What is the responsibility of the international community when mass murder and genocide occurs? We will examine the events leading up to the systematic murder of over one million Armenians, the American response as a nation and as a people, the role of justice and judgment in the aftermath of such atrocity, and the legacies today in terms of how we evaluate and seek justice in the United States and around the world.
