THE US AMBASSADOR HENRY MORGENTHAU AND THE PUBLIC-POLITICAL EFFORTS OF THE ARMENIAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY DURING THE YEARS OF THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE
Henry Morgenthau (November, 1913 - Spring, 1916) was the Ambassador of the United States of America in the Ottoman Empire during the most tragic period of the Armenian history, in the years of World War I. As a diplomat and lawyer, he has devoted his professional and human abilities in favor of the Christians’ elementary rights for life, the defense of their interests and for the mitigation of their sufferings.
From the very beginning of the First World War, the Armenians, who had increased in number in the USA due to various historical circumstances, assembled the entire intercommunal public, intellectual, material, party and other resources to succor the native land and its people in distress for defensive and reconstructive purposes in collaboration with the American diplomatic, political, military, benevolent and other organizations.
