Primary Source Resource

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

This website is a German repository of Middle East and North African primary source documents and secondary literature journals.  The journals are mostly in German, but many of the primary sources are in English — including one that I found about “Asiatic Turkey” (i.e. Anatolian Ottoman Empire) in 1896, alleging forced conversions of Armenians to Islam.  Give this website a look if you want your paper to be about 19th-20th history — some of the primary sources look quite useful.
