This is the first English translation of Soghomon Tehlirian’s memoir, which was originally published in 1953. It is a fascinating account of Tehlirian’s experiences during World War I, including his witness to the Armenian Genocide and his visceral need to avenge the mass-murder of over a million Armenians, including 84 members of his own family. Remembrances: The Assassination of Talaat Pasha also relates Tehlirian’s induction into the ARF’s assassination campaign, “Operation Nemesis,” to liquidate Turkish leaders who had been responsible for the Armenian Genocide of 1915. This is a complex yet well-written account which lends itself to serious examination and analysis.
