Genocide Recognition News

Statement of President Barack Obama on Armenian Remembrance Day: "Ninety four years ago, one of the great atrocities of the 20th century began. Each year, we pause to remember the 1.5 million Armenians who were subsequently massacred or marched to their death in the final days of the Ottoman Empire. The Meds Yeghern must live on in our memories, just as it lives on in the hearts of the Armenian people..."
Obama did not pronounce the word "genocide", although he used the Armenian term "Mets Yeghern".
