After the Armenian Genocide, thousands of Armenians lived and worked in the Turkish state alongside those who had persecuted their communities. Living in the context of pervasive denial, how did Armenians remaining in Turkey recorded their own history? Here, Talin Suciyan explores the life experienced by these Armenian communities as Turkey’s modernization project of the twentieth century gathered pace. She achieves this through analysis of remarkable, new primary material: Turkish state archives, minutes of the Armenian National Assembly, a multifaceted series of personal diaries, memoirs and oral histories, various Armenian newspapers, yearbooks and magazines, as well as statutes and laws that led to the continuing persecution of Armenians. The first history of its kind, The Armenians in Modern Turkey is a fresh contribution to the history of modern Turkey and the Armenian experience there.
