Schaller, Dominik J.

The murder and expulsion of Anatolian Armenians during World War I is still labelled as a "forgotten genocide". However, the fate of the Armenians has attracted significant attention and a real avalanche of books and articles on the Armenian catastrophe has been published in recent years. And although the Turkish state still denies the Armenian Genocide, the event has entered the realm of global collective memory (not least due to the impact of the internationally perceived commemoration of the 90th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide in 2005).

What is still largely forgotten, however, are the murder, expulsion and deportation of other ethnic groups like Assyrians, Greeks, Kurds and Arabs by the Young Turks. If at all, these victim groups’ fates are dealt with mainly in their own national histories. However, since Armenian, Assyrian, Greek and Kurdish national histories are mainly concerned with their own groups' doom the wider context is largely amiss. Furthermore, their results are lost for a wider historical scholarship. To assess the knowledge on these groups and to overcome a national historical approach is the aim of this thematic issue of the Journal of Genocide Research. It will contribute to our understanding of the Young Turks' population and extermination policies in all its complexities and help to bring the forgotten victims' stories "back" into genocide scholarship.
