These pages explain the reasons for the Armenian genocide of 1915. Although Turkey denies it . in 2000 . the French Parliament recognized it . and in 2016 made its denial a fined crime. Emmanuel Macron declared April 24 as Armenian Genocide Commemoration Day in France. Also recognized by U.S. House of Representatives and Senate . Pope Francis called it "the first genocide of the 20th century." There is a small Christian country located in the South Caucasus . wedged between huge Muslim nations (Turkey . Iran and Azerbaijan) . whose people have suffered like few others the most tragic and unfortunate vicissitudes of modern history. Much has been said about the Jewish Holocaust perpetrated during World War II . but little is known about the ruthless extermination of the Armenians by the Turks in the late 19th and early 20th centuries . which served as an example for Hitler. This is a moving historical novel that . through the vicissitudes of the Nazarian-Nakhoudian family . intertwines the lives of the Armenian victims with the Turkish perpetrators. But . above all . it is a denunciation of how a state becomes genocidal of its own citizens simply because they are different.
