Reports of the genocide of Armenians, which appeared in the US press (1890-1922) were recently published in two volumes by Mkhitarian publishing of Yerevan. The books were compiled by Ara Ketibian of Australia and Mkhitarist Rev. Vahan Ohanian. The preface is by Prof. Alan Whitehorn of Canada.

The compilers present chronologically the voluminous amount of documents (articles, news reports, eyewitness accounts,etc.) which cover the Hamidian massacres (1894-1896), the Adana massacre (1909), the genocide of 1915 and its aftermath to 1922.

The first volume consists of 1,607 articles while the second has 1,059 pages of archival material. The massive oeuvre is of particular interest to experts in the field, to historians and students of Armenian and Turkish history.

The overall project will have ten volumes which will include reports from six major US newspapers: The New York Times, The Boston Daily Globe, The Chicago Tribune, The Christian Science Monitor, and the Washington Post.

An earlier volume (2011) titled "Armenians at the Twilight of the Ottoman Era" was compiled by Vosgan Mekhitarian of Los Angeles and Rev. Ohanian. The 1,612-page tome covered The New York Times reports from 1890 to 1914. It was part of a plan to compile news reports of the massacres and the genocide from the international press. According to Keghart sources, the research for the rest of the series has been completed but subsequent volumes haven't been published due to funding challenges.

  1. U.S. Media Reports on the Armenian Genocide

    Let me first thank the editor of Keghart for the above article.

    A small clarification is necessary, however, in relation to the last comment in the above article concerning funding for this project.

    Funding is available and in fact the printing of subsequent volumes is currently in progress. The Boston Daily Globe volume has already been printed and The Christian Science Monitor is next in line.

  2. How to buy?

    Can Mssrs. Vosgan Mekhitarian and Rev. Ohanian inform readers of how to order these volumes in the USA?

    1. The volumes are not for sale
      The volumes are not for sale but are being provided to select individuals and organizations, including major universities and public libraries throughout the world.
      The entire contents of the volumes, however, will soon be placed on line for use by the general public.
      Please also note that these volumes have been collated and edited by Ara Ketibian and Rev. Vahan Ohanian.
