Storyline

Though both the historical and modern-day persecution of Armenians and other Christians is relatively uncovered in the mainstream media and not on the radar of many average Americans, it is a subject that has gotten far more attention in recent years. It was during and after World War I that the Ottoman Empire carried out the systematic mass murder of 1.5 million Christian Armenian citizens, but also 950,000 Greek and 750,000 Assyrian Christians. To this day, the Armenian people are persecuted in the Middle East for their beliefs - and many are kept from their true home. Turkey, which is the successor state to the Ottoman Empire, still denies the extent and the systematic nature of the atrocities and doesn't use the word genocide for these well-documented events. Other governments officially deny the Armenian Genocide as well because of political pressure by their ally Turkey. "Architects of Denial" not only digs into the persecution of Armenians and other Christians in the Middle ...

Great film
5 October 2017 | by arsenmk-06963See all my reviews

If you don't know about Armenian Genocide, this is the fastest way to get a pretty good idea about it, so watch it. If you know about it, and you know it happened, then this will just bring up some memories and also some tears, so you choose. If you know about it, but you think it had never happened, then most likely you're from Azerbaijan or Turkey, and you have to watch this.

For more serious people interested in world history, this is a really good collection of facts expressed by famous as well as ordinary people who witnessed or who heard the stories from witnesses. One cannot remain indifferent while watching this film and imagining what really happened, what can still happen if people keep on caring only about money.
