The Armenian Ghost in Turkey

Eng, Fr

In this AGBU WebTalk, journalists and authors, Laure Marchand and Guillaume Perrier speak about their first encounter with Turkey’s hidden Armenian past upon their arrival in Istanbul in 2005. The tensions that fueled Turkey’s first open and official academic debate of the Armenian Genocide and the events that followed over the ten years in which they lived and worked in the country as foreign correspondents, inspired their award-winning book Turkey and the Armenian Ghost. Here, they touch upon the major themes of their book and the “ghosts” of hidden Armenians who have lived in the shadow of a government in denial of its past for the last one hundred years.
