ERIC BOGOSIAN BOOK TRACKS GENOCIDE REPRISAL

Boston Globe, MA
Jan 15 2015

By Stephen KurkjianGlobe Correspondent

Woburn-raised actor-writer Eric Bogosian spoke briefly Tuesday at
Holy Trinity Church in Cambridge about his book "Operation Nemesis,"
an account of the plot to kill the leaders of the Ottoman Turk Empire
responsible for the Armenian Genocide begun in 1915. Bogosian (above),
whose parents are Armenian, has a lengthy resume that includes the play
(and subsequent film) "Talk Radio," three novels, and a leading role
on "Law and Order: Criminal Intent." "Operation Nemesis," his first
work of nonfiction, will be published in April, the 100th anniversary
of the genocide in which more than 1 million Armenians died and
countless more were deported from eastern Turkey. (Bogosian's book
tracks the efforts of a small band of Armenians to track down and
assassinate several of the leaders of the Ottoman Empire, including
Interior Minister Talaat Pasha, who escaped Turkey after the fall of
the regime in 1918.) Turkish-born Taner Akcam, a professor at Clark
University and a leading authority on the Armenian Genocide, also
spoke Tuesday, focusing on the rescue of Armenian women and orphans
by the League of Nations in the years following the genocide.
