Heath W. Lowry’s The Story Behind Ambassador Morgenthau’s Story argues that we need to reevaluate the galvanizing memoirs of the US ambassador to the Ottoman Empire during World War I. Henry Morgenthau served in the Ottoman capital between 1913 and 1916, the tumultuous years in which the Ottoman Empire under Young Turk leadership entered the Great War. What make the Morgenthau’s memoirs controversial is his description of the treatment of the Ottoman Armenians during this period. Armenians claim that the mass killings constituted a genocide, while Turks deny this was the case. Lowry’s study of Morgenthau’s book seeks to understand the ambassador’s rational for writing his work and to expose his claims as lies motivated by anti-Turkish sentiments.
