This April 24 will commemorate the 98th day of remembrance since the 1915 events that led to the Armenian Genocide. In the same manner that the Nazis took the Jews, gays, gypsies and other undesirables to death camps, the Young Turks took 1.5 million of their own people to the desert of Der ez Zor to be massacred and die of exposure. The image that haunts me are the long lines of women and children being forced to march into the wilderness until they died from exhaustion.
