“The Dance” by Siamanto In the town of Bardez where Armenians were still dying, a German woman, trying not to cry told me the horror she witnessed: “ “This thing I'm telling you about, 5 I saw with my own eyes. Behind my window of hell I clenched my teeth and watched with my pitiless eyes: the town of Bardez turned 10 into a heap of ashes. Corpses piled high as trees. From the waters, from the springs, from the streams and the road, the stubborn murmur of your blood, 15 still revenges in my ear. Don't be afraid. I must tell you what I saw, so people will understand the crimes men do to men. For two days, by the road to the graveyard... Let the hearts of the world understand. 20 It was Sunday morning, the first useless Sunday dawning on the corpses. From dawn to dusk in my room, with a stabbed woman, my tears wetting her death. Suddenly I heard from afar 25 a dark crowd standing in a vineyard lashing twenty brides and singing dirty songs. Leaving the half-dead girl on the straw mattress, I went to the balcony of my window 30 and the crowd seemed to thicken like a clump of trees.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
