Talk:Why EU-Turkey Must address Genocide

THE ARTICLE'S 2ND LAST PARAGRAPH TALKS OF THE GENOCIDE BEING LITTLE KNOWN. I CAN CONFIRM THAT IT IS BECOMING LESS WELL KNOWN. TWENTY OR TWENTYFIVE YEARS AGO, I READ SOMETHING, SOMEWHERE, WHICH WAS MY FIRST INTRODUCTION TO THE GENOCIDE. IT INDICATED THAT MANY THOUSANDS WERE MARCHED OFF A CLIFF INTO A RIVER, AS THE AUTHORITIES WOULD NOT SPARE THE AMMUNITION TO SHOOT THEM. RECENTLY I'VE BEEN SURFING THE NET TO GAIN A LITTLE MORE KNOWLEDGE OF THE HISTORY AND GEOGRAPHY OF WHAT IS KNOWN IN THE WEST AS CENTRAL ASIA. DURING ONE OF THESE SESSIONS I SPOTTED THE ARMENIAN STATE ON THE MAP AND REMEMBERING THE EVENT DESCRIBED ABOVE, CONCENTRATED MY EFFORTS ON ARMENIAN HISTORY. I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO FIND ANYTHING OTHER THAN VERY SHORT, GENERALIZED STATEMENTS ALMOST PURELY TO THE EFFECT OF ITS OCCURENCE ONLY. I'M VERY MUCH IN AGREEMENT THAT THE DENIAL ISSUE MUST BE RESOLVED BEFORE TURKEY JOINS THE EU. 90 YEARS IS A LONG TIME, BUT SO IS 60. ARE WE TO FORGET ABOUT THE JEWISH HOLOCAUST BEFORE I'M EIGHTY? I DONT THINK SO! ROBIN RALLING
