abstract

Travel memoir-accounts created by travellers and missionaries in 1914 contain the pre-requisites of the Armenian Genocide of 1915. The Buxtons, British noblemen visiting Armenia, discovered the true creative nature of the Armenians who lived on the land of their ancestors under the Turkish yoke. The Buxtons’ observations of the reality the peaceful and hard-working Armenians had occurred in allowed them to understand that they were in fact eye-witnesses of the pre-genocide period of the Armenian life in Western Armenia.
