The legacy of Armenian suffering - April 23, 2015
On April 24 every year, Armenian Christians around the world solemnly remember the start of the tremendous suffering they faced in 1915 during the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. The date marks the day when some 250 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders were arrested and deported from Istanbul. Few survived. The event was only the beginning of mass deportations of Armenians from parts of Ottoman Anatolia.
