House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session

MEMORANDUM

Posted: March 9, 2020 10:02 AM
From: Representative Thomas P. Murt
To: All House members
Subject: Day of Remembrance of the Armenian Genocide of 1915 - 1923
 
I intend to introduce a resolution designating April 24, 2020 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, Pennsylvania affirms the need for constant vigilance to prevent similar atrocities in the future.



Introduced as HR927
