“Are There Any Children for Sale?”: Genocide and the Transfer of Armenian Children (1915–1922)

Written by Keith David Watenpaugh
Much of what is written here also applies to most of the other non-Muslim races of the times, to include the Greeks and Assyrians who suffered the same fate. I know, that from speaking to my last remaining uncle over the last 5 years, in which he acknowledged the fact, that his mother (my grandmother), held fears that her 3 children (my 2x uncles and aunty), taken by the Turkish gangs in 1921 , may have suffered the same fate as these children described in this publication. She never saw her children again. This apparently was my grandmothers greatest fear, and as she stated, would have preferred to see them perish instead. An unbelievable thing for her to say, and very hard for me to comprehend, yet her reasoning may have been influenced by her first hand experiences.

Letter of recommendation policy
Dr. Watenpaugh is also the founding director of the UC Davis Human Rights Initiative. Human Rights is a new field, but one that allows scholars and students to exam enduring and important questions about suffering, the destruction of culture, injustice, and power and powerlessness in ways that transcend established disciplines.   The HRI exists to build faculty and graduate student capacity in the research and teaching of Human Rights, as well as to enable undergraduates to integrate Human Rights into their own fields of study.  Over the past four, years, the HRI has grown from a series of faculty conversations that led to the creation of the Interdisciplinary Minor in Human Rights (which graduate its first minors in 2011-2012) to a diverse project embracing the several elements of the university’s mission.
