Genocide in Armenia

 Genocide in Armenia

 

 

In an attempt to persuade his staff that a Jewish holocaust would be tolerated, Adolf Hitler asked, “Who remembers today the extermination of the Armenians?” Hitler was referring to the genocide of nearly 1.5 million Armenian Christians at the hands of the Ottoman Turks beginning in 1915. Turkish authorities deny that the atrocities ever occurred, but the bloodbath has been one of the well-documented tragedies of our time. Prior to the genocide, the second class Armenians and Turks lived in harmony and conflict was rare. But Nationalism came on the scene and made ethnic groupings self-conscious. The Armenians became more isolated and the only major Christian minority. The extreme Turkish nationalists took complete dictatorial control and planned to eradicate the Armenian race. The leaders were murdered and the Armenians “relocated for their own good,” and weapons were confiscated. Able-bodied men were “drafted” and immediately killed or worked to death. Once the towns were emptied of men, the women, children, and elderly were sent on death marches to the Syrian Desert. They were denied food and water and many were brutalized and killed. Those who survived were killed upon arrival. Thousands of children were left orphaned by the holocaust. Unfortunately, genocide has not disappeared and continues in parts of the world today.
