Armenian Genocide Lesson Plan (50 min class)
The Armenian Genocide Today
After the Ottomans surrendered in 1918, the leaders of the Young Turks fled to Germany, which promised not to prosecute them for the genocide. However, a group of Armenian nationalists tracked down and assassinated the leaders of the genocide. Ever since then, the Turkish government has denied that a genocide took place. They argue that the Armenians were an enemy force and their slaughter was necessary during war. Today, Turkey is an important ally of the U.S. and other Western nations, and so their governments have been reluctant to condemn the long-ago killings. In March 2010, a U.S. Congressional panel at last voted to recognize the genocide.
