At the very top of the pyramidal societal structure was the Sultan, absolute commander of all, and executor of decisions concerning politics and ...

  • Armenian Genocide - 1,516 words

FORGOTTEN The Armenian genocide is a hidden, almost lost part of world history, pretty much eclipsed by the more publicized genocide of the twentieth century, the Holocaust. The question is why. I could take a poll of this room and I am willing to bet that 95 ...
