Ellen Sarkisian Chestnut
Deli Sarkis: The Scars He Carried tells the story of Deli Sarkis, an Armenian who witnessed first-hand the atrocities of the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923. The book is a tale of two journeys: the author’s journey to discover the facts, places, and people in order to write her father’s story, and her father’s journey from near death to survival. Deli Sarkis’s physical and emotional scars were a constant reminder of the horrifying times he endured and the loss of so many he loved.
