Commentaire :

The government-sanctioned extermination of over a million Armenians in Ottoman Turkey during the First World War is sometimes described as the 'forgotten genocide'. For a variety of reasons, it was ignored by governments and air-brushed out of history books. As a result, it provided the blueprint for later atrocities. It was no accident that in 1939, on the eve of the Second World War, Adolf Hitler remarked "Who now remembers the annihilation of the Armenians?"

2015 is the centenary of that Armenian Genocide. In this moving and powerful account of the suffering undergone by Turkish Armenians, Patrick Thomas draws on eye-witness material from a wide variety of sources. He shows why it remains profoundly important to acknowledge and remember this first major genocide of the twentieth century. Recent events in the Middle East have underlined the threat of violent annihilation that still faces many vulnerable minorities there. The fate of the Armenians a century ago provides a timely warning to us today, one that should never be forgotten.
