DEATH MARCH: AN ARMENIAN SURVIVOR'S MEMOIR
Regular price $ 19.00
By Shahen Derderian, Translated by Ishkhan Jinbashian
Shahen Derderian was barely eight years old when the Ottoman Turkish government deported his family, along with the entire Armenian community of his native Sebastia (now Sivas). The uprooting was part of an elaborate Turkish plan to exterminate the Armenian population of Anatolia. In the ensuing forced marches, the Sebastia caravan – one among countless others – was subjected by the Turkish police and hired criminals to a systematic spree of murder, robbery, rape, and death by starvation and disease. Young Shahen survived the carnage through sheer miracle. In Death March, he tells a harrowing story of dehumanization and loss, whose enormity would eventually be matched only by the Armenian survivors’ spirit of renewal.
