In the Shadow of the Fortress (Out of Print)

by Bertha Nakshian Khetchian
1988, 167 p.

In the Shadow of the Fortress is the story of a young girl born in Husenig, Western or Ottoman Armenia, just before the Genocide of 1915-1917. Bertha Nakshian Ketchian experienced the horrors of that tragedy with her mother and sister. She witnessed and recorded in her memory the cruelty as well as devotion of neighbors, the hard choices of friends and family as she survived against all odds. Having crossed the desert and spent time in an orphanage supported by American help, Bertha eventually joined her father in Providence, Rhode Island.(Out of print)

A Crime of Silence: The Armenian Genocide

Permanent Peoples' Tribunal
London: Zed Pub., 1985, 249p

To mark the anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, the Permanent Peoples' Tribunal (successor to the Bertrand Russell Tribunal on Vietnam) held a special hearing in Paris on April 13-16, 1984. The Permanent Peoples' Tribunal was created to investigate major international crimes that no national or international body was willing or able to hear. This volume reproduces the evidence and papers delivered at the Tribunal's hearings, and its Verdict. The Tribunal's jury included three Nobel Prize winners and ten other eminent jurists, theologians, academics and political figures from various Western and Third World countries. This was the first international forum to clearly affirm the Armenian Genocide. A highlight of the Tribunal's verdict was that the Young Turk government during WWI was guilty of genocide, an international crime for which the Turkish state today must assume responsibility. The proceedings were first published in French in 1984, in English and Armenian in 1985, and in Portuguese in 2012.
