Remembering the Armenian Genocide – 101 Years of Denial

Armenian Genocide Rememberance

Remembering the Armenian Genocide


Yesterday, 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 101 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…

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. Previously, I wrote a series of posts on the topic, including the account of the genocide by my great grandmother, that you can see here:

Part 1 – The Armenian Genocide
Part 2 – What Transpired
Part 3 – Recognition of the Armenian Genocide
Part 4 – A Survivor’s Account of the Armenian Genocide – My Great Grandmother.

Why, as an Armenian, I am not offended by the Kim Kardashian Turkish Cosmo Cover

If you haven’t heard about the controversy, Kim Kardashian was featured on the April cover of the Turkish print of Cosmo magazine. You can read/see more about this here:

Though I do find it offensive that a Turkish entity is using an Armenian for the purpose of profit (selling magazines in this case), I am not offended by Kim Kardashian being on the cover of the April issue of the Turkish Cosmo. Why? I feel like this is a sign of triumph over the Genocide. 96 years ago on April 24, 1915 the Turkish government tried to wipe out the Armenian people and now here we are on the covers of their magazines. It is almost a tribute to our resilience. Hell, I wish Armenians were on the covers of all Turkish magazines this month.
