Pope's Comments on Armenian 'Genocide' Mirror Churchill's Comments in Book Later Read by Young JFK

On Sunday, Pope Francis labeled the century-old killing of more than 1 million Armenians by the Ottoman Turks as "the first genocide of the 20th century". It called to mind what Winston Churchill wrote about that slaughter in his book THE WORLD CRISIS.

Readers of my book WHEN LIONS ROAR: The Churchills and the Kennedys will find a scene in which Kay Halle, a friend of both families, recalls how she visited a sick 15-year-old John F. Kennedy in his Boston hospital bed and found him reading Churchill's "The World Crisis."
