Baker & Taylor Interviews with one hundred survivors of the Armenian genocide of 1915 to 1923 reveal the mass deportations, torture, and brutality that destroyed communities and killed more than one million Armenians
University of California Press
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.
