Transcript of The Armenian Genocide

The Armenian Genocide The Armenian Genocide – also known as the Armenian Holocaust, the Armenian Massacres and, by Armenians, as the Great Crime – refers to the deliberate and systematic destruction (genocide) of the Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire during and just after World War I. It was implemented through wholesale massacres and deportations, with the deportations consisting of forced marches under conditions designed to lead to the death of the deportees. The total number of resulting Armenian deaths is generally held to have been between one and one and a half million. Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?
“Our strength lies in our intensive attacks and our barbarity...After all, who today remembers the genocide of the Armenians?”
-Adolf Hitler Although the genocide was carried out throughout a decade, we honour the memory of the victims of the genocide every year on the 24th of April, the reason for this being that on the April 24th of the year 1915 over 600 great armenian minds; writers, philosophers, artists, poets and politicians were executed publicly by the Ottoman empire.
