How many people were affected by the Armenian genocide?
Did anyone do something to stop the Armenian genocide?
Who was responsible for the Armenian genocide and WHY did they do it?
Genocide is defined as "the deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group." The Ottoman Government was responsible for the Armenian Genocide. To be specific Envar, Jemal,and Talat-pasha were the main people who organized the genocide. The killings were an attempt to wipe out the Armenians and rid them from Turkey. The reason you hear many people complaining/talking about the Armenian Genocide,and not the Holocaust, is because the Turkish government has not accepted the Armenian Genocide. They say it was a civil war, not a genocide, and they teach that to the children in the schools.

Asked in World War 1, Armenia
What occured in Armenia during World War 1?
In 1915 Turkey launched a campaign of genocide against the Armenian people. Before the genocide there were over two million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire; after, there were fewer than 400,000. Incidentally, the man who coined the word "genocide" was a lawyer of Polish/Jewish origin who investigated the accounts of the Armenian massacres.
How is the Armenian Genocide significant?
The Armenian Genocide is significant because, first of all, it was the first Genocide of the 20th century. Second, the Ottoman empire has nearly destroyed 70% of the Armenian population. Third, it was a mass massacre toward humanity due to the brutality and monstrosity they used to kill the Armenian people. And finally, they used the Armenians religion Christianity as a major cause to kill them.
Asked in Armenia, Decade - 1920s, Decade - 1910s, Genocide
Which states have recognized the Armenian genocide?
Why did the world ignore the Armenian genocide?
not all of the world ignored the Armenian genocide, infact there are many countries who believe the Armenian genocide happened (which is great) only some of the major countries (like U.S.A) stilll don't believe that the genocide happened, because Turkey is one of the major countries of the world and America is friends with them, so i guess that's why they ignored the Armenian genocide, plus, people are saying " It happened already! Why do we have to care about something that happened in 1915?!" Well, I'll tell you why, this genocide led to many genocides that were influenced by the Ottoman Empire, Like the Jewish Genocide, and Darfur, And Rwanda. It's all about power, and Turkey is powerful.
Who were the rescuers in the Armenian genocide?
Some of the more courageous rescuers during the Armenian genocide were the Syrians and other nomadic people throughout the region. There are many cases of Arabs hiding Armenians, or rescuing Armenian children and raising them as their own when their families were slaughtered. Another notable rescuer was Henry Morganthau, the American Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire who negotiated with the Ottomans and worked to publicize the atrocities committed against the Armenians.

Asked in Geography, Turkey (Country), Armenia
How much land does Turkey owe to Armenia?
Depending on the Armenian speaking, the Armenian homeland was up to 10% of the land of Turkey. However, since the Armenian Genocide, the land has become so devoid of Armenian people, Armenian culture, and Armenian buildings of importance (like churches and castles) that almost no important Armenian actively tries to have the land repatriated to Armenia.
Asked in World War 1
How did the concept of total war contribute to the genocide of the Armenian people during World War 1?
Asked in Armenia, Genocide, US Foreign Policy
Why should the US be interested in the Armenian genocide?
The United States should care about honoring the suffering of people who were butchered for who they were and what they believed, especially since the United States is a country founded by people who fled the Old World specifically because of ethnic and religious persecution -- just like what the Armenian, Pontic Greek, and Assyrian people suffered in the Ottoman-led genocide. Additionally, US Recognition of the genocide may force Turkey to become more introspective about its consistent denial of this unfathomable crime.

Asked in Human Rights
How did the Armenian genocide take away human rights?
Why is the Armenian Massacre considered a genocide?
The Armenian Genocide is a genocide specifically because the Armenian people were targeted for elimination by Young Turk leaders like Enver Pasha. Even if the Turks' claims that there were Armenians conspiring with the Russians are taken at face value (unlike the farce that they are), there would be no point in executing Armenian Pro-Ottoman intellectuals and numerous women and children. These repeated killings of Pro-Ottoman Armenians and women and children demonstrate that the attempt was extermination, not the minimization of a wartime threat.
What were the names of the people involved in the Armenian genocide?
How does the Armenian Genocide affect the Armenian people?
The Armenian people as well as all people in the world are much more aware to the fact that this can actually happen. History repeats its self and this is what many people realize from this. The population of Armenia was being wiped out and brutally abused, starve, and so many other things which people did not realize or help until it was too late.
