100th anniversary of the beginning of the Armenian genocide

(“Forget-me-not” – symbol of Armenian genocide centenary)
On 24 April 1915, Ottoman Turk empire police, military forces and allied institutions embark on the genocide of the people of Armenia with the subsequent murder of 1.5 million Armenians. On this day of the centenary of the first genocide in Europe in the 20th century, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan solemnly informs guests at an official commemorating ceremony in capital Yerevan: “I am grateful to all those who are here to once again confirm your commitment to human values, to say that nothing is forgotten, that after 100 years we remember.”
