Australian photographer Judith Crispin is joined by four internationally renowned historians in shedding light on the destruction of Armenian cultural heritage over the last century, culminating in the destruction of one of the world's oldest Christian cemeteries, a field of Armenian cross-stones at Julfa, by Azerbaijani military forces. The book shows the deliberate removal and abandonment of any Armenian association within Turkish territories, how world bodies have accepted the neglect and attrition, and who has deliberately misattributed the rich Armenian heritage to redevelop their own cultural identity.
