Also, fyi Chiara, what appears to be Russian profiles are upvoting your comments for some reason. It's been happening to a lot of folks around here. Don't click the link at their profile page. Not sure what their purpose is.

Part of it has to do with the fact that the Turkish government has made it illegal for its citizens to acknowledge that it ever happened.

I was unaware of this. I am reasonably well versed in history, certainly more so than most people, and yet this whole thing went unnoticed to me. What kind of world is it that we live in where an atrocity of this size goes unnoticed by the annals of history and time?

I'm always a little suspicious of Turkey's Federal Government pronouncements, because the Turkish Government has never owned up to their Armenian Genocide, unlike Germany, who's Federal Government has mourned over the WWII holocaust.
The Armenian Genocide, also known as the Armenian Holocaust, was the Ottoman government's systematic extermination of 1.5 million Armenians, mostly citizens within the Ottoman Empire and its successor state, the Republic of Turkey.
Target: Armenian population
Attack type: Deportation, genocide, mass murder, starvation
Deaths: c. 1.5 million
Perpetrators: Ottoman Empire (Committee of Union and Progress)
Motive: Anti-Armenian sentiment
The genocide was carried out during and after World War I and implemented in two phases—the wholesale killing of the able-bodied male population through massacre and subjection of army conscripts to forced labour, followed by the deportation of women, children, the elderly, and the infirm on death marches leading to the Syrian Desert. Driven forward by military escorts, the deportees were deprived of food and water and subjected to periodic robbery, rape, and massacre.
