Lest We Forget: Commemorating 103 years

Although the Genocide was marked by years of murder, abuse, forced deportations, and imprisonment at the turn of the 20th century, scholars mark the  April 24th is the day of remembrance by the Armenians. The day we pause and reflect on the atrocities committed and remember and honor the lives lost and saved during those years. April 24th marks the 103rd anniversary of the Genocide against the Armenians, Assyrians, and Anatolian Greeks.



A Forgotten Ally, Part One: Reverend Wirt and Viscount Shibusawa

The work done by the Japanese people, spearheaded by Rev. Wirt and Visc. Shibusawa, provided much needed aid to the Armenian people. Without this international support, Near East Relief would not have been able to help as many refugees as it did. Special thanks to NERHS contributing scholar, Vicken Babkenian, for providing the information and photographs for this dispatch.
