Armenian Genocide 1x55

During World War I, the Ottoman Empire carried out one of the largest genocides in the world’s history, killing huge portions of its minority Armenian population. In the end, over one million Armenians had been put to death by execution or by deliberate exposure and starvation. To this day, Turkey denies the genocidal intent of these mass murders. This film, made for PBS by Emmy Award-winning producer Andrew Goldberg, is the complete story of the Armenian Genocide. The film describes not only what happened before, during and since World War I, but also takes a direct look at the genocide denial maintained by Turkey to this day. This program features interviews with acclaimed scholars (including many of Turkish descent) such as Peter Balakian, Samantha Power, Ron Suny, Taner Akcam, Halil Berktay and Israel Charny. It is narrated by Julianna Margulies and includes historical narrations by Ed Harris, Natalie Portman, Laura Linney and Orlando Bloom.
