Imagine if someone told you the Holocaust never happened or that slavery never existed. Your eyes would roll. The Armenian Genocide is a historical fact yet Turkey, the perpetrator, continues to deny it. This is not the case of a few crackpot individuals or small groups falsifying and fabricating history. This denial has the power, prestige, authority and financial support of the Turkish government. That the coverup persists is a scandal with broad political, cultural and moral implications.
This program features a lively discussion with Robert Jay Lifton, Roger Smith and Peter Balakian.
Robert Jay Lifton is a distinguished author and professor at the John Jay College of the City University of New York.
Roger Smith teaches at William and Mary and is recognised as an expert on the Armenian Genocide.
Peter Balakian teaches at Colgate University and is a well known poet and author.
