Format: Paperback
I am still reading this book, but find it scholarly (copiously referenced),readable, and highly illuminating. One of the problems of reading about mass atrocities is the upleasant 'pornography of evil'. Important as it is that such acts should be documented I find this book helpful because it provides important insight. The author, imprisoned for his historical beliefs in Turkey, understands the need to understand our past to avoid repeating it. In particular generations of Muslim Turks who have been misled about history need sources like this to understand that fact, since the peaceful future of Turkey depends on facing facts. But general readers interested in the role of Turkey and Islam in history and in the modern world will find what I believe to be an excellent guide to an important aspect of these.
7 September 2007: to be revised.

This book is a must read for anyone with an interest in ethnic conflict and the events leading to genocide. The words 'never again' have been spoken after many genocides; time has proven that again and again we fail to learn lessons from history. Refusing to acknowledge a genocide even happened further paves the way for more crimes against humanity. This book explains in a scholarly but readable manner the unique set of circumstances that paved the way to a genocide of one and a half million people, and perhaps gives some insight into why modern day Turkey still refuses to acknowledge the event. A dense book, but very well researched and a story skilfully told. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
The world is very different from 1915. What is now Turkey was a polyglot multiethnic multifaith mix, under threat from the rise of Turkish nationalism. The cover of war allowed for the systematic deportation, harassment by irregular forces and execution of up to one and a half Armenians. The state archives have stayed closed to researchers since the foundation of the Turkish Republic in 1923 and any one, who has spoken up for these lost people, charged by the state. The state has continued in being complicit in the destruction of Armenian buildings, especially churches, and the occupation of Armenian villages by incomers. Their history in Eastern Turkey is at least three thousand years long but their traces have been systematically erased or denied. Hitler asked the rhetorical question "Who remembers the fate of the Armenians?" Can we afford to forget them?

I am an Armenian and very proud and feel lucky for being Armenian, my grandparents survived from the genocide and arrived to Syria where my parents born, and me, the Armenian genocide was in 1915, and still no one been punished for that, so others they did the same and still doing all over the world, Hitler said ( Turkey have killed so many Armenians, who cared about that?) so he made the Holocost.
