History,  Turkey

A perhaps not-so-small good thing

The Associated Press reports:

In Turkey, state television on Thursday broadcast the epic French documentary “Shoah,” about the mass murder of Jews under the German Nazi regime. It was the first time the film has been aired on public television in a predominantly Muslim country.

“It is a historical event,” filmmaker Claude Lanzmann, 87, said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press from his home in Paris. “It is extremely important that it is being shown in a Muslim country.”

Dare we hope that this may be a small step toward facing up to another genocide?
