Armenian Refugees after Armenian Genocide By Marissa Burkholder
P1 APHG Important Statement: The most important thing about the Armenian Refugees during the late 1800s is that they were survivors of the Armenian Genocide because they were forced to flee their homeland. TYPE OF MIGRATION: The Armenian Refugees are considered to be forced migration. They did not migrate within the same country, but traveled to other countries, so they were international migrants. Push Factors! The Armenian Refugees mainly faced political or cultural push factors causing them to leave their homeland. Since they were escaping the genocide, a push factor was political instability and having to leave for survival. What is a Genocide? A Genocide is an organized mass killing of a group of people that have a common characteristic. (ie. race, religion). Genocides require much planning and machinery to act out, so most genocides are conducted by a government. A famous genocide was the Holocaust. This was when the Nazis murdered the Jew population. Pull Factors! The Armenians went to an area where they could practice their culture freely because they were refugees escaping religious persecution.

When the Armenians were migrating to America, the pull factor was much more smaller than the push factor. Intervening Obstacles An Intervening obstacle of the Armenian refugees were that their destination country would not have adequate land for the refugees to settle. Also, many Armenians lacked travel documents or finances for them to reside in their new country. Additionally, Armenians were usually unskilled laborers. Gravity Model Attitudes Toward Refugees Most Armenians faced hostile attitudes of locals. Most locals had poor knowledge of Armenian language. This was difficult for the locals and Armenians to communicate. Also, the Armenians were mainly unemployed and lived in temporary shelters, which caused locals to have negative attitudes.
