I first learned about the Armenian Genocide nearly three years ago from an Armenian professor at my university. I mostly felt disturbed—not only by the tragedy, but by the fact that I was 20-years-old at the time and was just now learning about it. How could such an event be omitted from my primary education? How could we study the Holocaust so much, yet neglect the Armenian Genocide?
