In 1992, Turkey issued a long list of restrictions against the Armenian Church in Istanbul, designed to guarantee its demise. In 1995, Turks savagely rioted against Armenians in Baku. The Times reported that a grandmother and her grandchild were put in a bag, ignited on fire, and thrown out of a high-rise apartment building.
The latest oppressive act occurred in Istanbul in 2007, when Hrant Dink, a highly respected Turkish-Armenian editor, journalist and columnist, was assassinated on the street near his office. Dink repeatedly used the term genocide in his writings. He had been advocating the Turkish government to admit to the genocide as a start of a healing process with Armenians.
I would suggest that most Armenians would like to forget the past and concentrate on the future, but the aggressiveness of the Turkish government in denying such a horrific event prevents that. The Japanese government, since the end of World War II in 1945, has white-washed references to atrocities committed by Japanese troops in history school books.
