Among the attempted genocides that took place in the twentieth century, the so-called "Assyrian Genocide" that took place during World War I, which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people in the Ottoman Empire, is one of the least familiar, at least for the Western world. That so little is known about these atrocities is at least partly the result of a lack of first hand accounts of those who experienced them. The present work attempts to rectify this lack of knowledge, as it is the first hand account by Suleyman Henno of the genocide that took place in the region of Tur Abdin in 1915. This volume is edited and introduced by Julius Yeshu Çiçek, former Metropolitan of Central Europe.
