The book has been published in two languages: Armenian and English. The illustrated volume includes some unique materials from the world press of 19-20th centuries. The collection pictures realistically the Turkish crimes against civilization and humanity.
“These pictures are the passports of Ottoman Turkey,” the author of the book said. He added that the first three copies of such books will henceforth be sent to the President, Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Turkey. He signed three copies and assured they would be sent to the addresses.
The crimes have constantly been in the limelight of the world’s press attention.

These condemning publications about the Turkish violence against Armenians serve as mediated testimonies of the historical actuality of the Armenian Genocide.
