100 YEARS

1915-2015

 

Remembering Our 1.5 Million Loved Ones 
 

Who Perished In The Armenian Genocide

April 24, 2015 marked the centennial commemoration of the Armenian Genocide. 
As Armenians in Texas, we took the powerful opportunity to increase our own and our state’s awareness of this historic occasion. As the world mourns other genocides across the globe, our 100th commemoration of the Armenian Genocide was timely and relevant.

 

Genocide survivors suffered and sacrificed to give many of us the opportunities we have today in the USA. In April 2015, we made the best of the collective opportunity to honor our forefathers, remember the tragic history of our people, and publicly remind Texas why genocide is an atrocity.
