Dr. Umut Özsu comments in today’s Toronto Star: Now is time to recognize the Armenian genocide.
As the article in the Toronto Star begins:
As an adolescent, I shared a close bond with my Turkish grandmother. Born to a large family in an impoverished village in western Anatolia, she had come of age during the early years of the Republic of Turkey, established in 1923 as a secular nation-state on the ruins of the Ottoman Empire.
While sociable and loquacious, my grandmother could be touchy on certain matters. Few matters, though, disturbed her as much as the Armenian genocide.
