History - Armenian Genocide

Armenia Genocide refers to the mass killing of one and half million of Armenians by the "Young Turk" government during the reign of Ottoman Empire between 1915-1916. The Genocide in Armenia was planned by a racist group,
the Central Committee of the Young Turk Party which was dominated by Mehmed Talat, Ismail Enver and Ahmed Djemal.

Armenia Genocide was directed by a Special Organization set up by the Committee of Union and Progress, which enrolled special "butcher battalions," consisted of violent criminals released from prisons.

Directed by the Young Turk government, the Armenian Genocide was planned in a systematic manner. The Armenians in the army were first disarmed, directed into labor battalions, and then they were killed. The Armenian political and intellectual leaders were accumulated on April 24, 1915, and then they were brutally massacred. Lastly, the remaining Armenians were marched off to concentration camps in the desert between Jerablus and Deir ez-Zor and were left to die. The government of Trebizond, loaded Armenians on barges and sank them out at sea.

The Turkish authority now denies that there was an Genocide and there was only one Turkish government, that of Damed Merit Pasha, who has ever acknowledged the Armenia Genocide.

Armenia Genocide testify that whenever there is mutual conflict mutual tolerance is threatened.
