A reminder that the 24th of April is the day of remembrance of the Armenian genocide, which one and a half million Armenians were killed between 1915 and 1923. About two million Armenians were living in the Ottoman Empire at that time. Armenian people were subjected to deportation, expropriation, abduction, torture, massacre, and left in the dessert to die of starvation and dehydration by the Turks. Even today, Turkey refuses to acknowledge that a genocide was committed against the Armenians during WW1, and dismisses the evidence about the horrible massacre as mere allegations and often prevents efforts for acknowledgment.
