Massachusetts resident David Boyajian wrote his local newspaper questioning the Anti-Defamation League's (ADL) position on the Armenian Genocide. He set off a virtual firestorm of activity in Massachusetts communities reviewing the ADL's No Place for Hate project.

Boyajian, a longtime activist in the Armenian-American community and freelance writer, expressed outrage that the ADL national director Abraham Foxman had refused to recognize the Genocide. Neither would Foxman and the ADL support House and Senate resolutions that would make genocide recognition official.

We spend the hour with David Boyajian in a wide ranging conversation that includes audio testimony from genocide survivors.
