Radio Interview on the Genocide

Massachusetts National Public Radio Interview on the Armenian Genocide. "Was it Genocide?" Story aired: Tuesday, December 13, 2005.

When the plaintiff Bill Schechter, teacher of American history at Lincoln-Sudbury High School in Massachusetts, is asked in the interview whether he would include "another point of view" on the Holocaust, he says "No." Well Mr. Schechter is a Jew and, of course, Holocaust denial is unacceptable for him and does not fall under the "freedom of speech." But when it comes to the Armenian genocide, well, Mr. Schechter does not care a lot….

Mr. Schechter, joined by a student and by the Turkish organizations of America, is arguing that the "Turkish perspective" on the Armenian genocide should be included in American textbooks.
