B. Sinan's last struggle.

1. Sinan finally learned why her father hated her even before she was born! This recording was made in the early hours of December 6, 2010. She discusses what she learned from the women of her village and how it effected her life. Sinan's voice is hoarse from the recent surgery and talking for so long on the phone. This tape is slightly edited to respect several people's privacy and to remove some noise and superfluous comments by Walter. A fairly accurate transcript can be read here if you have difficulty understanding the tape.

C. Sinan's Interviews from 1983

1. Audio Tapes (14 of 16 exist and I will post excerpts here in several weeks.)

2. Transcriptions and text for the planned book.
