really liked it
bookshelves: human-rights-genocide, balkans, turkey, armenia
Recommended for: readers who learn history through novels
Read in June, 2007

I picked this book up after reading an article on the Armenian Holocaust in The New York Review of Books specifically because I know so little about the Armenian Holocaust. Robert Fisk has written extensively about the Armenian Holocaust, and I've read excerpts of his essays, but Forgotten Fire is the first book I've read about the history.

It's certainly difficult to read, parts of the book literally turned my stomach, but it's an important book.

I am currently reading this along side of A long way gone: Memories of a Boy Soldier, which was somewhat unintentional (it's how the holds on the library became available), and has deepened my understanding of being a child in the midst of war.

Please recommend other books on the Armenian Holocaust.

Meaghan I haven't read it, but I think The Road from Home: the Story of an Armenian Girl by David Kherdian may be what you're looking for.

Corinne Thanks! I'll check it out.
