturday, I saw that the 1915 memorial graffiti had been painted over, although one could still see its outline under the thin layer of yellow-orange paint. Municipal workers are always busy “refreshing” everything in sight in spring, especially before the May 9th holiday.
