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.

    Moslem Women

    Moslem Women is built around six main chapters; half are devoted to the place and experiences of Moslem women, and half consider the Christian mission to these women. The Zwemers acknowledge some of the great women of Islamic history, such as Rabia, the famous early mystic, and Nurah Mahal, wife of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir. They speak in glowing terms about advances in the women’s situation in post-Ottoman Turkey. Their work is dedicated to serving Muslims and to seeing them as people rather than as faceless numbers; it is an excellent model for today’s Christians who feel called to engagement with Islam.
