Genocide Remembrance Day in Armenia. The Armenian Genocide began on this day in 1915 when the Young Turks undertook the systematic annihilation of Armenian intellectuals and entrepreneurs within the city of Constantinople and later the entire Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire. The Turkish government does not recognize this as genocide, arguing that the deaths took place within a context of civil war in which Armenians also killed Turks.
