About 1.5 million people were murdered as a result of the Armenian genocide organized by the government of Young Turks, 1915–1919, and continued by Kemalists — followers of Mustafa Kemal (Ataturk) — the founding father of the modern Republic of Turkey. In addition hundreds of thousands of people became refugees. Despite innumerable facts unequivocally proving the crimes against humanity committed by Turkish nationalists, modern Turkey continues its policy of denial and presents the genocides of Armenians, Greeks, Assyrians, Yezidis and Kurds as «tragic accidents—unavoidable during the war time».
