The Armenian Genocide of April 24, 1915 - 97 Years Later
The Armenian Genocide has been a constant struggle in the Armenian Community around the world for the past 97 years. As the 97th Anniversary approaches next month, I feel the need to talk to you about it today. The Armenian Genocide happened on April 24, 1915 until about 1923. Crimes committed against humanity of Armenians by Ottoman Turkey. 1.5 Million Armenians were massacred, murdered, and taken out of their homes, deported, made people walk through the desert and when they get tired or fall, the Turkish Ottoman empire sees them and kicks them down, women were raped, slaughtered, decapated, stabbed, shot and so much more.
