Forced into Genocide is the memoir of Yervant N. Alexanian, an eyewitness to the massacre and dislocation of his family and countrymen in Ottoman Turkey during World War 1. Alexanian experienced the Armenian Genocide as a conscript in the Ottoman Turkish Army, giving him a unique perspective on the genocide that cannot be found in other literature. His memoir documents the cruelty of the genocide, as well as its rare, unexpected acts of humanity.
