TV documentary about the genocide of Armenians: Between 1915 and 1917, over one million Armenians died in deportations in the Ottoman Empire. The Turkish government continues to deny the atrocities to this day, even though Turks were outraged at the time. Director Eric Friedler dispenses with the usual play scenes; instead, Martina Gedeck, Joachim Król, Axel Milberg and other eyewitness accounts are portrayed - painfully authentic.
