KARS Ancient Armenian city (now in eastern turkey)

Kars has been a seat of armenian culture and treasure since its foundation thousands of years ago, today, it lies in Turkey, for the last 9 decades, substancial efforts have been made to erase Armenian traces from the city, as its native armenian population was ethnically cleansed during the first genocide of the 20th century. Kurds and Turks were moved into the city to fill the vacant homes of the armenians. Today, the once prosperous Armenian city, is now one of the poorest towns in Anatolia, due to efforts to Undo what the Armenians had built. the new settlers were unable to preserve the trading network the natives had established, and the city has decayed for over 80 years, to add to this, the blockade on armenia by the Turkish government has harmed the fragile economy of what is now eastern 'turkey' by disallowing them to trade with the modern armenian state. here is a history of the armenians of Kars

  • I've been to Kars many times on several tours of Turkey. I've also managed to travel to Ani (the other abandoned Armenian city) to see the churches and villages all around, not to mention the old USSR watchtowers and seeing the glint of binocular glass as they watched what we were doing. One of the stipulations was that we were never allowed to point cameras eastward toward what was then the USSR as Ani was essentially in no-mans land.

    • @chichibu "Ancient Armenians" they might have been smart. Modern and future Armenia- not so much.

  • I used to have Armenia. Now I take iron supplements, and it's all but eradicated. Sickle cell Armenia is the worst, iron doesn't help that kind.

  • Keep dreaming Armenian. You dream as much as Greeks who claim Istanbul. Funny you never mentioned Turkish teams restoring a 1,700 year old Armenian church. The preservation and conservation of Saint Nickolaus Church in Antalya, the Virgin Marrys Last House in Kusadasi, Agia Sophia, and countless others. You couldn't afford the gun you showed on your video. Regards.

      You need to learn the definition of propaganda. This is not propaganda this is historical facts. Nobody asked you to watch my videos or comment. Shoe fly.
