April 24th was the 101st anniversary of Medz Yeghern, the Armenian Holocaust, considered the first modern-era genocide, wherein up to 1.5 million* Armenian children, women, and men were systematically murdered by elements of the Ottoman Empire, executed and/or died on a death march from Armenia south through Turkey and from there down into the Syrian desert.
The Ottoman Empire ceased to exist at the end of the Greco-Turkish War and World War I, what physically remains is today the Republic of Turkey. *Wikipedia/New York Times (adapted from last year's post)
