A historian specializing in the late Ottoman Empire and modern Turkey. He was a founding director of the Gomidas Institute, and has edited and written critical introductions to several of the institute’s publications. Now director of the Taderon Press, he is developing the Sterndale Classics imprint.

   Turkey's ambassador in London (Letters, THES, May 11) is perhaps
   unaware of my report (http://www.gomidas.org) wherein I narrate the
   systematic manner in which Turkish archival authorities impeded my
   work. Incidentally, those records made available to me corroborate
   western accounts of the Armenian genocide.    Ara Sarafian
