Featuring Julian Assange, George Clooney and brutal witness accounts, this film explores the controversy surrounding the Armenian genocide and persecution of Middle East Christians including the US politicians who deny it even took place.
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.

This is MUST WATCH documentary by any human being who cares or doesn't care about genocides, historians and politicians, educators and new learners, people of different age groups and races, and etc. The movie brilliantly shows parallel between several genocides including and not limited to Armenian Genocide 1915, Holocaust 1941-1945, and Armenian massacres in Azerbaijan in 1990.
