    I loved this book; I wanted to get a real memoir from a female victim of the Armenian genocide and this was a great read especially as a first view into the Armenian genocide because while it could put the reader in the moment giving the reader understanding it was not overwhelmingSince reading this book I have become enthralled with memoirs from other victims of the Armenian genocide; I have bought about eight other memoirs of female victims of the Armenian genocide all of which I plan to read

    After a very academic book about the general history of the Armenians this was uite refreshing While both perspectives interested me I found myself rushing through Margaret's sections to get back to Ester's story

    Read this if you are at all intrigued by history but the struggles people face and how they over come them If you want to feel a passion about gross injustices in this world and to learn about them they happen and the I read the I learn that it has happened over and over and over again and most of the time we turn out attention away pretend it's not happening and go on with our lives Sad And something I want to learn about because maybe the we learn about it the power we will have to stop it?

    I read this chronicle of Esther Ajemian's life written by her daughter Margaret because Margaret will be a speaker at USF in November and I plan to hear her presentation Margaret's account of the horrors her mother witnessed and survived during the Armenian genocide in 1915 is an amazing tribute to her courageous mother This memoir is so well written as Margaret weaves her own story along with speaking her mother's truth It's an inspirational story of how the children of genocide survivors can face the horror of their parents' suffering with such courage and strength

    A daughter tells her mother's story of the Armenian genocide It was an easy book to read and was very eye opening I had have read very little of the Armenian genocide only from Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides and having read this book I can see why Hilter used it as one of his rationalizations for the death camps I would recommend it I have it on my kindle and can lend it if you have a kindle

    I didn't really like the way this book was written but I am blown away that I had no idea this genocide of an entire group of our Christian brothers and sisters ever even happened Only one century ago and no one knows about it that's scary
