The Armenian Holocaust

This week marks the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Holocaust.  You may ask, What is that.  I had not heard of it until today.  Briefly this was an effort by the Ottoman Empire it rid itself of the Armenians by forced exodus and by murder and massacre.  It began on April with the murder of a couple hundred prominent Armenians.  From there it became a general policy which resulted in between one and 1.5 million deaths.  This was Hitler before Hitler.
