Genocide of any sort is an extremely sensitive topic that some even consider taboo and avoid touching the subject altogether. However, one should never turn a blind eye to the atrocities of the past with an excuse that what happened years ago should be left “where it belongs” – in the dusty pages of history. Adopting such an attitude poses a risk of repeating the same mistakes our ancestors did.
