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

So here's the deal guys.
22 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For the many 10s and 100s of people who wrote bad reviews they get deleted because there are Armenian nationalists patrolling these boards and reporting the reviews as "racism" or some other nonsense.

That's why there are no bad reviews because they get reported over and over by obsessed nationalists. It's like a cult.

This is very clearly a propaganda movie made for nationalists. The nationalists will try to get others to watch it too because they have no other way of expressing their hatred of the Turks except through this kind of anti-Turkish propaganda.

Everyone forgets the hundreds of thousands of Turks that were killed by Armenians and this type of documentary is meant to white wash all that and using hyperbole and lies they promote these kinds of documentaries that are based entirely on word-of-mouth story-telling by nationalist propagandists.
