After the killing of her Armenian family and the destruction of her village by the command of the Ottoman government, young Arpi is taken in by an Arab family. Eventually Arpi is forced to flee again, this time to a missionary relief station set up to help the persecuted Armenian Christians. Arpi strives to live up to her mothers cries, You Are Armenian!, as she is forced to deal with starvation, cruelty, and injustice.
Set during the Armenian Genocide of the early twentieth century, They Fell is an epic historical adventure that shines light not only on the horrible abuses that led to the execution of more than one million Armenians but also the courage and valor of the Armenian people to survive.
