  1. This film should have been produced long ago.
    But the media is unfair it is not a fiction,
    All are facts in, more than the film, the events are important in…
    there is no lie in, no imitation.
    My father’s great cousins where two brothers both studying in Vienna in the medical shool, they came for a holiday to their home in Diyarbakir in April 1915, both slaughtered.
    My grandfather and his relatives. My grandfather went to work never seen again!
    I have published 14 poetry collections in each one I have mentioned about the Armenian genocide, and other genocides as well.
    We have many pieces of lands there we have all the papers that prove it is our, no-one can claim any penny all gone with lives, with gold, with books, with tapestries, with trees, with gardens, with fruits …

  2. I agree that the film “Promise” should have been produced generations back but because of pressure form Turkey it never was done. Both my parents whom lived in different Provinces of Historic Armenia lost their families. My father whom came from the Village of Sis in the Provence of Shabin Karahissar lost his wife, 3 children, father & mother along with others, whereby my mother whom came from the Village of Goteh in the Provence of Erzerum, whereby her whole Village was sent on a death march killing them one by one & my mother being married with two children, they bayoneted one & died & the other died of starvation after 13 days. Her whole family was killed by Turks & Kurds & she ended up as the only survivor from her village when going by a Missionary Home they pulled her in and got saved. After the war she ended up in the U.S. where she met my father & got re-married & had four more children here in the state. I am sure every Armenian has their story on what the Turks did to our people in that 1st Genocide of 1915-1923.

    My mother was seven years old, when her father was taken to the center of town along with others, and when he wouldn’t denounce that he was a Christian, he was shot. Their home, orchards and possessions were taken. My metz myrig, along with my mother, aunts and uncle were sent on a march in the desert. Finally, I think they were able to escape, but my mother’s younger brother died from a burst appendix, and one of her older sisters also died. They finally made their way to Rumania, where my metz myrig’s brother, Ardashes, had a home. After that, they went to Athens, Greece.

    It is very interesting that The Promise is NOT playing in Pasadena, California. Pasadena has one of the largest Armenian population in California. I wonder why?

    I am finally happy to see that this film about the Armenian Genocide by the hands of the Turkish Ottoman Empire has been produced. heartfelt thanks to Mr. Kirk Krikorian’s generosity and to all those who took part in bringing this movie to a reality.
    I was told as a young boy in MiddleEast, growing up,that my grandfather Avedis (my dad’s dad) lost his parents and 4 older siblings to the Armenian Genocide in 1915. He was born 1909, so, that made him 6 yrs old at the time he lost his entire family. He ended up in orphanage in Aleppo, Syria, where later on met my grandmother Antaram and married her. She was 3 at the time of the Genocide and had lost relatives to the Genocide as well.
    It is way past due for Turkey to accept the fact that their Ottoman Empire headed by Kamal Ataturk back in 1915 slaughtered 1.5 million Orthodox Christian Armenians out of 2 million population in total.
    Sincerely,
    Avo Oymayan
