By Miriam Neustadt '11From 1915 to 1918, the Ottoman Empire, today known as Turkey, brutally and systematically murdered 1.5 million Armenian Christians. The event was considered quite successful. In fact, predecessors like Adolf Hitler followed the model of the Ottoman government when organizing his Holocaust during WWII. Considered the first modern genocide, the Armenian Genocide still goes formally unrecognized in Turkey and the United States. How can such atrocity go unrecognized after ninety years?In fall 2008, members of the Introduction to Peace and Conflict Studies course at Colgate University embarked on a collaborative project to understand and interrogate 20th century histories of war and violence, as well as its resolutions. As part of this endeavor, students and faculty analyze and disseminate information about marginalized conflicts.References: http://www.colgate.edu/academics/departments-and-programs/peace-and-conflict-studies/podcast-serieshttp://www.colgate.edu/pconIf you like what you see, subscribe to our channel.Colgate University (http://colgate.edu) is a highly selective residential liberal arts institution distinguished by academic excellence, interdisciplinary inquiry, and increasing student digital IQ.
