there has been no actual proof that there as a genocide. I'm not saying that the atrocities your family witnessed iddnt happen, however, there have been mass graves of turks found in armenian land. It was a civil war, and alot of turks have family who have similar experiences involving armenians. I'm not justifying the slaughter of armenians, or turks, i'm just saying there was mutual destruction.
Uhmmm... I'm not Turkish, I've never been there but I see some photos about Turkey. They are lovely! 2 months ago, I chatted with a Turkish guy. But what a pity, I lost my password of this nick and never meet him again. He is friendly. So I think Turkish people are kind and friendly. I hope I'm right! If I had a chance, I would come to Istanbul! I watched a video about this city. It's really a wonderful one! Very nice and peaceful!

I'm sorry, but I disagree entirely. There are hundreds of documented accounts of the Turkish massacres of Armenians. As for your contention that attacks between the two peoples were mutual and that it amounted to a "civil war", I believe that to be utterly false as well. I would be curious to know how there could mass graves of Turks in Armenia, considering that the present state of Armenia was Russian/Soviet territory at the time. The Armenians who were killed resided almost entirely in present-day Turkey.

I don't mean to come off as accusatory, but you sound like someone who's accepted the weak assertions of the Turkish government. Although many Western nations have not offcially recognized (or pressured the Turkish goverment to recognize) the genocide for political reasons, it is well understood by the academic community outside of Turkey that the attempted genocide did indeed occur.

There was no sovereign Armenian state at the time in question, therefore I don't know what "archives" you refer to. And as for the Turkish government, I don't doubt that they have no records of an attempted genocide. Why would they store incriminating documents? The fact is that the Turkish massacres of Armenians were witnessed extensively by Americans, Germans, and Russians.

One way or another there is a conspiracy here. One side is lying, be it the Turkish goverment, or a plethora of scholars, researchers, and witnesses around the world.

"I am confident that the whole history of the human race contains no such horrible episode as this. The great massacres and persecutions of the past seem almost insignificant when compared to the sufferings of the Armenian race in 1915." -- Henry Morgenthau, Sr. US Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire
I didn't want to hijack this thread, so I started a new one regarding the truth of the Armenian genocide in the 'Controversial subjects' forum. I would suggest that anyone who wishes to continue this debate do so over there.

Not massacre.Armenians rebeled during The World War 1.They busted to turkish villages.Ottoman Empire governments took a decision about Armenians for security of the east Anatolian security..The decision was "Migration".Armenians required migrate to Syria..Migration was started by Ottoman government.There were diffucult winter condition,epidemic illnesses.So many Armenian people died during the migration.It was a tragedy but not genocide.Ottoman goverment has never taken decision about "Genocide"....

I think governments and people dont have to argue about it and only Historians research "what happened in 1915"..Because only They're neutral..
