Book Description

1 Dec 2013

In 1915, the Armenians were exiled from their land, and in the process of deportation 1.5 million of them were killed. The 1915-1916 annihilation of the Armenians was the archetype of modern genocide, in which a state adopts a specific scheme geared to the destruction of an identifiable group of its own citizens. Official German diplomatic documents are of great importance in understanding the genocide, as only Germany had the right to report day-by-day in secret code about the ongoing genocide. The motives, methods, and after-effects of the Armenian Genocide echoed strongly in subsequent cases of state-sponsored genocide. Studying the factors that went into the Armenian Genocide not only gives us an understanding of historical genocide, but also provides us with crucial information for the anticipation and possible prevention of future genocides.

Wolfgang Gust is an independent scholar based in Germany. For many years he was Foreign News Editor and Correspondent with the highly respected German news magazine Der Spiegel. He is the author of two previous books about the Armenian Genocide and the Ottoman Empire, as well as several articles related to the subject.

Product Description

Review

"The documents collected here illustrate clearly the shared responsibility of the Kaiserreich, the most important ally of the Ottoman Empire during the First World War. The documents were not intended for public use. They are therefore largely undisguised and so vivid that the reader often shudders when reading them." Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung "Wolfgang Gust documents in this excellent political-historical edition from contemporary German sources and the Foreign Office of the Reich government the murderous events themselves - as well as the political co-responsibility of the German state." Forum Wissenschaft "With the publication of the German diplomatic records on the Armenian Genocide a dark chapter of German history during the First World War, suppressed for a long time, has been revealed to a broad public - But this volume also represents an important contribution to genocide research in general." Orient. Journal for Politics and Economics

4.0 out of 5 stars Broken into an overview, translated document, and references ... 6 Sep 2014
By Janelle Gilbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Broken into an overview, translated document, and references, this book contains the facts I was looking for. A very dry read. A few historical pictures would have added some humanity to the writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars you can read this online if you cant spare 80 bucks 3 Jun 2014
By Dwight - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I am very surprised that a German reporter is sharing this because it shows that being okay with this wasnt a Nahtzee thing- it was a German thing. Is he going to write one about Namibia too?

I hope this isnt a Weeping Angel maneuver like Japan this week finally banning kiddie porn but NOT when depicted in anime so they can avoid being connected to the regular arrests of middle aged Japanese "businessmen" at the Manila airport caught with their artistic endeavors in their luggage. You know, wanting to look like a beautiful weeping angel when you are being observed but when the rest of us "blink," you look the opposite: Doctor Who Masterpiece Collection Weeping Angel Premium Bust.

I became interested in the genocide finally because of the Morgenthau documentary which mentions that Ambassador Henry Morgenthau found that the nature of the genocide specifically its organization and effectiveness was Germanic despite the Ottoman Empire being okay with it and murderous but too slopppy.

If not for Cher and the Kardashians, we, Americans, really wouldnt be able to put a face to the victims.

I do remember reading about Americans donating to the "poor Armenians" in Betsy's Wedding: A Betsy-Tacy High School Story which is an excellent medium for introducing World War 1 to young girls.
