Prof Justin McCarthy

Renown American Historian Professor Justin McCarthy visited Australia to hold a number of seminars in Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra in November 2014.

Prof McCarthy who is a professor of history at the University of Louisville, in Louisville, Kentucky, McCarthy said both sides lost thousands of lives but the events can not be classified as a genocide as because the killings were not ordered by the Government and more people lost their lives from the Turkish side during that time.

Late Ottoman era history expert Prof McCarthy explained what happened between 1915 and 1919 with historic facts and figures.
