Storyline

Though both the historical and modern-day persecution of Armenians and other Christians is relatively uncovered in the mainstream media and not on the radar of many average Americans, it is a subject that has gotten far more attention in recent years. It was during and after World War I that the Ottoman Empire carried out the systematic mass murder of 1.5 million Christian Armenian citizens, but also 950,000 Greek and 750,000 Assyrian Christians. To this day, the Armenian people are persecuted in the Middle East for their beliefs - and many are kept from their true home. Turkey, which is the successor state to the Ottoman Empire, still denies the extent and the systematic nature of the atrocities and doesn't use the word genocide for these well-documented events. Other governments officially deny the Armenian Genocide as well because of political pressure by their ally Turkey. "Architects of Denial" not only digs into the persecution of Armenians and other Christians in the Middle ...

Armenian Genocide
6 October 2017 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I live in Los Angeles and I have lots of Armenian friends so I saw a lotto documentaries about this subject but this one is the best so far. It's even better then the movie The Promise. It presents the problem so well and the whole history of it. My Armenian friends that I went with to see it were very impressed and said that they enjoyed a lot. So if you are Armenian this is the documentary for you. And if you are not Armenian this is a good documentary to go and watch to learn about this people.
