WASHINGTON, D.C., Dec. 2019 — After the US House of Representatives passed a similar resolution earlier, he U.S. Senate passed a measure officially recognizing the Armenian genocide. The resolution provides “official recognition and remembrance” of the killings of 1.5 million Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman Empire beginning in 1915. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu called the vote a “political show” on social media, adding that “it is not legally binding and it has no validity whatsoever.”
VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis commemorates, during Mass held April 12, 2015, the slaughter of Armenians by Ottoman Turks.  This was the first genocide of the 20th century.  According to the New York Times, “[Pope] Francis said it was a duty of everyone not to forget the ‘senseless slaughter’ of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman Turks from 1915 to 1923.”

The Armenian Genocide: 1915-1923 is a video collection of archival interviews and the documenting of related public events.  Stories of the Muslim Ottoman Turks committing the first case of modern day genocide and ethnic cleansing of up to 1,500,000 Armenian Orthodox Christians by forced death marches and burnings. Also between 1915 and 1922 over 350,000 Greek Orthodox Christians of the Pontos and up to 1,000,000 Greek Orthodox Christians of Asia Minor were exterminated by forced death marches and burnings (Watch The Greek Holocaust: 1915-1922).  “Holocaust” comes from the Greek "olokaftoma," meaning total consumption by fire.

We hope that the survivors who share their memories and stories of unspeakable pain will help the world remember this grotesque crime. As we honor the 100th year anniversary of this often forgotten holocaust, we offer this film as a memorial to the Armenian and Greek victims of Christian genocide.

The DVD (and streaming on TV), A Greek Islands Destination Cooking Class, filmed in Santorini, is my first gift choice as it is one of the most beautiful and educational productions I've seen. If you can't take a trip to the Greek islands this year, this is the next best thing!
