This year marks the centennial of the Turkish campaign to wipe out the Armenian people and depopulate the Ottoman Empire of its Christian subjects. Last month was the official commemoration of this holocaust, known as Armenian Genocide Memorial Day. Our good friends at the Silent Majority No More have provided us with an illuminating photo-essay documenting the solemn acknowledgement of this genocide by the Armenian community living in New York City.

In addition to explaining the historical background behind the most horrific instance of
Muslim brutality towards the Ottoman Empire’s economic engine, that essay also explores the continued Turkish denial of state crimes committed in defense of Islamic and national prejudices.
