(I apologize in advance for the photos, but the world have to see them!)
Today 98 years ago (during World War I) the Ottoman Empire started to kill the Christians to clean up their country. In their highest councils Turkish leaders (Talaat Pascha) decided to exterminate every Armenian, Aramean/Assyrian, Greek and other Christians in the country, whether a front-line soldier or pregnant woman, famous professor, high bishop or important businessman.
I remember, when my dad told me, that his great-grandmother was tied to a stake, and was then burnt alive in front of their family.
We were treated like animals. We were tortured. They’ve cut out the babys, from pregnants and thrown them against walls. They’ve beheaded the men and boys,…I could go on but it’s really disgusting just thinking about it.
Everytime, when I see these photos, I start to cry and think: WHY? WHY did they do this, WHY can
We cannot push away tragedy, because it is too painful, and we cannot simply overlook the past, no matter how heartbreaking it may be. We must not allow tragedies to fade, but rather, keep them in mind.
Turkey doesn’t want to admit to what they have done. THEY DENY THEIR OWN HISTORY! But you know what was our biggest achievement? We’ve survived. We won’t give up till the entire world recognize it.
-How would a black man feel if America had said that slavery wasn’t real!
You’ve learned about the Holocaust and Hitler’s name comes up in disgust, why hasn’t this been recognized?
If you could make Kony2012 happen, dear fellow bloggers, you could make the GENOCIDE recognized by the world, too.
Please reblog this post, it will mean the world to me, thank you.
