Presentation by Khatchig Mouradian (Columbia), author of Resistance Network: The Armenian Genocide and Humanitarianism in Ottoman Syria, 1915-1918

The Resistance Network is the history of an underground network of humanitarians, missionaries, and diplomats in Ottoman Syria who helped save the lives of thousands during the Armenian Genocide. Khatchig Mouradian challenges depictions of Armenians as passive victims of violence and subjects of humanitarianism, demonstrating the key role they played in organizing a humanitarian resistance against the destruction of their people.
