Armenian Genocide Remembered in Jerusalem
11:50 Apr 26, ’04 / 5 Iyar 5764
(IsraelNN.com) April 24 is the day Armenians mark the Ottoman Turkish
massacres of their people that were carried out from 1915 to 1925.
Armenians say 1.5 million people were killed in what was in effect an
attempt at genocide.
This year, about 1,000 people – Armenians and others – from
Jerusalem, Jaffa, Haifa, Nazareth and overseas marked the anniversary
Saturday at the Armenian Convent in the Old City of Jerusalem.
Armenian Orthodox Christian prayers were recited, with incense and
candles lit in honor of the occasion.
