The Armenian Journey - A Story Of An Armenian Genocide 1915 GenocidalTurks

This finally hit mainstream news today after the Pope declared the Armenian Genocide the first of the 20th century.  This was largely due to the fact that Armenia was a Christian nation living in the confines of a dying Ottoman (Turkish) empire.  These days between the 12th and 15th of April are generally recognized as the beginning of the slaughter, and I shall do my best to remember our brothers and sisters in Christ who perished at the hands of the Turks while the world watched and did nothing 100 years ago.

Perhaps what is more shocking is that Turkey still denies it to this day, and because the U.S. needs Turkey to continue to supply ISIS and their attempted overthrow of Syria in the Middle East, the U.S.also refuses to acknowledge what an entire nation of Christians suffered.  

The Armenian Journey - A Story Of an Armenian Genocide /Documentary Film /"The Armenian Journey: From Despair to Hope in Rhode Island," a film by The Genocide Education Project (GenEd), tells the story of Armenian Genocide survivor Margaret Garabedian Der Manuelian, told through the narrative voice of her great-granddaughter, 21 year old Dalita Getzoyan. The film was funded by a grant from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities and designed to support educators in the region and beyond.
