Twenty-five kilometers northwest of Gyumri, just over the Akhurian River on the Turkish-Armenian border, lies Amasia. Departing from Gyumri, we drove for about 30 minutes along a half paved, half unpaved road, gazing at the imposing snow-covered mountains and shielding our eyes from the glinting sun. With us we bore a gift for Amasia’s library – a copy of Margaret Ajemian Ahnet’s book The Knock at the Door: A Journey Through the Darkness of the Armenian Genocide.
