I had no lessons in this throughout K12 and college.

Would like recommendations for books to understand what happened and how.

If you have JSTOR access through work/library/alumni, this article will get you the “why/how”


https://www.jstor.org/stable/3600788

He has a full-length, more academic work incorporating that essay called “The Great Game of Genocide.” (Bloxham)

Another more popular book on the subject is “Burning Tigris” (have not read but is more available popular vs academic).

Amb. Henry Morgenthau (our ambassador) wrote a contemporary memoir about it and the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire.  Valuable book, too.  He worked to stop it, NYT covered it heavily as did other major international papers at the time.

I took a comprehensive class on genocide in college; a real downer I assure you.

Ask a Turk.


One of my close friends is a turk and they call it the Armenian uprising.

All I know about the Armenian genocide
is that they envy the Jews
because their genocide was bigger.

You can get plenty of info from wikipedia, believe it or not...

The reports about Armenians having to buy extra guns, so that there would be something to confiscate, otherwise you'd be beaten, was eye-opening. Talk about a nightmare.

Even though most of my relatives were wiped out, it has nothing to do with me
because it's in the dead past and I'm here and now.
I had absolutely no control over, nor personal responsibility for, whatever happened before I was born.

That's why I can joke about it.

Dig into and you will see some brutal genocide. Slavery , rape , and wiping out whole villages and leaving them where they fell. There are number of stories of people travelling to some of those villages and still seeing skeletons laying where they fell years and years before.
