Between 1915 and 1922, the Ottoman Turks executed a highly organized campaign to annihilate the Armenian people living in Ottoman Empire (now modern Turkey), systematically murdering 1.5 million men, women, and children. It is regarded as the first modern genocide, yet is remains unrecognized and unknown by many around the world. And this is no accident.

Over the past century, Turkey has undertaken a well-funded and highly sophisticated campaign of historical revisionism through a mix of academic suppression and diplomatic thuggery. Their geopolitical position has allowed them to leverage their version of history over the facts of the genocide, and strong arm the international community to accept their version of the events. With that, the memory of the Armenian Genocide has fallen into the historical black hole of cultural amnesia.

“Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?”

— Adolf Hitler

The Armenian Genocide served as the blueprint for the Holocaust and over a dozen other mass atrocities in the 100 years since. And as a global community, we owe it to the Armenian diaspora to recognize the genocide and to learn from the past, lest the same actions continue to be repeated.

To this day, Turkey denies the genocide ever took place.
