The memoir, “Forced into Genocide,” was edited by Adrienne Alexanian, from her father Yervant Edward Alexanian’s handwritten chronicles. As an Armenian conscript in the Turkish army, Yervant was an unwilling eyewitness to the massacre and displacement of his countrymen in Ottoman Turkey during WWI. Alexanian was forced to become an onlooker while he watched the atrocities unfold. His story of resourceful action and fateful turn is a suspenseful “insider’s account” of a Genocide survivor.
