Author: Dr. Khatchig Mouradian
Introduction by Dr. Seyhan Bayraktar, Zurich University of Applied Sciences, ZHAW

    In his new book, Dr. Khatchig Mouradian explores the history of the underground resistance operating in Ottoman Syria who protected the lives of thou-sands during the Armenian Genocide. Challenging the idea of Armenians as passive victims, Mouradian shows their active role in the formation of a humanita-rian network to fight the destruction of their people. 

    Dr. Khatchig Mouradian is a lecturer in Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies (MESAAS) at Columbia University.
