Keller @ Large: How A Big Lie Persists

- BOSTON (CBS) – The facts are not in serious dispute. Between 1915 and 1923 the Ottoman Empire, precursor to today’s Republic of Turkey, systematically exterminated 1.5 million Armenians, a precursor to the Holocaust which is considered the modern world’s first act of genocide, the deliberate mass killing of a targeted group. The documentary evidence is overwhelming – photos, eyewitness accounts, the journalism of the time

Trump doesn’t call killing of Armenians a genocide

- WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is recalling the death and suffering of more than 1 million Armenians during the final years of the Ottoman Empire, without describing it as genocide. Such a declaration would anger Turkey, whose cooperation Trump seeks in Syria. Trump says in a statement that the World War I-era killing of Armenians represents one of the 20th century’s worst mass atrocities, and a ‘‘dark chapter’’ in history

Photos: Remembering the 'first genocide of the 20th century'

- The killings of up to 1.5 million Armenians in Ottoman Turkey during and after World War I is considered by genocide scholars to have been the first genocide of the 20th century. Turkey denies a genocide occurred and argues the death toll has been exaggerated and resulted from civil unrest and war, not policy. The beginning of the Armenian Genocide is often considered April 24, 2015, when Turkish soldiers killed 235 Armenian intellectuals and political leaders, accusing them of helping the invading Russians during World War I

‘The Promise’ falls flat

- History is rife with horrific events that somehow manage to demonstrate true humanity and heroism. Many of these events are underreported, underrepresented and misunderstood, such as the Armenian Holocaust — the systemic extermination of 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman Empire, starting in 1915. Knowledge of this genocide isn’t universal, and the Republic of Turkey still refuses to acknowledge it. Cinema has always been a useful tool for creating understanding and empathy in mass audiences, and the epic melodrama “The Promise,” based on these events, seeks to remedy popular understanding of the horror
