Not to remember the suffering of the victims is, above all, a failure of humanity and compassion on our part—a lack of respect and care for fellow humans who have fallen victim to the ultimate outrage against justice, the death of a people. We do not ordinarily think of the dead as having rights, but there is at least one they possess: the right to have the world ‘‘hear and learn the truth about the circumstances of their death.’’1 This is the one right that, ninety years later, can still be restored to them, and surely we can do no less...(from The Significance of the Armenian Genocide after Ninety Years by Roger W.
