What is actually the Armenian Genocide?

Armenian Genocide is sometimes also referred to as the Armenian Holocaust. This genocide was the systematic mass murder and expulsion of the entire 1.5 million ethnic Americans.

This inhumane even was carried out in Turkey and in the adjoining regions of the Ottoman government, between 1914 and 1923.

The starting date of this genocide was conventionally held to be the 24th of April 1915. This was the day when the Ottoman authorities rounded up, arrested, and deported from Constantinople to the region of Angora.

This genocide was basically carried out during the First World War and was implemented in two stages. Stage 1 was the wholesale killing of the able-bodied male population through the use of a massacre and imposition of army conscripts of forced labor. The next stage that followed was the deportation of the women and children and then the elderly.


After that, even the other ethnic groups were targetted for extermination in the Asylum genocide and the Greek Genocide. This treatment to them is considered to be a part of the same genocide.
