Truth Held Hostage—Why the Armenian Genocide Matters Today: A Talk by Ambassador John Evans

Ambassador John M. Evans is the author of Truth Held Hostage: America and the Armenian Genocide—What Then? What Now? (2016). After a long career in the U.S. State Department Foreign Service, he served the U.S. Ambassador to Armenia from 2004 to 2006, and defied U.S. State Department policy of not using the term genocide to describe what happened to Armenians during World War I.
