Over 85 years have passed since the Armenian Genocide of 1915, but the families of those that endured this event have not forgotten about this tremendous tragedy. This website, designed in conjunction with a recent documentary, tells some of the stories from that time, and it also offers an overview of Armenian life in the Ottoman Empire before and during 1915. First-time users will want to start by viewing the 8-minute video that provides a comprehensive introduction to these events. After viewing this film, visitors can view an interactive section that talks about Armenian life in Turkey. Overall, the website is visually engaging, and one can imagine that it could be well-suited for use in the classroom as part of a discussion on cultural geography.
