On April 24, 1915, the Ottomans arrested approximately 250 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders, marking what many scholars call the start of the Armenian Genocide. Ninety-five years later, the g-word is still taboo in Turkey and as recently as two years ago, a journalist was fatally shot in Istanbul for talking about it.

Publisher's Summary

On April 24, 1915, the Ottomans arrested approximately 250 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders, marking what many scholars call the start of the Armenian Genocide. Ninety-five years later, the g-word is still taboo in Turkey and as recently as two years ago, a journalist was fatally shot in Istanbul for talking about it. Taner Akcam is a Turkish scholar at the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University and author of A Shameful Act: The Armenian Genocide and the Question of Turkish Responsibility. Rouben Adalian is the Director of the Armenian National Institute. They’ll discuss the archival evidence of what happened, a recent conference they hosted of Turkish and Armenian historians, and how the two nations might be able to move forward.

Then, in this week’s installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, Bob talks with curator Dan Gediman about the essay of writer, director and actor Peter Ustinov. He had a career spanning 60 years on stage and screen. He won two Academy Awards for best supporting actor, as well as three Emmy Awards and a Grammy Award for best children’s recording. Ustinov also served as a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF for many years. [Broadcast Date: April 23, 2010]
