Remembering the Armenian Genocide – 102 years later

William Saroyan - Armenian Genocide

William Saroyan – Armenian Genocide


Today, April 24th, is a day of remembrance for the lives lost during the Armenian Genocide, which took place beginning April 24, 1915. We are now 102 years from the original atrocities that took place. Over 1.5 million Armenians were murdered between 1915-1918 – approximately 75-80% of the Armenian population of the world at that time. Thankfully, the attempts by the young turks of the Ottoman Empire to eradicate the Armenians was not successful. Currently the Armenian Diaspora includes over 9 million people throughout the world.
Please take a moment now to remember those lost in the Armenian Genocide…

The Armenian Genocide is still denied by Turkey, but over 25 countries and 45 US states have officially recognized and remembered the Armenian Genocide. If you have never heard of the Armenian Genocide before, please take a few minutes to browse through my posts below which outline some facts of the event and my great grandmothers account of the atrocities, as she was a survivor.
