The Diocese wishes to alert the public that the long-running CBS news
program 60 Minutes will air a segment on the Armenian Genocide during its
broadcast of Sunday, February 28, at 7 p.m. (EST). (The scheduling information
comes via the official website of CBS News, www.cbsnews.com; please consult your
local listings for broadcast times.)
The segment will feature an interview with Prof. Peter Balakian, author of
Black Dog of Fate and The Burning Tigris, and co-translator/editor of Armenian
Golgotha. Reporting the story is senior correspondent Bob Simon, whose recent 60
Minutes work includes a segment on the Greek Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch of
Constantinople.

A description of the Armenian Genocide segment, posted on the CBS News
website, reads: "The Armenians call it their holocaust - the 1915 forced
deportation and massacre of more than a million Armenians by the Turks. But the
Turks and our own government have refused to call it genocide."

I saw that.  Obama has backed down on his election promise to keep the Armenian Genocide in the focal point, but never mentioned it when he visited Turkey.  Seeing the cave that was used as a type of gas chamber was heart breaking.

Memory Eternal for all the Armenian, Syrian, Greek and Assyrian Christians whose lives were lost in the Genocide.
