On this day in 1915: Armenian genocide begins

Armenian flag
On April 24, 1915 Ottoman Turks arrested 250 Armenian leaders--thus began the Turkish genocide of 1.5 million Armenians.

Ever since Turkish leaders--including its current president Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan, have denied that it occurred.

It did. Never forget and never again.
