Amy Hoogasian

Join correspondent, Tom Wilmer in San Francisco for a conversation with Amy Hoogasian, as she talks about the Armenian Genocide in Turkey, 1915-1918. Her passionate quest for Turkey to acknowledge their genocidal policies and actions against the Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire a century ago was inculcated as a child when her grandparents shared horrific memories of abuse and mass murder at the hands of the Turks.
