"... This unpunished genocide of our century which we call Armenocide. This genocide of a particular nature seems to have been the regular example to the series of genocides and it is interesting to study it as a "clinical case" of the first order in the records of crimes against humanity.

We have chosen this title for our study in a field which is both new and tragic in the "Collective Criminology" of our time. We propose to study this case thoroughly because in our opinion, it represents the most appropriate characteristics of the crime of a genocide..."
