Peter Balakian (au). A riveting narrative of the massacres of the Armenians in the 1890s & genocide in 1915 at the hands of the Ottoman Turks. The chilling history of how the Turk gov’t. implemented the first modern genocide behind the cover of WW1. In the U.S., many people came together to try to save the Armenians. Courageous missionaries, diplomats, & relief workers recorded their eyewitness accounts & often risked their lives in the killing fields of Armenia. But in the turmoil following WW1, the genocide was a crime that went unpunished. In depicting the 1919 Ottoman court-martial trials, Balakian reveals the perpetrators of the Armenian Genocide confessing their guilt -- an astonishing fact given the Turkish gov’ts. continued denial of the Genocide.
