From Sarajevo: On meeting an exceptionally brave man who puts his life on the line in the name of truth and memory
Ragip Zarakolu is a Turkish publisher whose company, Belge Publishing, has published books on the Armenian genocide. It was an honor to meet him and one prays for his welfare.
People with views such as his have not fared well in Turkey in recent years.
Among the books he translates and publishes are those by Peter Balakian of Colgate College, who is known for his work on the Armenian genocide. I strongly recommend his work to you.
