Turkey: Remembering the Turkish Schindlers

Writing on the Huffington Post, Ziya Meral explains why honoring those Turks that saved Armenians during the collapse of the Ottoman Empire is important. Meral argues that recognizing these ‘Turkish Schindlers’ would go some way in defusing tensions between Armenia and Turkey, making the events of 1915 a shared tragedy. For this reason he has launched his own blog-based project to honor those that did save Armenians in what many consider to be the first genocide of the 20th Century at http://www.projectcommonhumanity.net.
