This study aims to analyze a children's and youth literature book taught as part of the so-called Armenian genocide teaching guidelines and curricula on the theme of "relocation, migration and the events of 1915". Rather than arguing for or against a certain historical view, it aims to perform an overall analysis of a literary work based on Reader- Response Theory.
