9. Since it is still talked about in the Middle East it is very important
They still recall the Ottoman's even if when I was in College more students had never heard of it. I had a teacher from Iran and he could not get over it. Students getting out of college who had not heard of the Ottoman Empire. I had gone to school and taken world history 20 years before these kids so my teacher and I used to have a lot of private talks. One had to know a little of WW1 to know about WW2 I guess the school dept. figured. By the way I lived in Saudi Arabia and every day people still talk of what happened with the Ottomans. Some one who took over their country. I guess other people pushing you around in your own country makes people mad.
