Armenian Genocide Centennial Media Coverage Worldwide

April 22, 2015

After Pope Francis spoke about the Armenian Genocide during his mass at the Vatican, and Kim Kardashian paid homage to her Armenian ancestors and laid a wreath at the Genocide Memorial in Yerevan, the world started remembering the Armenians and what happened in 1915 in Ottoman Turkey.

Here are some of the news stories from around the world:

No, dear prime minister, don’t touch the Armenians, protect them

March 18, 2010

As I interview adult children of Armenian Genocide survivors, I am struck by how many of them tell me their parents spoke Turkish and listened to Turkish music at home. Some of the children (mostly American born) also know at least a few Turkish words and sayings. I am amused by the number of Armenians who admit that they secretly like to dine at Turkish restaurants “because it is our food, too”.

In some ways, Armenians coming from Turkey have more of a connection to Turkey than to present-day Armenia, because what is now Turkey was their ancestral homeland. Ninety-five years ago, Armenians lived side-by-side with Turks and still counted some of their Turkish neighbors as friends. Yet, they knew to always be on their guard, because ‘every 20 years’ there would be massacres—the Turkish authorities regarded Armenians as giavours (infidels or animals). Western minds, including many Turks today, can’t conceive of the indignities Armenians endured under the rule of the Ottoman Turks.
