I had a few Armenian friends, and only heard about it from them / their parents back in the 90’s. Honestly now even post System of a Down / movies about it, you rarely hear it mentioned?

Pretty crazy that all that happened in such a short time span- the Armenian Genocide, the Holodomor, the Holocaust.

I read Forgotten Fire when I was in the 8th grade and it left a very long and lasting impression on me. If anyone’s interested, I highly suggest reading it.
