"The Case of Soghomon Tehlirian” is a fascinating, multidimensional document. It is a trial transcript, which offers the reader a front row seat to a riveting trial which established a number of legal precedents. “For the first time in legal history” wrote Robert Kempner, a law student who attended the trial, and who subsequently became a key prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials, “it was recognized that other countries could legitimately combat gross human rights violations caused by a government, especially genocide, without committing unauthorized intervention in the internal affairs of another country” “The Case of Soghomon Tehlirian” was also instrumental in provoking Raphael Lemkin, who coined the word geno-cide, to investigate the paradox of how a single man, Tehlirian, could be prosecuted for murder, yet the murdered man, Talaat, had almost gotten away after successfully planning and prosecuting the extermination of over a million souls! About the Author: Attorney Vartkes Yeghiayan, well know for his multi-million dollar insurance class action settlements on behalf of Armenian Genocide heirs, is the co-author of this fascinating novel, which is part of a series on the Armenian Genocide.
