A Video About Armenian Women During the Genocide

There’s so much to write about these days, but I’ve been trying to get some off-line things done. I think I will be putting up a few very short posts just to share some of the things that have been kicking around in my head. Unfortunately, I might not have as much time to elaborate on them as I’d like.

The other day, I was looking through some documentaries with no particular subject in mind other than “history.” I came across this one, produced by Al Jazeera English in 2013, about what happened to some of the women from Armenian communities in Turkey during the Genocide of 1915. Since sexual violence towards women is common during wars and periods of social unrest, it is unsurprising to learn it was a feature of the Armenian Genocide, still I had never heard about it specifically.

    It is sad how people still pretend to ignore the atrocities that were done on Armenians and refuse to term it as genocide.
    Great post 🙂
