History versus propaganda

I have a Master of Arts degree in Modern History ("modern", that is, in contrast to ancient or classical history), and am very glad I read history. It makes one careful to try to distinguish between history and propaganda.
For those still interested in separating the history from the propaganda concerning the Armenian question, I recommend a recent article by Barbara Lerner in the National Review Online. At least it gives the historical background to the events in Anatolia during WWI, a background which I suspect very few people are aware of.
