Fact of the Day: Armenian Holocaust

From 1915-1923 The Ottoman Empire (and its successor state Turkey) systematically committed genocide against the Armenian people causing about 1.5 million deaths when it was over. Turkey today still heavily denies that this was genocide but 29 countries officially disagree which includes Canada and a good chunk of Europe.

  5. In too many places and times, genocide was thought to be the solution to a problem. When will we learn?
