Product Description
Student read and analyze an account of the forced evacuations and massacres of the Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman Empire during and after World War 1 and answer 14 questions--some relate to images, some relate to a telegram from Ambassador Morgenthau, and others have students connect the material to the Holocaust and other genocides. The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub! At the bottom of the last page, there is a link to a National Geographic article for students to further explore the Armenian Genocide from today's point of view from Armenia, Turkey, and the international community.

Sample questions include:
--Explain why the Turks saw the Armenians as a "problem."
--What type of mentality might those ox cart drivers have had, and why?
--Is there a way you can think of that the Armenians could have resisted or fought back? Explain your thought process fully.
--Using prior knowledge and context clues, how would you explain the difference between a perpetrator, bystander, and rescuer? Why do you think more often than not people are bystanders? Even if a Turk didn't fear the Armenians, why might that Turk have chosen to partake in the round ups and act as a perpetrator instead of a rescuer? What kind of mental and emotional fortitude does it take to be a rescuer?
