Therefore it is absolutely necessary to eliminate the Armenian people in its entirety, so that there is no further Armenian on this earth and the very concept of Armenia is extinguished. We are now at war. we shall never have a more suitable opportunity thatn this." Dr. Nazim April 24, 1915 was when the real killing began They killed community leaders and intellectuals first.
