VAHAN CARDASHIAN: ADVOCATE EXTRAORDINAIRE FOR THE ARMENIAN CAUSE
Compiled by Vartkes Yeghiayan
This work finally reveals America's role in the Armenian Genocide. It also exposes America's ultimate calculated betrayal of the Armenian Cause. Attorney Vahan Cardashian was a Classical Hero who came out of nowhere, engaged in a Sisyphean struggle against the most powerful forces in human affairs, and paid the ultimate price by dying young from a broken political heart. His cause in life was the Armenian Cause, a Cause that America championed only to discard it soon after for economic self-interests. The book discloses that nine months before the Armenian Genocide began on April 1915, the New York-based attorney warned U.S. Secretary of War the Honorable Lindley M. Garrison about the Turkish plans of genocide. Cardashian's clarion call, however, was dismissed outright. And the rest is tragic history.
