In Remembrance of the 1915 Armenian Genocide

In honor and remembrance of the Armenian Genocide by the Ottoman Empire that began in 1915, a truly great 1963 film by Director Elia Kazan, called "America, America". Those of us whose Christian ancestors lived through Ottoman rule and came to America, have much in common with this magnificent chronicle of an immigrant's journey. And the memory of those lives lost, lives on through all of us.

Thank you for remembering my people on this day which is for us a wound that will not heal.

Arius,

We understand, Arius, as Serbs also had a genocide committed against them between 1940-1945 that went unpunished. This event is even less well-known than the genocide against Armenians. It is also a wound that will not heal, because not only did it go unpunished, but 50 years later the same group with the same alliances was allowed and encouraged by the West to come back and finish off the job!
