The administration of the oldest universal English encyclopedia - Encyclopaedia Britannica – edited the article on the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire, replacing the phrase “Armenian massacres” with the term “Armenian Genocide.” In fact, the word “genocide” is written with capital letter.

The article reads: “Armenian Genocide, brutal campaign conducted against the Armenian subjects of the Ottoman Empire by the Young Turk government during World War I (1914–18).The hundreds of thousands of deaths that occurred are the subject of intense debate between scholars and governments. Armenians charge that the campaign was a deliberate attempt to destroy the Armenian people and, thus, an act of genocide. The Turkish government has resisted calls to recognize it as such, contending that, although atrocities took place, there was no official policy of extermination implemented against the Armenian people as a group.”
