Sentinel of Truth: Gourgen Yanikian and the Struggle Against the Denial of the Armenian Genocide provides a gripping account of the assassination of two Turkish diplomats in California in 1973 by Gourgen Yanikian, a septuagenarian survivor of the Armenian Genocide. The book explains why a study of the global campaign against Turkey’s denial of the mass killings of its Armenian people must also include the retribution carried out by Yanikian 58 years later.
By describing in detail the effects Yanikian’s act had on the consciousness of Diasporan Armenians, author Tigran Kalaydjian sheds new light on the tightly knit group of people spearheading the drive for a comprehensive redress of the human rights disaster that took place in 1915. His powerful writing describes the many facets of the Diaspora’s nearly century-long struggle for justice.
“Highly recommended for anyone interested in the Armenian people, 20th-century history, United States jurisprudence, the triumph of the state over the individual, and the paucity of morality in modern-day politics; also, for the general reader, as an informative and heart-rending factual account of a little known chapter in European history.” – Michael J. Hunt, author of Matabele Gold and Two Days in Tehran
