|Review - Surviving the Forgotten Armenian Genocide|
Surviving the Forgotten
Surviving the Forgotten Armenian Genocide is the true-life, primary testimony of a man who survived the genocide that the Ottoman Turkish government enacted against its Armenian Christian subjects during World War One. Author Smpat Chorbadjian recounts the suffering inflicted upon him and his family; they were forced to leave their home and all possessions, and underwent a grueling death march. Smpat survived, and was able to reconstruct his life after years of grief and misery; an estimated 800,000 to 1.5 million Armenians were not so fortunate. Surviving the Forgotten Armenian Genocide is stark, sober, and dramatic reading, highly recommended for both public and college library collections.
