Lorna Touryan Miller.

Lorna Touryan Miller. Between 1915 and 1923, over one million Armenians died, victims of a genocidal campaign that is still denied by the Turkish government. Thousands of other Armenians suffered torture, brutality, deportation. Yet their story has received scant attention. This would have been much more powerful if they had just given us the stories whole instead of tearing them into little pieces: Violence against Women & Children, etc.

Authored by Donald Miller, USC Prof. amp; wife Lorna Miller whose parents survived the Armenian Genocide (AG) providing Armenian translation from personally conducted audio-taped interrogations with 103 (62f/41m) Armenians born in Turkey. Interviewees largely garnered from Southern California. Using "Interview Guide" as format allowed representative sampling & synthesis of queries for proper balance of content & a check for internal consistency. University of California Press. All I knew of oral history was gained from reading Studs Terkel's popular books. I was unaware that there were professional journals and societies, such as the Oral History Association. Berkeley Los Angeles London. I was also unprepared for the amount of work that would be involved in translating and transcribing tapesa task that Lorna heroically undertook while raising our two small children. Indeed, I think that in the early years, Lorna's commitment to the project was stronger than mine. Later, she would talk about it as the "blood call": an irresistible force demanding that she confront the history.

Donald E. Miller is Professor of Religion at the University of Southern California and the author of Reinventing American Protestantism: Christianity in the New Millennium (California, 1997). Lorna Touryan Miller is Director of the Office for Creative Connections at All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, California. Her parents survived the Armenian genocide. In 1978 we began interviewing in earnest, as well as familiarizing ourselves with oral history methodology and other oral history projects on Armenian survivors. I did some of the original interviews, but it soon became clear that survivors felt more comfortable talking about their experiences in their mother tongue.

How we measure 'reads'.

by Donald E. Miller and Lorna Touryan Miller. Through interviews with a hundred elderly Armenians, Donald and Lorna Miller give the "forgotten genocide" the hearing it deserves.

Between 1915 and 1923, over one million Armenians died, victims of a genocidal campaign that is still denied by the Turkish government. Thousands of other Armenians suffered torture, brutality, deportation. Yet their story has received scant attention. Through interviews with a hundred elderly Armenians, Donald and Lorna Miller give the "forgotten genocide" the hearing it deserves. Survivors raise important issues about genocide and about how people cope with traumatic experience. Much here is wrenchingly painful, yet it also speaks to the strength of the human spirit.

"Survivors: An Oral History of the Armenian Genocide", Donald & Lorna Miller, UC Press, CA, 1999, ISBN-13 978-0-520-212956-4, pbk 192 pgs., plus 3 Appendices 15 pgs., Notes 24 pgs., Biblio 5 pgs., Index 4 pgs., Map & 15 pgs. of B/W photos, 9" x 6"

Authored by Donald Miller, USC Prof. of Relig. & wife Lorna Miller whose parents survived the Armenian Genocide (AG) providing Armenian translation from personally conducted audio-taped interrogations with 103 (62f/41m) Armenians born in Turkey. Interviewees largely garnered from Southern California. Using "Interview Guide" as format allowed representative sampling & synthesis of queries for proper balance of content & a check for internal consistency.

Book is in 3 Parts: - I: Historical Background, II: Survivor Accounts, and III: Analysis. - but also Appendices on Methodology, Interview Guide, & Survivors Interviewed. A large portion of the material is similar in detail, very often many precise quotations, etc. of same material given in most contemporary books on AG, thusly, names, dates, places & events are validated & often same reference sources utilized extensively.

However, unlike most treatises on AG, this oral history provides a much keener, even intimate depiction of life in Anatolia before & after the massacres & genocide that details ghoulish atrocious barbaric acts of torture, killings, rape; of family dissolutions; of adopting survival techniqes occasionally working to thwart being murdered or quash a suicide. There are sundry, detailed references to acts of kindness shown by a few Turks, rarely a Kurd; but much tribute is paid to that help & hope extended by charitable organizations (for the "starving Armenians") of several countries, of missionaries & of orphanages, etc. wonderfully helpful to the child survivors. A large section devoted to emigrations, resettlements, & of survivor's responses & their moral reflections on the genocide is also unique to this book.

The photographic reproductions are flunky due to inferior paper quality. If one is bent on reading 3 or 4 books on AG, this should be one of those books because it reflects with such great clarity the horrific evils of war & genocide on infants, children, mothers & the family structure. It examines the anatomy of human evils even when the flame of hope flickered with great uncertainty.

I just finished reading this book...it is riveting, well written, accessible, of manageable length (192) pages, and in general a supurb introduction to the subject for readers such as myself who didn't even know where or what Armenia was until I picked up this book. I really hope that the general public becomes more aware of the Armenian genicide and starts demanding that Turkey, and their Kurdish henchmen, own up to this awful crime and stop denying that the genicide of the Armenian nation ever happened. It is shocking that in my entire life I have never heard one word spoken in my church or in any school I have attendedabout the Armenian genicide. All I have ever heard about is the Jewish Holocaust (sp?), as if that were the first genicide of this century. A case can be made that if the world had become sufficiently enraged by the Armenian genicide, the Jewish Holocaust would never have happened. (Page 5 of the book states, "There is a universal tendency to avoid seeing, as well as remembering, the human capacity for evil. Adolf Hitler understood this well when, on August 22. 1939 he said to his military commanders regarding his plans for Poland: "Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?"".) The book points out, in passing, that some Armenians believe that the reason the United States does not acknowledge that the Turks committed genicide against the Armenians, is because Turkey is a strong ally of the United States in the Middle East. I don't think it is possible to read this book without being profoundly affected by it. I don't personally have time to read a huge, thick book on the subject, so this 192 page, well written, emotionally powerful is probably all I'll ever have the time to read on the subject. I wish all Americans would read this book. Do read this book. Please.

This book kept me riveted. I could not imagine the terrible things the Armenians faced and continue to face due to those who deny this tragedy.

I have not read enough in this book to comment on it yet. What little I have read I would give it the four star rating.

Very sad presenation
It would be good as movie material
Egoyan we need another artistic production of all these stories put together
Our parents and grandparents were part of this
No better way than to put this type of context into a movie format
