Islamic Turkey’s Murder of Christian Armenians | “Architects of Denial”

What was the Armenian Genocide?
The Armenian Genocide(Armenian: Հայոց ցեղասպանություն, Hayots tseghaspanutyun), also known as the Armenian Holocaust, was the Ottoman government’s systematic extermination of 1.5 million Armenians, mostly Ottoman citizens within the Ottoman Empire and its successor state, the Republic of Turkey.

Ravished Armenia (“Auction of Souls”)

Ravished Armenia, also known as Auction of Souls, is a 1919 American silent film based on the autobiographical book Ravished Armenia by Arshaluys Mardiganian, who also played the lead role in the film. The film, which depicts the 1915 Armenian Genocide by the Ottoman Empire from the point of view of Armenian survivor Mardiganian, who plays herself in the film, survives in an incomplete (15 minute clip) form.

“Serzh Sargsyan said he was very much impressed by the film, which has won broad recognition both in the United States and other countries. Based on rich documentary material, it once again re-establishes and reaffirms the truth that negation and denial can lead to new atrocities and that recognition and condemnation are perhaps the most important means to prevent the crimes against humanity.

Geoffrey Clarfield: Armenian genocide was in many ways a rehearsal for the Holocaust

“I think the film is important, since despite the fact that the problem has been talked about too much in the scientific circles, nevertheless there is a lack of documentary films on the subject, and the “Architects of Denial” comes to fill the gap. The parallels between today’s realities and those of 100 years ago are very important. It was exciting for me to think that you wanted to say that denial, no matter how it happens, has many common features. In other words, the perpetrators of a crime know in advance that they should deny it afterwards, confident that denial will work just as it did before. Of course, noteworthy is the parallel with the Armenian Genocide and the events that are taking place in Nagorno-Karabakh,” President Sargsyan said and thanked the producers and all those who have contributed to the film.”
