Compilation of “The Red Rugs of Tarsus” and “Betrayed Armenia”
Two accounts of the Armenian (“Adana”) massacres of 1909 in the Ottoman Empire by two female writers: one, an Armenian from British Burma named Diana Abgar, who served as Armenia’s first ambassador to Japan; the other, an American named Helen Davenport Gibbons, who as a result of her travels in the Ottoman Empire during the massacres was moved to write an account of the events. This volume, containing both of these informative accounts, is essential reading for those interested in the history of the Adana massacres.
