Uncensored Edition of British Blue Book Sheds Light on Armenian Genocide
Viscount James Bryce and Arnold Toynbee were commissioned to prepare the Blue Book, which is formally known as The Treatment of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire, 19151916. Toynbee carefully compiled and verified dozens of eyewitness accounts from different parts of the Ottoman Empire. These accounts provided the basis for Bryces brilliant thesis on the Genocide, published while the crime was still in progress.
The book includes eyewitness accounts from United States consular and missionary sources, as well as the testimony of German, Italian, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Greek, Kurdish, and Armenian witnesses.

It's not even an issue whether anyone “believes” it. The Turkish people are not stupid. They have cell phones, the Internet etc. They read books, they know it happened. To believe otherwise is simply an insult to their intelligence. The government there chooses not to officially recognize the event because they feel it's politically embarrassing, period. That is their right, but for the government of France to publicly spank them for obvious political reasons is pretty hypocritical given the historic past.
