Hrant Dink’s “remembrance corner” to open in Istanbul today (photo)


“Hope lives when people remember”-this is the motto of the Hrant Dink Foundation, which has turned the former editorial office of Agos Armenian Weekly established by Istanbul-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink, murdered in 2007, into a “remembrance corner”.

As reported Agos, Hrant Dink’s “remembrance corner” will open on May 18 (International Museum Day).

Let us mention that Dink was murdered in front of this editorial office on January 19, 2007.

Located at Osmanbey Avenue in the Armenian-populated Shishli district of Istanbul, the premises of the old editorial office of Agos Weekly served as the weekly’s editorial office from 1999 to 2015.

Hrant Dink was killed from a gunshot fired by 16-year-old Turk ultranationalist Ogyun Samast. The trial over Hrant Dink’s murder has been postponed for a decade now, leaving the case unsolved, writes
