My Grandmother



My Grandmother When Fethiye Cetin was growing up in the small Turkish town of Maden, she knew her grandmother as a happy and universally respected Muslim housewife It would be decades before her grandmother told her the truth that she was by birth a Christian and an Armenian, that her name was not Seher but Heranush, that most of the men in her village had been slaughtered in 1915, that she, along with most of the women and children, had been sent on a death march She had been saved and torn from her mother s arms by the Turkish gendarme captain who went on to adopt her But she knew she still had family in America Could Fethiye help her find her lost relations before she died There are an estimated two million Turks whose grandparents could tell them similar stories But in a country that maintains the Armenian genocide never happened, such talk can be dangerous In her heartwrenching memoir, Fethiye Cetin breaks the silence.

    This is a good translation of a book written by a Turkish lawyer Being so well educated, she realizes the truth and what the situation in Turkey in relation to minorities should be The Turkish government has prosecuted many Armenians and also many Turks for speaking or writing about the Armenian Genocide Here the author reveals the fact that her grandmother is Armenian and has hidden that fact for many years until her impending death She then tells her granddaughter that she is Armenian and This is a good translation of a book written by a Turkish lawyer Being so well educated, she realizes the truth and what the situation in Turkey in relation to minorities should be The Turkish government has prosecuted many Armenians and also many Turks for speaking or writing about the Armenian Genocide Here the author reveals the fact that her grandmother is Armenian and has hidden that fact for many years until her impending death She then tells her granddaughter that she is Armenian and has married a Turkish man, no doubt through some kind of force A woman who marries a Turkish man must convert to Islam A granddaughter reveals the fact that at least a million women are in that situation in Turkey Thus this book has tremendous value for Armenians in their bid to have the Armenian Genocide recognized and acknowledged by Turkey as well as the U.S The...
