‘H agop Arsenian’s memoir chronicles his life and his traumatic experience on a death march, during the Armenian genocide, from his home in Ovajik, Ottoman Turkey in 1915 through the long ordeal of the march through Anatolia, into the Syrian desert, and ultimately to a new and prosperous life in Jerusalem by the 1930s. His grand-daughter, the scholar Arda Arsenian Ekmekji, has done a superb translation and has also made a careful, layered, scholarly edition with her introduction, notes, maps, and photographs. Arsenian’s memoir is a classic modern Armenian story of survival against odds, perseverance, and rebirth.’
