Cover of Annihilation: A Story of the Armenian Genocide


Her government wants her dead. The Republic of Turkey doesn’t want you to hear about her.

Rosmerta Bedrosian is a thirteen-year-old girl living with her Armenian family in Eastern Anatolia in 1915. Frustrated by their declining fortunes, the Ottoman state needs a scapegoat. They find one in their Christian subjects and drive the Armenian population on death marches into the Syrian desert. Rosmerta witnesses acts of increasingly senseless violence and cruelty. How can she survive when everyone around her is dying? 

Annihilation: A Story of the Armenian Genocide is both an engrossing coming-of-age story and a thrilling historical memoir. Michael Bosland’s first novel is a gripping tale of brutality with touching moments of human kindness and decency in the face of overwhelming horror.
