The massacre of Armenians that occurred in northern Persia in 1918 was a continuation of the Armenian Genocide which began in 1915 in the Ottoman Empire.
This book contains the words and the stories of the survivors of the massacre.
The author’s grandmother, Arousiak, and mother, Liana, were the sole survivors of the massacre that took place in the city of Khoy, Persia (now Iran), in 1918.
