Haunted by History
User Rating: / 2
The ruins of the ancient Armenian capital of Ani are haunting, and haunted. On what is now a windblown patch of grassland enclosed in colossal walls and dotted with ancient cathedrals, there was once a great city.

The eight stages of Genocide
User Rating: / 8

Published on April 19, 2007

April should be a month of reflection for humanity on the atrocities committed throughout our history. We should all reflect on the Armenian Genocide, commemorated April 24, and on the Holocaust Yom Hashoa, commemorated April 15.

When Hitler was asked about what will the rest of the world do about his ‘final solution’ (his attempt to exterminate the Jews) he replied that it will be forgotten, like the Armenian Genocide.
History has shown that all genocides have something in common. All start with classification and end by denial, stage seven which is extermination...
As long as nothing is done to cut a genocide off as early as possible, at the first stage, humanity will have more genocides to commemorate...
It is imperative to know the signs of these stages that lead to the extermination of our fellow human beings.

В годините на Първата световна война западните арменци и целият арменски народ преживяха страшна, неописуема и жестока трагедия. Младо-турското правителство, преследващо своята националистическа и пантюркистка политика, в невиждани дотогава размери и с нечувана жестокост организира масовото избиване на арменци. Погромите станали по специално изработен план и се осъществили както по цялата територия на Западна Армения (Източна Турция), така и в големите градове и села на Турция.

Untold stories: Blessed assassin of armenian people

In July 1922 in Tiflis, in the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic, a man walking down the steps of a public building was approached by three men who emptied revolvers into him without a word, then turned and fled. tanding nearby at the time was the soon-to-be notorious Lavrenty Beria, brutal head of the Cheka, or Georgian Communist secret police. As the echoes of the gunshots died away, Beria turned to a friend and muttered “Eda dashnaksi terror”, meaning, “It is the Armenians”.

Van resistance
User Rating: / 5

The Resistance at Van was an insurgency against the Ottoman Empire's attempts to eliminate the Armenian population in the vilayet of Van. Based mostly in the city of Van, it was one of the few instances during the Armenian Genocide when Armenians, in an act of self-defense, fought against the Ottoman Empire's armed forces. The fighting lasted from April 19, 1915 until May 4 of that year, when the Ottoman army retreated as Russian forces approached the city.


During the late Ottoman period, Van was an important center of Armenian cultural, social, and economic life. Khrimian Hayrik established a printing press in Van, and thereafter launched "Artsiv Vaspurakan" (Eagle of Vaspourakan), which was the first periodical publication in Armenia. In 1885, the Armenakan party was established in the city of Van. Soonafter, the Hnchak and Dashnak parties established branches in the city.
