Resources For the Ignorant

Sevgi Ertan '98, the author of the letter ["Genocide Denied," April 28] denying the Turkish slaughter of 2 million Armenians in the World War I era, needs to review that segment of history. For a more objective account of the events, I encourage looking to, at least, these sources: the United Nations' recognition of this as an act of genocide in 1986 and R. Rummel's Death by Government. If Ertan is still convinced of Turkey's claimed innocence, perhaps a visit to the Armenian Cultural and Educational Center, located just outside of Boston in Watertown, is in order.
