a bibliographical references: The author breaks the cardinal rule for them, and translates most of the titles of non-English works, some of them not very well, either; thus forcing the student to even greater diligence, since it is under the original titles, of course, that the works will be listed in library catalogs. I have not made a concerted effort to restore those original titles, but whenever in the course of some other enterprise have happened upon one, I've included it in colored type; if a later edition, I've indicated the date as well.
Any links are to the actual complete works online.
b Nansen, F.: This is Fridtjof Nansen, the famous Norwegian polar explorer. To quote remarks made by the Foreign Minister of Armenia at the opening of the Nansen Exhibit at the Council of Europe, June 24, 2004:
"As great as Nansen's interest was in adventure and the sciences, following the first World War, he became deeply engaged in international affairs. And this bore great significance for Armenia and Armenians. He supported the Covenant of the League of Nations and advocated the rights of small nations. He repatriated hundreds of thousands of prisoners of war. He mustered help for millions in Russia dying of famine.
And, he helped establish and lead the office of High Commission for refugees. In that capacity, Nansen tried to solve the problem of Greek refugees and arranged for an exchange of 1.2 million Greeks living on Turkish soil for about half a million Turks living in Greece. Nansen invented the Nansen Passport, a document of identification which was recognized by dozens of governments and which provided an identity to hundreds of thousands of refugees, including great numbers of Armenians rendered homeless by genocide, massacres and deportation, at the turn of the 20th century.
He helped the stateless and homeless whose causes appeared politically intractable. He helped the human victims on both sides of political and military conflicts.
Before the creation of international aid and development programs, he drew up a political, industrial, financial plan for creating a national home for Armenians. He did this at the invitation of the League of Nations. And although the League failed to implement the plan, Armenians and others interested in justice and equal rights believe he accomplished a great deal — by putting on the international agenda the rights of nations to statehood / the rights of peoples to their own homeland."
