America and the Armenian Genocide
February 15, 2018 @ 12:00 am
Starting in 1915, the Ottoman Empire killed up to 1.5 million Armenians and evicted hundreds of thousands of others from their homes in an act of genocide that would later inspire Adolf Hitler’s Holocaust in Europe. The Dole Archives Archival Fellow for Armenian Advocacy, author and journalist Michael Bobelian leads an examination of the U.S. 20th-century response to the “forgotten genocide” and highlights Sen. Bob Dole’s leadership as an advocate for Armenia and Armenian-Americans.
