My Bio: I'm William Bairamian, the publisher and editor in chief of The Armenite, an online periodical of Armenian news, culture, politics, society, and history, with showcases of art and literature.
Tomorrow, April 24, marks the 99th anniversary of the beginning of the Armenian Genocide. During the Genocide, 1.5 million Armenians were massacred and expunged from their historical homeland on the Armenian Highlands. To this day, the Republic of Turkey, the successor to the Ottoman Empire, denies that a genocide took place.
The Armenian Genocide is one of the most significant historical events in the 20th century and has had myriad political, societal, and historical consequences.
If there is anything more you want to know, I'm at your disposal.
