Returning to Armenia

1915  marked the year of the first genocide of the 20th century in which 2 million Armenians perished at the hands of the Ottoman Empire. The survivors were scattered to the four winds. Today, both Turkey and the United States refuse to recognize the genocide. Jacqueline Keoseyan, an American-born member of the Armenian diaspora, became the first in her family to return to the land her people were  expelled from 100 years ago.
