Remembering the Armenian Genocide

This week marks the 90th anniversary of the beginning of the Armenian Genocide, the first such mass extermination of the 20th century. Upwards of 1.5 million ethnic Armenians died in the Genocide, for which Turkey steadfastly refuses to accept responsibility. Those with further interest in the subject might wish to read my review of Atom Egoyan's Ararat, an overly complex cinematic treatment of this atrocity.
