Armenian Quest for Lost Orphans
Ninety years ago, hundreds of thousands of Armenians died in mass killings that still resonate through Turkey's social and political life. But it is believed that thousands of orphaned Armenian children were saved secretly by Turkish families. Until now, the very existence of the children has remained largely an untold story, buried along with those who died between 1915 and 1916. But the stories of those Armenian orphans are slowly being uncovered by their descendants. Turkish documentary maker Berke Bas is one of those people.
