Stories of Turks who risked their lives to save their Armenian friends are not that easy to reach by merely going through secondary literature. The widespread geographical location of collections of victims’ accounts and constraints on time and resources limit literature surveys. Also, most of the stories remain unrecorded and only transmitted orally.
For this reason, we ask every visitor of this website to consider emailing us not only stories they may have come across or may have heard told by their relatives.
Every submission must clearly state the name and location of the contributor. Contributors may opt to not publish their names on our website, but we will still need to keep records of where we get stories.
Stories must include as many factual details as possible, such as the full name of the survivor, the persons who helped or rescued them, where and when the event occurred.
When a story that is submitted to PCO is approved, it will then be posted on the website. The stories may be edited for language and style purposes.
Stories that are sent to us become part of the PCO database. PCO preserves the right to use these stories in publications and media productions.
Stories that are posted on this website can be cited only in part in written or spoken media. Full citation of the stories needs to be agreed in advance with PCO.
In both partial and full citations, we request that the PCO is notified and shown as the source.
Please reference the stories cited with their code number followed by the link to the website;
