The Armenian Genocide is the second-most studied case of genocide after the Holocaust.
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand take back to 1915 to mark the beginning of the Armenian Genocide. It is the arrest of 250 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders in Istanbul that sparks the Ottoman government’s systematic extermination of 1.5 million Armenians. Plus, 1980 sees eight U.S. servicemen die during Operation Eagle Claw while attempting to end the Iran hostage crisis, and the Hubble Space Telescope is launched on this day in 1990.
