Armenian Atrocities in The Novels of “Nora İle Şir Mehmet”, “Ölüm Ötesine Kaçış”, and “Yüreğim İrevan’da Kaldı”
The Eastern Anatolia Region was the most affected region by the massacres committed by Armenian gangs. Due to the authority gap caused by the retreat of Russian army after the collapse of Tsarist Russia, and with the provocations of Western states, Armenians who were caught up in the dreams of a “Great Armenia from sea to sea” created tragic events in the region that imprinted in the people’s memories. Within this region, Iğdır and its surroundings which is adjacent to the Russia, Iran, and Azerbaijan territories given to Armenia by Russia,had their share of these brutal massacres and genocide attempts. These genocide attempts, which caused tens of thousands of people to be tortured, disabled, and killed in a bloody manner in Iğdır and its surroundings, also led to people leaving their land, forced migration and loss of property. When we look at the events from this perspective, we see that these brutal events have social dimensions as well as historical, political, economic, legal dimensions. For this reason, while examining the massacres committed by Armenians, we should evaluate them by looking at their place in social memory and their effects on generations, without overlooking any aspect, and by establishing connections based on cause and effect relationship. While analyzing the major events that have left their mark on history, their historical aspect should not be the only focus point. While examining these events, their social aspects should not be neglected, their sociological and psychological effects, and manifestations of these effects should be examined as well. These bloody events that Armenians created in our lives also created a great shock in our social memory. For a time, the society suppressed this great shock in its mind and tried to forget it, and in time, they tried to express them in certain ways. Literature, music, and other fine arts are some of the different forms of this expression. In this brief study, we will try to look at these large-scale bloody events from a social perspective. We aim to examine the reflections of these massacres and genocide attempts in literature with the examples available.
