Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As a teen, I read a book called The Forty Days of Musa Dagh, by Franz Werfel, about Armenians withstanding a Turkish seige. My family knew some Armenians, and somehow that book found its way onto my reading shelf. It was the first time I had ever heard of that part of modern history, and it stayed with me a long time.

But when I googled just now for Musa Dagh, I found a number of references and also some that seem to fall into the category of holocaust deniers. Read some of the links, see for yourselves. Strong emotions on both sides.
