After 80 years, Exiled, Story of an Armenian Girl, is finally back in print. The story is a real life adventure written for children and first published in 1933. In the book Serpouhi Tavoukdjian chronicles her childhood as she is forced from her home outside of Istanbul and sent on a death march with thousands of other Armenians into Syria. The reader learns first hand what life was like during what is now known as the Armenian genocide. Ultimately a tale of triumph over darkness, the book will make a lasting impression on readers. This edition of the book features an afterword filling in the details of Mrs. Tavoukdjian’s life. All proceeds from the book, after costs, will be donated to United To End Genocide (http://endgenocide.org/). The story of Serpouhi is a uniquely gripping account accessible to children and adults alike. In reviving Serpouhi’s story Harkin both attests to the endurance of that tale, which has stayed with her since childhood, and helps to ensure that the story of one of the most tragic events in recent history is learned from and not forgotten. Daniel Sullivan, Director of Policy and Government Relations, United to End Genocide Serpouhi Tavoukjian’s Exiled is one of the first memoirs of the Armenian genocide to be published in English. Eighty year later it remains an important narrative of testimony and witness and a powerful woman’s voice. Nicole Harkin has done a great service in bringing it back into print with her own afterword. Peter Balakian, Author, Black Dog of Fate
