America and the Armenian Genocide of 1915

Jay Winter, "America and the Armenian Genocide of 1915"
2003 | pages: 333 | ISBN: 0521829585 | PDF | 36,6 mb

Long before Rwanda and Bosnia and the Holocaust, the first genocide of the twentieth century occurred in Turkish Armenia in 1915. The essays in this collection examine how Americans learned of this catastrophe and tried to help its victims. Knowledge and compassion, however, were not enough to stop the killings, and a terrible precedent was born in 1915. The Armenian genocide has haunted the U.S. and other Western countries throughout the twentieth century.
