Trivia

Was first scheduled to be filmed by MGM in 1934, but production was cancelled after pressure from the Turkish government through the U.S. State Department, and threats of boycotts against MGM and Jewish businesses. Plans by MGM to produce the film in 1968-69, and later by Sylvester Stallone in 2006, were also cancelled under pressure from Turkish groups. See more »

"After all, who remembers the massacres of the Armenians?" -ADOLF HITLER
22 June 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

When Hitler ordered his death units to "exterminate without mercy or pity men, women, and children belonging to the Polish-speaking race," he was confident that the world would overlook the mass murder. "After all," he asked rhetorically on the eve of the 1939 invasion of Poland, "who remembers the massacres of the Armenians?"

When Jews of Warsaw Ghetto stood against the Nazis, their source of inspiration was Prague-born Jewish writer Franz Werfel's "THE FORTY DAYS OF MUSA DAGH", the 1933 novel whose graphic depiction of the Armenian plight which later shaped a generation in Israel.

A MUST see movie for every Jew and Armenian and for everyone who wants to create a better world without "Man's inhumanity to man" into the 21st century. ARMENIAN GENOCIDE marked the first genocide of the century we left behind. We all can learn something from this movie.
