In honor of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, Devil’s Due Entertainment is publishing a graphic novel “Operation Nemesis: A Story of Genocide & Revenge” with major media coverage planned.
The novel is based on the true story of Soghomon Tehlirian, a lone man who in 1921 killed the former leader of Turkey on the streets of Berlin and walked away a free man. Why? Because the murdered man Talat Pasha was the architect of a nationwide massacre of over one and a half million people. The assassination was part of a secret operation named after the Greek goddess of divine retribution, Nemesis.
Operation Nemesis was a covert operation by the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (Dashnaktsutyun) carried out from 1920 to 1922, during which a number of former Ottoman political and military figures were assassinated for their role in the Armenian Genocide. The secret operation was headed by Armen Garo, Aaron Sachaklian and Shahan Natalie.
After the end of World War I, the Ottoman military tribunal condemned to death the principal Young Turk leaders responsible for planning and execution of the Armenian Genocide. However at the conclusion of the trials the condemned were freed. They fled to European capitals living under assumed names. In the early 1920s, the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) at their 9th World Congress held in Yerevan approved a secret resolution called The Special Mission (Haduk Gordz) to punish the main perpetrators of the Armenian Genocide. Between 1920-1922 the perpetrators were located and assassinated by the Armenian avengers. The graphic novel follows the story of Soghomon Tehlirian who killing the main architect of the Armenian Genocide, Talat Pasha.
