Despite the global dimensions of World War I, which daily made news headlines, the scale of the atrocities committed against the Armenian people in the Ottoman Empire resulted in such large numbers of victims that international media coverage of the events became regular news. Samples of stories from 1915 are provided below. Media attention to the plight of the Armenians diminished with the end of the war and went completely silent for the better part of the 20th century. Public attention to the historical significance of the Armenian Genocide resumed only in the last quarter of the century. New research and broader attention to human rights issues has redefined the Armenian Genocide as a precedent to the series of genocides that punctuated the 20th century. The media discourse on the Armenian Genocide has expanded in the 21st century. Samples from a broad range of media sources are provided to inform about the ongoing discussion of the importance of affirming the historical facts surrounding the events of 1915.
