Armenian Genocide
The ‘Death Warrant’

BBC reporter travels to Turkey, formerly part of the Ottoman Empire, to get facts and opinions from Turkish natives and experts that reflect how they feel about the Armenian Genocide that occurred in 1915. Doctor Yusuf Halacoglu, the president of the Turkish Historical Society, believes that the event cannot be categorized as a genocide because the Ottoman Empire had no explicit intentions of destroying the entire Armenian race. Another professor comments on a document from that time that claims the deportation and massacre of the Armenians had only to do with state security during World War I. Various citizens are also asked about what they have learned about the tragedy as they were growing up in Turkey. Along with this, methods and tactics that the Ottomans used to carry out the deportation of the Armenians are explained in this video.
