You Rejoice My Heart
This book is based on a quest made by the author to find Turkey's hidden Armenians, those who survived the Armenain Genocide of 1915 and remained in Turkey. Yalcin is a very sympathetic observer, which maked his account all the more powerful. His account finds crypto-Armenians and donmes, people who survived discrimination and anti-Armenian riots in Istanbul, as well as others who eloped with Muslim Turks. You Rejoice My Heart is probably the first critical attempt to look at the social history of Armenians in modern Turkey.
