    I have known about it for years because I live in a city with a large Armenian population and have many Armenian friends.

    Aren't we, also, forgetting about the Ukrainian genocide at the hands of Stalin....or the Spaniard one on the America(s)?

    No. Not forgetting. This thread is about the Armenian holocaust.

    Start a hundred other threads to "not forget" the hundred (or more) other holocausts in the last few centuries and currently perhaps?

    Perhaps the million plus lives being murdered every year here in the usa ?

    See, I believe any / all venues are OK to talk about genocides.

    By definition, over A million a year has been and a half-million plus each year is genocide - except for a heart that is colder and more lifeless than hell!
    "Total abortions fell below 1 million for the first time in 2013 count and have continued downward to 862,320 in the most recent figures for 2017."
    genocide:"The United Nations Genocide Convention, which was established in 1948, defines genocide as "acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such" including the killing of its members, causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group, deliberately imposing living conditions that seek to "bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part", preventing births. "

    lol - how about condoms, which are commonly used to prevent births. Is each use thereof considered to be part of a genocide?

    Back to the OP, I never heard a thing about the Armenian Holocaust/Genocide in any high school or college history class. And as an adult, I guess I chose by default not to do any research about it.

    It looks as if by definition , if they were forced to be used (like in China's policies not so long ago), yes, it would be considered genocide along with abortions and also chemically induced miscarriages from drugs given to women that cause more miscarriages than there are live births.
    Wouldn'y you agree that killing these babies is genocide (not just being wrong for killing) when carried out on over a half million babies ? >

    Religion is the major issue.

    Only thing I know about the Albanians were the wars in the Balkans and what happend after that war.

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...at-was-yugoslavia-warring-pieces-1539305.html

    ESTIMATES vary of the death toll in 13 months of civil war in what was Yugoslavia, but it certainly runs into many thousands, making the conflict the most violent in Europe since the Second World War. The immediate origins of the war lie in the collapse of the post-1945 Communist order and subsequent clashes between a variety of militant nationalisms. But the deeper roots lie far back in history.

    The main rivals are the Serbs and Croats, two Slavic peoples with similar languages - though Serbian is written in Cyrillic and Croatian in Latin script - but whose histories are very different.
