The Story of a Village
The village of Shirakamut, situated on the road between Spitak and Gyumri, was the closest settlement to the earthquake’s epicenter. Shirakamut, like Spitak, was completely destroyed. All that remains from before the earthquake are crumbling stone walls from the village’s old church. During our visit, the mayor graciously gave us a tour, narrating the history of the town and its inhabitants.
