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

Amazing
18 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this has got to be one of the best documentaries done on the Armenian Genocide. The systematical massacres of the Armenians in the 1915-1920 era were done by the Turkish Ottoman Empire, this was not war, this was not for the good of the Armenians. Since when is moving 1.5 million people into the desert with few or no food or water for the good of the people?...Since when is the minority of an EMPIRE any danger for the government of the country?...It is clear that most of very few of the previous comments were not educated ones, because they seemed to forget the 100'000 Armenians massacred in their villages during the 1875-1878 era in the hands of the ottoman sultan.

Id recommend to watch this movie with an open mind, the movie basically promotes fact, true facts unlike what the Turkish government is doing now promoting falsified facts, to their own people and paying professors in the USA to promote the "idea" of that the genocide never happened.
