The Armenian Genocide a was the Ottoman government's systematic extermination of its minority Armenian subjects from their historic homeland within the territory constituting the present-day Republic of Turkey. The starting date is conventionally held to be 24 April 1915, the day Ottoman authorities rounded up and arrested some 250 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders in Constantinople. The genocide was carried out during and after World War I and implemented in two phases: the wholesale killing of the able-bodied male population through massacre and subjection of army conscripts to forced labour, followed by the deportation of women, children, the elderly and infirm on death marches leading to the Syrian desert.   Tonite we will hear from Author Virginia Apelian who wrote the book "Musa Dagh Girl, Daughter of Armenian Survivors." Apelian’s story tells of deportation, refugee camps, and the historical background of the Armenians. The book can be found here. http://www.parable.com/i.Musa-Dagh-Girl-Apelian-Virginia-Matosian.9781612155517Hosts Doreen Finkle and Reuben Torres  Show sponsored by studentsforabetterfuture.com
