Commentaire :

Between 1915 and 1923, over one million Armenians died, victims of a genocidal campaign that is still denied by the Turkish government. Thousands of other Armenians suffered torture, brutality, deportation. Yet their story has received scant attention. Through interviews with a hundred elderly Armenians, Donald and Lorna Miller give the forgotten genocide the hearing it deserves. Survivors raise important issues about genocide and about how people cope with traumatic experience. Much here is wrenchingly painful, yet it also speaks to the strength of the human spirit.

The first comprehensive study of the Armenian Genocide based on survivor testimony, this book goes beyond the Armenian case to raise important issues about genocide in the twentieth century and about the ways that people cope with traumatic experience. While much in this book is wrenchingly painful, it also speaks to the strength of the human spirit. The men and women whose stories appear in this book describe the breakup of villages, long forced marches--ostensibly to refugee camps, but more often ending in massacre or starvation--the devastating experience of seeing family members die, the occasional kindness of sympathetic Turks along the deportation routes, and post-war life in orphanages in Syria and other parts of the Middle East. Using these survivor's experiences as well as historical documents of the period, the Millers reconstruct the events of 1915, enriching their narrative with insights drawn from psychological theory, ethics, and religious studies.
