Voices from the Lake. 2003. "Twenty-five years in research and production, the first feature-length documentary film on the Armenian genocide focuses on the day-to-day tragedy unfolding in Kharpert-Mezreh, one among 4000 towns and villages of the former Ottoman Empire in 1915, where monumental forces were unleashed by a policy of annihilation." A good documentary, but its describing of the genocide as 'secret' is misleading.

A silver woman's belt from Trabzon. Late-Ottoman, early 20th century. The woven belt is characteristic of the Trabzon silversmiths' work; the design of the buckle originated from the Turkish-Syrian border region (Antakya, Mardin, Aleppo, ...), but was imitated in almost all important cities of the Ottoman Empire from the 1850s on.
