ARAM PACHYAN'S ESSAY WAR. DEAD OR ALIVE PUBLISHED IN THE ARMENIAN MIRROR SPECTATOR
War. Dead or Alive by Aram Pachyan is published at The Armenian Mirror-Spectator.
“Nobody comes back from war. The soldiers who fall on the front lines don’t come back. The peaceful civilians—mother and son—murdered, brutalized in their own home in the town of Hadrut, will not go anywhere, they will stay home, disembodied. Those who relive the war and come home neither actually relive nor come back. There is no coming back from war. My father passed away in 2017, in the very same hospital where he had worked for about forty years. In the ICU, with his last breath, he begged me to take him home.”
Translated by Margarit Ordukhanyan.
