Pieces of Ergir here, Turkification of Armenian toponyms in Ergir

After the Genocide and the forced displacement of Armenians from Western Armenia, Turkey began the Turkification of Armenian toponyms. The names of all rural and urban communities were changed at the state level. While a process of changing toponyms was set in motion in Western Armenia, Armenians who had moved to Eastern Armenia began to call shops, villages, streets, and cities after the places of their homeland that they had lost.

What problem did naming streets and cities in Eastern Armenia after the lost territories of our homeland solve? Has it helped or done damage? In the meantime, Turkey managed to replace Armenian toponyms with Turkish equivalents and put the latter into circulation.
