Storyline

This documentary deals with an old, and very sore, subject: the deaths, mostly between 1915 and 1918, of anywhere from several hundred thousand to perhaps 1.5 million Armenian civilians living in the eastern Anatolia region of Turkey during the rule of the "Young Turks" of the Ottoman Empire as World War I engulfed Europe. Featuring interviews with the leading experts in the field such as Pulitzer Prize-winning author Samantha Power and New York Times best-selling author, Peter Balakian, this film features never-before-seen historical footage of the events and key players of one of the greatest untold stories of the 20th century. Written by PBS Ombudsman

True Documentary - How a documentary is suppose to be
24 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Contains the most important part of what every great documentary should: Truth.

I was astonished at the amount of valuable, interesting new facts the documentary presents. Would be a great method for teaching about the Armenian Genocide. Unlike most documentaries, it does Not take you into a sleepy and weary mode.

Again, what I like and value most is the fact that the documentary is portraying truth. Andrew Goldberg did an astonishing job making this documentary.

Another great film about the Armenian Genocide is "Ararat" directed by Atom Egoyan. I love this movie and Stephen Holden from The New York Times says "Ararat" is the year's most thought-provoking film." It would be a sin to disagree. I agree.
