AESA Closed April 24 2024 Armenian Genocide Rememberance

AESA Closed April 24, 2024

On April 24, 2024, our organization will be closed in honor of Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, commemorating the lives lost during this tragic event. We stand in solidarity with the Armenian community as we remember and reflect on this solemn occasion.

A (Brief) History of the American Genocide

From Armenian Genocide: Facts & Timeline – HISTORY

The Armenian genocide was the systematic killing and deportation of Armenians by the Turks of the Ottoman Empire. In 1915, during World War I, leaders of the Turkish government set in motion a plan to expel and massacre Armenians. By the early 1920s, when the genocide finally ended, between 600,000 and 1.5 million Armenians were dead, with many more forcibly removed from the country. Today, most historians call this event a genocide: a premeditated and systematic campaign to exterminate an entire people. In 2021, U.S. President Joe Bidenissued a declaration that the Ottoman Empire’s slaughter of Armenian civilians was genocide. However, the Turkish government still does not acknowledge the scope of these events.

From Wikipedia: Armenian genocide – Wikipedia

The Armenian genocide was the systematic destruction of the Armenian people and identity in the Ottoman Empire during World War I. Spearheaded by the ruling Committee of Union and Progress (CUP), it was implemented primarily through the mass murder of around one million Armenians during death marches to the Syrian Desert and the forced Islamization of others, primarily women and children.
