This has all changed now thanks to the hard work and sacrifice of Sofia Kostos and her book "Before the Silence". Sofia has painstakingly put together an archive of firsthand Western News reports, which are now easily accessible to, not only Scholars, but also the greater public for the first time. From one page to the next the reader is escorted back in time through various articles from the New York Times, Washington Post, and Christian Science Monitor which delve into details likely to render the reader utterly shocked and goose-bump ridden.
The numerous historical documents and commentary found within the pages of this book help the reader to gain a strong understanding of the sequence of events, as well as obtain a broader understanding of the Genocides. From detailed accounts of massacres, death marches and other often forgotten atrocities such as the use of Turkish Baths for parboiling victims, this book shows step by step the systematic nature of the persecutions that should assuredly be referred to as the 20th Century's First Holocaust.
"Before the Silence" is simply a must read for anyone interested in the Greek, Armenian, and Assyrian Genocides.
--Theodore G. Karakostas
"Before The Silence" is a book that doesn't use story telling by individuals, it is a documented account of newspaper reports on a subject so blatantly against the Christian population in Turkey by a regime that for a long long time has resorted to ethnic cleansing of millions of people.
We can no longer turn the other way and every historian has an obligation to take into consideration of such a collection of valuable information.
Peter Yiannos, Ph.D.
