'Untold Killing' tells the little-known story of genocide and ethnic cleansing right in the heart of Europe through the voices of those who survived it. It’s a tale of betrayal, injustice, and what the world’s wilful ignorance towards ethnic persecution leads to.

NaadhiraZ ,

A thorough and detailed summary of a terrible and recent European genocide.

This podcast provides a detailed account of a genocide whose perpetrators have attempted to erase their crimes by the most brutal means even after the fact.
The host was a perfect choice and the use of interviews to narrate most of the events and their aftermath is extremely effective and insightful.

It is truly disturbing to realise how few people are aware of such a terrible genocide that occurred during the childhoods of today’s millennials.

Give it a listen, it is difficult to hear the atrocities that humans are capable of inflicting upon one another, but ‘those who forget the past, are doomed to repeat it’

Hear this and learn

Amazing intricate and informative. As a part Turkish Brit I always wanted to know how this could happen, when it was in modern day. Having listened to direct survivors accounts and the news information, it made me realise, horrifically this happened because no one in the world cared enough. That chills the soul as the increase in separatist idealism’s all over Europe and beyond could make this happen again. This is such an important listen. Thank you.

Outstanding confrontation with truth

Everyone should hear this. It’s about nationalism hatred and moral denial. These are things thriving in the seed beds of politics all over the world today. These strange fruits will choke us all unless we wake up. Thank you Untold Killing,
