SoCal Armenian community marks genocide anniversary

Twenty-seven countries and most US states have formally recognized the Armenian massacre as genocide, but Erdogan contended that the deaths were the result of "fierce and harsh conditions" during World War I.

While the number of Armenians who perished during the genocide remains under debate, Armenians say 1.5 million died, while Turkey suggests 300,000 perished.

Armenia pushed for greater recognition of the deaths as genocide in the run-up to the centennial anniversary in 2015 leading to resolutions being passed by the European Parliament, Germany and several other countries' parliaments.

The US president, just as before, used an Armenian term translated as "a great tragedy". "It's a historic day for Armenia".

The former USA presidents, starting from 1981, including Barack Obama, also refused to call the historical events a "genocide". More than 100 years ago maybe there was so much accumulation of evil and hatred in the world, as it is in our days, however at that time the indifference of the world resulted in millions of human victims, who were massacred or were forcibly deported from their birthplace because of national belonging, being Armenian. In 2017, it accused the United States president, Donald Trump, of "misinformation" when he stopped short of using the word genocide but marked "one of the worst mass atrocities of the 20th century".
