This book is the English-language edition of the memoirs of Zaven Der Yeghiayan, the Armenian Patriarch of Constantinople during the First World War (1913-1922) and in its aftermath. The memoirs cover the momentous years from his election in 1913 to his withdrawal in 1922, a traumatic period for the Armenian nation marked by the rule of the Young Turks and their criminal legacy of genocide. Patriarch Zaven’s recounting of his agonizing conversations with Talaat Pasha and other Young Turk leaders, his appeals to European and Church leaders, his encounters and disappointments with Armenian figures, and his critical observations and pointed anecdotes provide glimpses of the mentality of the times.
