April 24, 2015 - Centennial of the Armenian Genocide
Part 1 - religious service - Armenian Church, Bucharest, Romania
The Armenian Genocide, also known as the Armenian Holocaust, the Armenian Massacres and, traditionally by Armenians, as Medz Yeghern
was the Ottoman government’s systematic extermination of its minority
Armenian subjects from their historic homeland in the territory
constituting the present-day Republic of Turkey. It took place during
and after World War I and was implemented in two phases: the wholesale
killing of the able-bodied male population through massacre and forced
labor, and the deportation of women, children, the elderly and infirm on
death marches to the Syrian Desert. The total number of people killed as a result has been estimated at between 1 and 1.5 million.
It is acknowledged to have been one of the first modern genocides, as
scholars point to the organized manner in which the killings were
carried out to eliminate the Armenians, and it is the second most-studied case of genocide after the Holocaust. The word genocide was coined in order to describe these events.
The starting date of the genocide is conventionally held to be 24
April 1915, the day Ottoman authorities rounded up and arrested some 250 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders in Constantinople.

“I was amazed with the vibe of the old town, the variety of restaurants, the cafes with nice esplanades. Bucharest is definitely recommended. Bucharest tourism is something that will grow as soon as people realize how special this place is.”
“The celebrated capital of Romania wallows in architectural marvels, the Patriarchal Church, the Palace of Parliament and the Arch of Triumph. But Bucharest is best enjoyed from the seat of an al fresco café, watching life go by.”
