On 24 April 1915, the indigenous Christian population of Ottoman Turkey—the Armenians, but also the Assyrians and Greeks—were targeted for elimination from their homeland through forced deportations and massacres, in the first genocide of the 20th Century.

The atrocities became a model for future genocidal regimes, including the Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler.

100 years later, how does recognition of the genocide help to heal a persecuted and scattered nation?

Dr. Maria Armoudian is a lecturer at the University of Auckland, the author of <em>Kill the Messenger: The Media’s Role in the Fate of the World</em>, and the host and producer of the syndicated radio program, <em>The Scholars’ Circle</em>. She has served as an environmental commissioner for the City of Los Angeles and worked for the California State Legislature.
