Armenia in Turkish Collective Memory and View from the Left and Right in Guatemala

March 11, 2010

This dual presentation shows that memories are divided according to the observerís bias. In Turkey, the view of the Turks is that the Armenian suffered the consequences of poor choices during World War I while the Armenian defines the mass death of Armenians as a concerted effort by the Turkish state to annihilate their society. In Guatemala, the military believed that they were pacifying a region filled with leftist rebels while Guatemalan Amerindians, the focus of government massacres, interpret these events as genocidal.
