100 years ago: the beginning of Armenian Genocide


It was 100 years ago. On the night of 23–24 April 1915, known as “Red Sunday”, the Ottoman government rounded up and imprisoned an estimated 250 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders of the Ottoman capital, Constantinople. This first action was followed by the death of hundred of thousands of men, women and children. The efforts of many people, including lady Marali Marmartcheva (portrayed below), to inform the world about these massacres, were vain.
