We learn history with the hope to never have it repeated, but what happens when certain history is not taught?
Save Kessab is a documentary about the history of the Forgotten Genocide of the Armenians, and its role in todays society. Because of lack of awareness, last year Turkish rebels and Al Qaeda attacked the town of Kessab, Syria. This attack went unnoticed by media across the world, however those who knew of the attack feared of history repeating itself. Recently, Pope Francis publicly acknowledged the Armenian Genocide, making it one step closer to no longer being forgotten. However, to this day, the Turkish Government, the culprits of the Armenian Genocide, denies its existence. April 24th, 2015 marked the 100 year centennial of the Genocide.
