Summary

On 7 December 1988, the Armenian town of Gyumri was shaken by a destructive earthquake. Many parents responded to the pain of losing their children by giving their newborn children the names of their dead siblings. To this day, most of these children have problems with this legacy. They believe that the ghost of their brother or sister lives with them or even in them.
