From to , an estimated 1,, Armenians perished.
Those who managed to stay alive were scattered across the globe. United States—something I had previously thought was a little glamorous. After learning more about my family history, I found it heartbreaking. Entire families had been lost or severed from one another. Stateless, some of them drifting like embers after a fire, the rest just ashes.

I would like to meet the family had in brace the family with my heart I feel the pain and sorrow what those people went through I will always remember that date 24 April I didn't know anything about this period of history in relation to the fate of the Armenian people.
For that reason, I chose this book, believing a memoir would be a more personal story than a history book. Events follow two time periods - a modern day journey by a young woman - relative of the man who suffered during early s. Her search is to find the places and people mentioned in a set of diaries which reveal Stephan's story. The other time period is about the events that Stephan experienced as an Armenian during a time of persecution.
I found the modern part to be engaging. Its first person tale and lively narrator was good but these sections were too short.
Unfortunately the sections telling the past are in the third person and the narrator is monotone. I got bored during these bits, even when truly terrible hardships and tragedy was being described. Overall a bit disappointing and I don't feel like I understand the period or the experience. By: Dawn Anahid MacKeen. Length: 11 hrs and 17 mins.

ISBN: hardcover hardcover ebook Scope and Content: "The inspiring story of a young Armenian's harrowing escape from genocide and of his granddaughter's quest to retrace his steps. Growing up, Dawn MacKeen heard fragments of her grandfather Stepan's story, of how he was swept up in the deadly mass deportation of Armenians during World War I and of how he miraculously managed to escape.
