The Armenian Genocide

April 24, 1915 marks the beginning of the Armenian Genocide. It took place only 100 years ago, and until today Turkey refuses to even admit it ever happened.

A lot has been written and said about the event. Here I list with a few references that can be accessed via the Internet, composed of a list or articles and videos.

(1) PBS documentary "The Armenian Genocide." A very good overview following the historical development, with causes and consequences.

(2) A 2013 "60 Minutes" segment. "the remains of the Armenians are so prevalent in the area that all you need to do is scratch the sand along the river banks and you will find pieces of human bones that have been there for 98 years."

(3) Documentary "1915 AGHET"

(4) "Ravished Armenia" ("Auction of Souls") is a silent movie shot in 1919 in Hollywood about the Armenian Genocide, based on a book written by a Genocide survivor. A large portion of the movie was lost but this 20 minute-long clip was recovered.
