fashionably late

i saw it in a dream
Memorial of the Battle of Sardarabad - Armavir, Armenia
On April 24, 1915, the Ottoman Government set in motion a plan to exterminate all Armenians living in Turkey and head east until there were no Armenians left. Although this is not the first genocide ever, it is the first genocide of the modern era. To this day, the current government of Turkey does not recognize the genocide, nor does it even admit any killings even happened. This would be like the modern government of Germany never admitting that the holocaust ever happened. This monument is dedicated to the those Armenian heroes that fought in Sardarabad, Armenia’s last stand. If it was wasn’t for the heroes of Sardarabad and Musa Dagh, there would be no geographical Armenia today. Here we are, 99 years later, survivors of our genocide, and all we know is it will take more than a massacre to make our culture disappear
