Banned in Turkey?
15 January 2013 | by hmscollingwood-1See all my reviews

A warning against complacency in a multi-ethnic civilisation. As with all good, truthful documentaries - not appearing in the area of the incident at a local cinema any time soon. A parallel with the much larger and more systematic Armenian slaughter before and during WW1, also by the Turks. Dr Niall Ferguson, in the 20th century history series 'The War of the World' cites this little-known (unless you happen to be Greek) ethnic cleansing , as an example of murderous social policy which fed on primitive, racist and religious prejudice. A similar holocaust happened in Sabra and Shatila Palestinian refugee camps, in September 1982 It behoves us all to acquire a library of such historical narratives in order to appreciate the origins of most of the world's present national, religious and tribal conflicts, and see beyond ignorant political expediency. The empire builders of the world often use such base differences, and ordinary people's naivety, to artificially foment conflict in order to divide and rule. The lessons of history are that new generations never learn from the lessons of history.
