Today the Republic of Turkey denies that a "genocide" took place. Only 20 countries officially recognize the event for what it was -- including Italy, France, Canada, and Russia. It is noteworthy that the United States and Israel are not listed among them, even though official documents called it a genocide, and then-U.S. Pres. Ronald Reagan mentioned it in a public address.
|"Like the genocide of the [Christian] Armenians before it, and the genocide of the [Buddhist] Cambodians which followed it -- and like too many other such persecutions of too many other peoples -- the lessons of the [Jewish] Holocaust must never be forgotten..." Pres. R. Reagan|

- VIDEO: Turkish Prof. Ugor Ungor talks about the genocide The Genocide Education Project hosted Prof. Ungor's lecture based on his two recent books, The Making of
Modern Turkey, which addresses how Western Armenia became part of the
Turkish state, and Confiscation and Destruction, about Turkey's
seizure of Armenian Property. There was not a single "genocide" but a series of policies from 1913-1950 as successive
Turkish governments subjected the eastern provinces of the Ottoman
Empire to violent policies of ethnic "homogenization" and forced assimilation.
