Kiledar building 6: the square space defined by the edge of the ground on the far side and on the left and by the grasses on the right and near side, was the foundations for a home, before it was destroyed by the Turkish army; the small square near the right corner of the near side was presumably the point of entrance.

In a few years, the soil washed or blown onto here will be seeded by grasses; in a few more, it will probably be unidentifiable; ecological succession will finish the job of the Turkish army and erase any surface trace of this family's former life and their persecution - and of the very crime itself.
