Genocide Commemoration
Genocide Commemoration: http://current.tv/studio/media/1212877

description:

This year marks the 90th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. More than 1.5 million Armenians were massacred by the Ottoman Empire between 1915 and 1923, but modern day Turkey continues to deny its crimes. Even Turkey's most renowned novelist, Orhan Pamuk, is being tried by a Turkish court for talking about the massacres of the Armenians.

California-based broadcast journalist Paul Chaderjian (paul at armenia TV dot am) files this report about the largest Genocide commemoration in the Republic of Armenia, and what Armenians worldwide are doing to prevent more holocausts and genocides like the one taking place now in the Sudan.

4. That was an interesting video.
The Turkish politician calling for Armenians to speak and Turks to listen was great. I'm sure there is room for a two-way street, as well.

BTW, I have a dear friend who's grandparents survived because their Turkish neighbors hid them from the attacks/deportations. :thumbsup:
