9781784532116: Fragments of a Lost Homeland: Remembering Armenia

The Armenian world was shattered by the 1915 genocide. Not only were thousands of lives lost but families were displaced and the narrative threads that connected them to their own past and homelands were forever severed. Many have been left with only fragments of their family histories: a story of survival passed on by a grandparent who made it through the cataclysm or, if lucky, an old photograph of a distant, silent, ancestor. By contrast the Dildilian family chose to speak. Two generations gave voice to their experience in lengthy written memoirs, in diaries and letters, and most unusually in photographs and drawings. Their descendant Armen T. Marsoobian uses all these resources to tell their story and, in doing so, brings to life the pivotal and often violent moments in Armenian and Ottoman history from the massacres of the late nineteenth century to the final expulsions in the 1920s during the Turkish War of Independence. Unlike most Armenians, the Dildilians were allowed to convert to Islam and stayed behind while their friends, colleagues and other family members perished in the death marches of 1915-1916. Their remarkable story is one of survival against the overwhelming odds and survival in the face of peril.

About the Author :

Armen T. Marsoobian is Professor of Philosophy at Southern Connecticut State University. He is a descendent of the Dildilian family.

Review :

‘An emotional and tangible re-creation that even the best historian could not arrive at’ (Donald Rayfield Literary Review 2015-04-01)

‘Based on family letters, memoirs and oral history, Marsoobian’s book is exquisitely printed and contains many wonderful photographs from among his collection of 800 images’ (The Oldie Review of Books, August 2015 2015-08-01)

‘Marsoobian describes powerfully the struggle to survive and its impact on the human psyche’ (Elif Shafak The New Statesman 2015-04-27)

‘The Armenian world was torn apart by the 1915 genocide. Hundreds of thousands died and many more were forced to leave their homelands. Using the memoirs of one family, Marsoobian brings to life that painful times and tells a story of survival.’ (The National (UAE), February 2015 2015-02-01)
