Jerusalem, Israel

By tradition, the old walled city of Jerusalem is divided into four quarters. This is the Armenian Quarter.  It is anchored by St. James Cathedral.  With the Republic of Armenia's independence in 1991, this map of the 'Armenian Genocide' appeared on all of the quarter's streets.  Most of historic Armenia is now part of Turkey.  Note the two alphabets on display here.  [1997]
