Deli Sarkis: The Scars He Carried

A Daughter Confronts the Armenian Genocide and Tells Her Father's Story

By Ellen Sarkisian Chesnut

Two journeys, two lifetimes, one incredible story

Deli Sarkis: The Scars He Carried tells the story of Deli Sarkis, an Armenian who witnessed first-hand the atrocities of the Armenian Genocide of 1915–1923. The book is a tale of two journeys: the author’s journey to discover the facts, places, and people in order to write her father’s story, and her father’s journey from near death to survival. Deli Sarkis’s physical and emotional scars were a constant reminder of the horrifying times he endured and the loss of so many he loved.

Filled with photographs of the people and places that played roles in Deli Sarkis’s life, as well as maps that outline the villages, cities, and landmarks described in the book, Deli Sarkis: The Scars He Carried provides readers with a sobering recollection of a tragic time in Armenian history. Years ago, Ellen’s father told her, “Tell my story.” His wish has finally come to fruition.

Ellen Sarkisian Chesnut taught history, English and visual arts in the San Francisco Unified School District for many years. She is a published author of non-fiction articles found in ARARAT Quarterly. The author is also a practicing artist of many years specializing in printmaking, multi-media and watercolor. Her work is in many private collections.
