Ottoman political authorities believed the easiest solution would be to ethically dispose the Armenian population. Is this really right? Imagine someone knocked and opened the door of a house. These individuals, political authorities, killed all males in the family, while, taking the rest of the family to a place of death and terror: this event lead to over a million Armenian deaths. During the Holocaust, the Germans viewed a variety of different ethnicities as political enemies and ethnically weak.
I will give you some background information about the Genocide, and why it happened. In the Article, “Business Insider”, the Armenian Genocide happened as an “result of the Ottoman Empire suffering it’s first loss in the First World War”, they state, “the Young Turk government decided to gather up all the Christian Armenian political leaders, and kill them.” The main reason why the Armenian Genocide happened was getting rid of any “Christian political Armenians”, living in the Ottoman Empire. Different articles have stated that there were roughly, “2 million Armenians who lived in the Ottoman Empire at this time”, and when the massacres finally ended almost “1.5 million Turkish Armenian’s were dead.” (History, Armenian
In 1915, leaders of the Turkish government set in motion a plan to expel and massacre the Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire. Though reports vary, most sources agree that there were about 2 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire at the time of the massacre. By the early 1920s, when the massacres and deportations finally ended, some 1.5 million of Turkey’s Armenians were dead, with many more forcibly removed from the country. Today, most historians call this event a genocide–a premeditated and systematic campaign to exterminate an entire people. However, the Turkish government does not acknowledge the enormity or scope of these events.
Genocide is the act of mass murdering groups of people because of someone 's disliking. In other words getting rid of people or stop their existence,mostly because of their religion, ethnic, or race.One of the most atrocious ones was the Armenian Genocide(April 24,1915-1916), in which 1.5 million of the Armenian population, living in the Ottoman Empire were either deported or killed.During this time,the Turkish government had planned the genocide to get rid of the entire Armenian population in the Ottoman Empire(which was one of the largest empires to rule on the border of the Mediterranean Sea) because they feared that the Armenian community would join their enemy troops during WWI in 1915. On April 24, the genocide began. The turkish government
Millions and millions of innocent people were massacred for, what appears to be, nothing. The Rwandan genocide is one the most memorable and savage. One million faultless Rwandans slaughtered, like animals, in one hundred days. The Hutu-government of Rwanda was lead by the ruthless , Jean-Paul Akayesu. They declared war on the Tutsis.
The Holocaust was supposed to be nameless. Hitler had become a chancellor in January 1933 but the people did not want him as thier chancellor (Colbert 2) The Natzis killed 11 million people in total and 6 million Jews were dead and the population was hit so much it almost decreased half the population (Metzer 89). At last the Germans surrendered and ended World War 2 on May 8th and let peace arise (Metzer 89). Anne Frank truly left a mark on the human race as the girl with the diary. Through all her hardships and fear, she showed everyone that even the littlest of people can impact the world.
100 years ago, the attempted annihilation of an entire race known as the Armenian genocide began. From 1914 - 1922, the massacres perpetrated by the government of Young Turks and later the Kemalist government aimed to eliminate all Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire (Armenian Genocide Museum - Institute). A population which had lived in the same region for centuries suddenly became nearly extinct. As for the cause, the outbreak of World War I provided the Young Turks an opportunity to solve the “Armenian question.” The Armenian question refers to the defence and liberty as well as fair treatment of Armenians during the disintegration of the Ottoman Empire (United Human Rights Council). With the world’s attention fixed on war, unusual civilian
Pertaining to a even earlier genocide than the Bosnian Genocide, one might refer to the Armenian genocide, which actually inspired Raphael Lemkin to define the style of mass predetermined killing. The Armenian genocide resulted in the death of over 1.5 million Armenians. It took place during World War I from 1914 to 1923, in the Ottoman Empire which is present day Turkey. The roots for such hatred can be traced back to dates as early as 1555. The Ottoman Empire negates the fact that this was a Genocide, but sees it as a way to combat the paramilitary groups that were rising up in
During the early 20th century, a series of events in the Middle East culminated in the mass killing of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians by the Turks of the Ottoman Empire. This event is now referred to as the Armenian Genocide. While many countries and international organizations recognize the killing of the Armenians by the Turks as genocide, there is still much denial and dispute that the Armenian Genocide even happened, particularly on the part of Turkey. Even though it happened one hundred years ago, the consequences of the Genocide and its acceptance or denial can still be seen today, in international relations, political alliances, and modern-day tensions. Although it is impossible to hide what happened in 1915, the Armenian Genocide
The Armenian Genocide, the first genocide of the 20th century, resulted in a major exodus of nearly an entire population. This event is still largely ignored by the Turkish government, those responsible for the horrific incident that led to the deaths and deportations of millions of Armenians. Throughout the late 19th century and early 20th century, Armenians were pushed from their native origins in Turkey as a result of a brutal genocide, which consequently led to their escape to the United States to seek a better life through economic opportunities and avoiding persecution. Armenians experienced push factors to immigrate to America through the opportunity of a better life as well as the influx of new economic prospects. In the 16th century,
