The Armenians Remember

Armenian_Genocide_Orphans_ArnavutkoyApril 14, 1915, marks the 100th anniversary of the arrest, exile, and slaughter of hundreds of the Armenian intelligentsia.  Over the next few years, more than a million Armenians were killed. …

Meanwhile, the UN just released a report on ISIL/ISIS/IS with some echoes of 1915:

“It is reasonable to conclude that some of these incidents, considering the overall information, may constitute genocide. Other incidents may amount to crimes against humanity and war crimes.” UN Report, sec. II.A.1.16.

Commemorations of the 100th anniversary will take place in Washington on May 7-9, 2015.  Read more at the Foreign Policy Association, http://foreignpolicyblogs.com/2015/03/24/the-armenians-remember/
