Rescue Practices During the Armenian Genocide

(p.163) 10 Rescue Practices During the Armenian Genocide
Resisting Genocide

Hasmik Tevosyan

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the rescue practices employed during the 1915 Armenian genocide committed by Ottoman Turkey. It examines the conditions and motives for rescue in the light of contextual variables before, during and after the deportation of the Armenians. It first considers the concept of the ‘Righteous among the Nations’ within the framework of the Armenian genocide and the significance of this designation for future reconciliation between victims and perpetrators. It then shows that the rescue of Armenians differed depending on whether one was in the phase prior to deportation or in the middle of it. It also discusses international relief work for Armenian survivors after Turkey signed the armistice in 1918.

Keywords:   rescue, genocide, deportation, Armenians, Righteous among the Nations, victims, perpetrators, international relief work, survivors, Turkey
