April 24th is the day Armenians around the world have set aside to remember the Armenian Genocide of 1915. April 24, 1915 is the day that markd the beginning of a large scale Genocide carried out by the Ottoman Empire against the Armenians.
My great grandmother was a survivor of the Armenian Genocide and before her death was able to share the story of her experiences with my family and myself.
In the next few days, leading up to April 24th, I will be posting information and a variety of links about the Armenian Genocide, survivor accounts, and photo collections.
Here is a great article outlining the Armenian Genocide and events within it.
And an article from the NY Times in 1922 giving accounts of the Genocide and dispelling the stories put out by the Turkish Government.
