Genocide of its academic journal, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, printed by
Oxford University Press.

years on several aspects of the Armenian Genocide. The authors include Peter Balakian, Shaun O’Dwyer, Taner Akçam, Donald Bloxham, Jonathan
Markovitz, and Katharine Derderian.

Per USHMM, “Between the onset of World War I and the
founding of the Turkish Republic in 1923 approximately 1.5 million Armenians,
or more than half of the Ottoman Empire’s Armenian population, died as a result
of deportations, starvation, serial massacres, and mass executions. With the
intent of informing, Holocaust
and Genocide Studies offer this special edition reflecting on the
Armenian Genocide, featuring selected articles from past issues. The six
articles included in this virtual issue examine various aspects of the
genocide, including its denial, and are available to read online for a limited
time.”
