Using the archives of the League of Nations and first-person memoirs of trafficked children, this chapter explores the phenomenon of humanitarian rescue and the often paradoxical outcomes of that effort. It compares European and Ottoman attitudes toward the reclamation of children and young women who were transferred during the Armenian genocide and explores what this can tell us about competing ideas of shared humanity, race, and the relationship between colonialism and humanitarianism.
