Abstract

On 24 April, events will be held in Turkey to commemorate the First World War campaign in Gallipoli, which took place in 1915. Hayk Hovhannisyan writes, however, that the commemoration has generated controversy because it risks overshadowing another centenary: that of the mass killing of Armenians, which is traditionally marked on the same day. He argues that Turkey’s decision to bring the date forward one day from the usual date of 25 April was made for political reasons and that the international community should be more willing to criticise Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan over the issue.
