The article revisits the genocide of Armenian Christians in Anatolia attempting to discuss the ways that both sides, Armenians and Turks, handled this conflict, while showing how the complexity of Armenian–Turkish tensions affects their lives until today. According to the writer, these issues still influence the relations in present-day Muslim and Christian interaction. Therefore, the article is based on the premise that any improvement of Turkish–Armenian relations and the reconciliation prospects are influenced by shedding light to their past.
