Abstract

This article argues that the mass deportations and executions committed by the Ottoman regime against the Armenian people constituted a crime of humanity but did not rise to the level of a systematic and sustained effort to exterminate an entire people. It presents an objective dispassionate examination of the known historical facts to correctly characterize the wrongs committed against the Armenian people in hopes of helping to attain the outcome of reconciliation of Turkish and Armenian peoples. As such it represents an example of the theory of therapeutic jurisprudence in practice. Circa 18 pages.
