Missak Khralian was a child survivor of the Armenian Genocide. He was a 14-year-old boy in 1915 when Ottoman authorities embarked on a genocidal campaign to erase the Armenian presence in the Ottoman Empire. Khralian’s own ancestral village of Til (in Palahovid or Palou) was one of 40 Armenian settlements targeted for destruction in this district. It was a small settlement of 25 Armenian households and 10 Kurdish and Turkish ones. The core of his memoir covers the years between 1914 and 1922. It is a powerful work of seminal importance. Khralian's memoir is part of the Gomidas Institute Armenian Genocide Documentation project. It can be compared to other child-survivor accounts from this region.
