17 04 2007 - The Genocide of the Armenians and Assyrians
Massacres and Resistance: The Genocide of the Armenians and Assyrians Based on New Archival Evidence
A Lecture by - Dr. David Gaunt
Professor of History, Södertörn University College, Stockholm, Sweden
This lecture will be based on Dr. Gaunt’s recently- published book Massacres, Resistance, Protectors:
Muslim-Christian Relations in Eastern Anatolia during World War I (Gorgias Press, 2006), which will be on sale and available for signing by the author.
Gaunt will detail how the persecution of Armenian and Assyrian Christian minorities was organized on the national and local levels in places where Armenian and Assyrian populations overlap. Case studies involve the Turkish occupation of Urmia and its surrounding villages, the Assyrian tribes in Hakkari,the massacres of Armenians in Diyarbekir and Mardin,the massacres of Syriacs in the hundreds of villages in Tur Abdin, the successful armed resistance mounted by the villagers of Azakh and Ayn Wardo, and the victory of Antranik’s Armenian and Assyrian volunteers at the battle of Dilman.

Gaunt’s work is based on unique access to hundreds of documents in the archives of Istanbul and Ankara, as well as documents of Iranian, Russian, Arabic, Armenian, Assyrian, French, and German origin. Most of these documents have never been published before. In addition, nearly forty persons were interviewed about their experiences of the war period. The Turkish documents confirm events and decisions of what was believed to have happened, but for which evidence has been lacking. In some ways the new documents fill in the blank spaces in the history of genocide.
