Join correspondent, Tom Wilmer in San Francisco for a conversation with Amy Hoogasian, as she talks about the Armenian Genocide in Turkey, 1915-1918. Her passionate quest for Turkey to acknowledge their genocidal policies and actions against the Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire a century ago was inculcated as a child when her grandparents shared horrific memories of abuse and mass murder at the hands of the Turks.

Amy Hoogasian hails from Chicago and practiced law for twenty years in the areas of immigration, corporate and environmental law. She moved to San Francisco, California, when she was appointed to a distinguished position within the United States government.
