Mother Derdo and the Walnut Tree

Δημιουργός: Serdar Onal | Turkey, Armenia

An Armenian woman from Bitlis, Mother Derdo, has emigrated to Istanbul following the death of her husband to build a new life to herself. Each year, she travels to her home village where she stays for a while, harvests walnuts, and returns to Istanbul. The walnut tree is like a reflection of Mother Derdo-standing tall, keeping a memory.
