Armenian genocide memorial in the outskirts of Jerusalem.
Israel remains one of the few countries alongside Kurdistan, Russia, Brazil and Greece where is recognised.
I highly doubt only a handful of countries would recognize the Armenian Genocide, even with Turkey's status as a strong player in the Middle East and Asia and tied for Iran as leader of the Islamic world. The Cool War alone would make ITO recognize the Armenian Genocide and probably every nation outside of the CIS would choose to do so. With Turkey being one of the most militaristic nations with their annual intervention into Syria and how authoritarian it is compared to everyone else, its bad reputation alone would cause many to recognize it.

The opening title card for the hit tv series M*A*S*H. Set during the Chinese Civil War (specifically, the years 1948 to 1953), M*A*S*H would cover ground normally considered taboo for television. Running from 1972 to 1983, the show, set in a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, would mix comedy, drama, and political commentary into its 30 minute runtime. One episode, Follies of the Livinug, Concerns of the Dead, had the ghost of a dead American soldier linger around camp while he struggled to move on, while another, Foreign Affairs, had the gang try to smuggle a wounded Red Chinese soldier who was wanted by the Italian army out of the camp to recieve a fairer trial in United Nations-controlled territory.

I don't know if this is a problem on your end or mine, but I can't see the picture.

I'm guessing this occupies a similar niche to the one The Death of Stalin did IOTL.
 

The brazilian actor Tony Ramos playing the brazilian president and dictator Getúlio Vargas on "Getúlio" (2014). The film was released in Brazil on May 1, 2014, coinciding with the Workers' Day official holiday – in reference to the labor policies implemented by Getúlio. Filming took place in the Catete Palace, in Rio de Janeiro, seat of the federal government at the time and where Getúlio led Brazil for the spam of three decades. The movie became a cult classic in Brazil shortly after, but some critics pointed out that the ruling president, Ciro Gomes, a fervent Getulist, used the movie for his own political gains.
