“Armenian Genocide by Ottoman Turkey, 1915: Testimonies of Survivors”

Compiled by the Armenian National Archives (Yerevan)

There are three archival funds documenting the memories of the survivors of the Armenian Genocide: those of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, currently preserved at the Patriarchate of Jerusalem; those collected by Aram Andonian (Nubar Library, Paris); and those in the Armenian National Archives in Yerevan. Thanks to Mr. Melikyan, a three-volume collection of all the documents in the Armenian National Archives was published last year. The book he will present at this lecture is a translation into English of the most important documents of this three-volume collection.
