Armin T. Wegner’s letters and photographs from the Ottoman Empire during World War I remain some of the most important eyewitness accounts of the Armenian Genocide surviving today. Wegner was also a writer, poet, and playwright who paid a high price for speaking out against tyranny and injustice throughout his life. In this AGBU WebTalk, Dr. Johanna Wernicke-Rothmayer considers Wegner’s journey from a young law student in Berlin to the man who documented and brought to light the unimaginable horrors he witnessed in the Ottoman Empire in the shadows of WWI.
