Description

"Forced into Genocide" is the riveting memoir of Yervant Edward Alexanian: an eye-witness to the massacre and dislocation of his family and countrymen in Ottoman Turkey during World War I.

Incredibly, Alexanian experienced the Armenian Genocide as a conscript in the Turkish army. His memoir is a one-of-a-kind insider's acount documenting the Genoside's astonishing cruelty - but also its rare, unexpected acts of humanity. no comparable account exists in the literature of the Armenian Genocide. This edition, tranlated froom Aexanisn's hand-written cronicle, includes rare documents and photos that the author preserved.
