MEMORANDUM

Posted: April 4, 2019 12:00 PM
From: Representative Thomas P. Murt
To: All House members
Subject: Day of Remembrance of the Armenian Genocide of 1915 - 1923
 
I am planning to introduce a resolution designating April 24, 2019 as “Pennsylvania’s Day of Remembrance of the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923.”

Between 1915 and 1923, the Turkish Ottoman Empire perpetrated genocide on 1.5 million men, women and children of Armenian descent in the attempt to eliminate all traces of the 3,000-year-old Armenian culture.

By remembering and openly condemning the atrocities committed against the Armenians, the Commonwealth affirms the need for constant vigilance to prevent similar atrocities in the future.
