The Shadows of 1915
How long is the shadow of genocide? How does it affect the offspring of the survivors? And how do survivors and their families retain a belief in justice when atrocities go unpunished? These are some of the questions addressed in Jerry Burger’s novel, The Shadows of 1915.
“Shadows is set into action by an interaction between Turkish college students and sons of Armenian Genocide survivors. Amid the fallout, the characters must synthesize their family and community loyalties with the legal system and personal beliefs.”
– Lila Seidman, LA Times/Glendale News-Press
“(Burger) found the aftermath of the Armenian Genocide to be a compelling topic through which he could explore issues related to family and justice.”
– Aram Arkun, The Armenian Mirror-Spectator
