Open Wounds: Armenians, Turks, and a Century of Genocide

 
9781849044585: Open Wounds: Armenians, Turks, and a Century of Genocide
Revue de presse :

'In this extraordinary and beautifully-written book, Cheterian tells us the little known story of the aftermath of the Armenian Genocide of 1915. He reaches into the history and present-day politics of Armenians and Turks to tell a story and provide explanations that have been neglected or elided by others. There is no other text like this.' --Ronald G. Suny, Professor Emeritus of Political Science and History, University of Chicago and former chairman of the Society for Armenian Studies

'This is an important book about the distortion of history in the service of realpolitik. It demonstrates, cooly and clinically, how the desire of Western nations to keep Turkey 'on side' has produced official amnesia about the Ottoman Empire's attempted destruction of the Armenian race. Cheterian's fair and finely written reflections on Armenia s neuralgic need for justice, and the pathological inability of a modern Turkey to face the facts of its past, ends with hope that it may do so although not soon. This book makes an important contribution to the healing of old wounds.' --Geoffrey Robertson QC, human rights barrister, Doughty Street Chambers and author of An Inconvenient Genocide: Who Now Remembers the Armenians?

'[Open Wounds] is a probing examination of the impact of 1915 and its aftermath on not just the victims but also the perpetrators of the atrocities. ... Some of the most moving chapters and episodes of the book are where Cheterian scratches the surface of today's Turkey. A slightly closer look begins to reveal traces of a vibrant [Armenian] population in parts of Turkey where one might forget it had ever existed. ... Cheterian's book is ... timely, detailed and intensely moving.' --Turkish Review

Présentation de l'éditeur :

The assassination in Istanbul in 2007 of the author Hrant Dink, the high-profile advocate of Turkish-Armenian reconciliation, reignited the debate in Turkey on the annihilation of the Ottoman Armenians. Many Turks subsequently reawakened to their Armenian heritage, in the process reflecting on how their grandparents were forcibly Islamised and Turkified, and the suffering they endured to keep their stories secret. There was public debate about Armenian property confiscated by the Turkish state and books were published about the extermination of the minorities. The silence had been broken. After the First World War, Turkey forcibly erased the memory of the atrocities, and traces of Armenians, from their historic lands, to which the international community turned a blind eye. The price for this amnesia was, Cheterian argues, 'a century of genocide'. Turkish intellectuals acknowledge the price a society must pay collectively to forget such traumatic events, and that Turkey cannot solve its recurrent conflicts with its minorities--like the Kurds today--nor have an open and democratic society without addressing its original sin: the Armenian Genocide, on which the Republic was founded.
