When tragic events that threaten the very existence of an entire group of people occur, it is extremely important to record the experiences of those who survived these events. The record of these accounts helps keep them alive in the memories of those who live long after the events occur, and the recounting of the events helps to ensure that they will not happen again. The present volume is a collection of poems recounting the suffering of the Christians in Turkey, particularly those at Tur Abdin. While the poems cover a broad historical period, the majority of these poems are dedicated to the atrocities of the attempted genocide of 1915.
