Phew! This is a bit sombre, Bill.
Bill Phillips: It was a holocaust despite the mealy mouthed words that are used by politicians not wanting to offend the Turkish government who are still in denial

Il ne faut pas oublier ces évènements. La statue est très belle.
Bill Phillips: No we must not. It is one of the reasons why I am sad about the vote to leave the EU. We need Europe to be strong and peaceful not fragmented like it was for so long
A fine memorial for this sad event Bill!
Bill Phillips: It was a Holocust Richard and deserves to be remembered as such

Oh, this is very fine - I have much sympathy with the Armenians ...
Bill Phillips: It has been largely ignored and treated as a tragedy.
The pray you said here for England didn't work and no you can't have a rematch.
Bill Phillips: It was a pathetic display by England and no real surprise

Strewth - the Pope got into a spot of bother about mentioning this the other day..
Bill Phillips: It has been ignored for a long time or referred to as a tragedy. It was articles by Robert Fisk that first made me aware of what was the first Holocaust

I have an Armenian friend who lost ancestors in this, Bill. It prompted me to buy a book on what I think is little known
Bill Phillips: Robert Fisk of the Independent has written a lot about it. The world's leaders fob it off as a "tragedy"

I read the famous novel by Franz Werfel, The Forty Days of Musa Dagh: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Forty_Days_of_Musa_Dagh - the first holocaust in the 20th century, ignored by the Turks till today - our country has some conflicts with Erdogan, also because of our Armenian resolution in the Bundestag.
I had once an Armenian friend in Jerusalem, Kevork= George.
Bill Phillips: It was good when you country spoke out Philine.

The languages are Armenian, Welsh and English.

A fine tribute to this appalling instance of man's inhumanity to man.
Bill Phillips: If only the Turkish government would admit it happened
This is not something I was aware of, I have now read up about it, how dreadful. Sadly, whilst the average Turkish man in the street might be as amenable as you and I, Turkey isn't a country I personally would want us to have much to do with.
Bill Phillips: The turkish government leaves a lot to be desired.

A sombre reminder of such an awful event.
Bill Phillips: One of many from the first world war
An interesting place for such a memorial!
Bill Phillips: I was surprised I must confess but applaud them for having it there

That's news to me, Bill. Philine, as usual, has added more to it. It's a fine tribute.
Bill Phillips: As you would expect her to.
Very sad, but very well done.
Bill Phillips: It is a memorial to a terrible event
