A beautiful, wrenching debut novel chronicling the life of a family struggling for survival during the Armenian genocide in Turkey, in 1915. At the center: Yerwant, who, at thirteen, left his home in the Anatolian hills of Turkey to study at an Armenian boarding school in Venice. Now, in May 1915, after forty years, he is planning a long-awaited reunion with his family at their homestead, Skylark Farm. But while joyful preparations for Yerwant’s arrival are being made in the town of his birth, Italy enters the Great War and closes its borders. At the same time, in Turkey, Yerwant’s family begins a brutal odyssey of forced marches and prison camps, hunger and humiliation at the hands of the Young Turks who are determined to rid their nation of minorities. In the unfolding story we follow Yerwant’s family as it struggles to survive and as four of its children set out on a dangerous and daring course of their own: to reach Yerwant, and safety, in Italy. Antonia Arslan draws on the story of her own family to tell the story of Skylark Farm. She has transformed the “obscure memories” that are her heritage into a novel as lyrical and poignant as a fable.… (mer)

“Nelle plaghe dell’oriente / sia pace sulla terra / non più sangue ma sudore / irrori le vene dei campi / e al tocco della campana di ogni paese / sia canto di benedizione…”

Il genocidio degli armeni è stato uno di quei crimini contro l’umanità, come molti altri rimasti nascosti nelle pieghe della storia, tipo, per esempio, quello degli indiani d’america, di cui però nessuno caldeggierà mai un giorno della memoria, soprattutto per non infastidire troppo quei paesi teatro di queste epiche imprese che a tutt’oggi rivestono ruoli importantissimi nei delicati equilibri del pianeta.
Un racconto allucinante, quello di Antonia Arslan, che ricostruisce le vicende delle stragi e delle deportazioni degli armeni, con un’agghiacciante cronaca, lucida e particolareggiata, narrando in questo modo anche le vicende della sua famiglia, coinvolta nei tragici avvenimenti.
Sarà un genocidio iniziato e portato a termine dal governo turco con un’operazione progettata e pianificata a tavolino. C’è da dire che, ieri come oggi, i turchi non sono mai andati troppo per il sottile nel regolare prima con gli armeni dopo con i curdi quelli che per loro sono soltanto affari interni.
La prosa della scrittrice descrive egregiamente, anche perché emotivamente coinvolta, i sentimenti di un popolo, quello armeno, profondamente unito da valori comuni, tra cui non ultimi quelli cristiani, che dovrà affrontare una tragedia immensa, trovandosi poi alla fine disorientato e senza più una patria.
Una cruda testimonianza di quella che fu tra le prime pulizie etniche operate nel secolo scorso, in maniera cruenta e sanguinosa, a danno di un popolo di cui il nazionalismo turco mal tollerava la presenza sul suo territorio, ma anche momenti emozionanti legati ai ricordi delle tante persone morte in quell’assurdo olocausto.

Without a doubt, this is one of the most gripping books I've read in a very long time. The author tells the story of what happened to her Armenian family just before and during the Armenian genocide of 1915. Genocide must be one of the worst things that can happen to anyone, but when it is described through the eyes of survivors and relatives like Antonia Arslan does, your heart goes out to a people you've never met. In this book, you get a privileged look into the rich culture of the Armenian people, their sense of kindness, humour, style, their ways and habits. But it's also about unconditional love and friendship, bravery, courage, compassion, perseverance and dignity. Some parts of the book are really very hard to read because they tell in detail what happened to these people, but I think, if you can stand it, it's our duty as human beings to try to understand what happened.

Mi ha raccontato la storia di un popolo che non conoscevo, la forza delle sue donne e la crudeltà degli uomini che non ha limiti. molto diretto e intenso.

Un libro da leggere per conoscere un periodo della nostra storia poco noto e spesso censurato . La storia e’ atroce (io ho sofferto leggendolo) e nonostante cio’ , l'autrice riesce a raccontarla con una prosa scorrevole che a tratti diventa quasi fiabesca. Da leggere ( )

At bottom--and he's also ashamed of this, as it if were a military inefficiency--the colonel knows the advantages of tolerance, understands that the darkest day for a country is the one when, in order to feel united, it feels the need to eliminate a defenseless segment of its population.
