The caliph- excuse me, the PM Erdogan of Turkey, doesn't want the Armenian Genocide remembered

or talked about; tough shit, clown.
Indeed, evidence has been overwhelming. U.S. Senate Resolution 359 from 1920 heard testimony that included evidence of “[m]utilation, violation, torture, and death [which] have left their haunting memories in a hundred beautiful Armenian valleys, and the traveler in that region is seldom free from the evidence of this most colossal crime of all the ages.” In her memoir, Ravished Armenia, Aurora Mardiganian described being raped and thrown into a harem (which agrees with Islam’s rules of war). Unlike thousands of other Armenian girls who were discarded after being defiled, she managed to escape. In the city of Malatia, she saw 16 Christian girls crucified: “Each girl had been nailed alive upon her cross, spikes through her feet and hands, only their hair blown by the wind, covered their bodies.” Such scenes were portrayed in the 1919 documentary film Auction of Souls, some of which is based on Mardiganian’s memoirs.
And more.  And more.

The Turks should be especially embarrassed by the Armenian Genocide in that, unlike Nazi Germany, there was never clear break with the government and the officials that set the genocide in motion. They overthrew the Sultan and were forced to give up much of their empire, but the "new" Turkey included many of the same faces, and their new President, Kemal Ataturk, may have led troops in the genocide.
