The Armenian Genocide

The Armenian Genocide is the complete story of the first Genocide of the 20th century, when over a million Armenians died at the hands of the Ottoman Turks during World War I – an event that is still denied by Turkey to this day. This film features interviews with the leading experts in the field, such as Pulitzer Prize-winning author Samantha Power and New York Times best-selling author Peter Balakian. The documentary includes never-before-seen historical footage of the events and key players including Rafael Lemkin telling the story of how he invented the word Genocide in the 1940s.
