Turkey with its Ottoman Empire was a key ally of Germany in World War I, but there are no commemorations marking the 100th anniversary of the war’s end.

The defeat and occupation is a history that Turkey chooses not to commemorate. Yet as Dorian Jones reports from Istanbul, the painful memories still remain a powerful force in society, reports VOA News.
