Armenia

The landlocked Republic of Armenia is a Eurasian neighbor of Turkey, Iran, Georgia, and Azerbaijan and its Nakhchivan exclave. Armenia's tightly knit population claims descent from the Biblical Noah's great great grandson Hayk. Typical questions relate to the country's ancient legacies in art, literature, music, and religion; industry and manufacturing based economy; pristine appeal to mountain climbers and skiers; and troubled politics with Turkey and Azerbaijan.

Do Armenians and Georgians belong to the same language family?

No. Armenian and Georgian languages are quite different.

Armenian language belongs to Indo-European languages' family, consisting a separate branch thereof. While Georgian language is Caucasian language and has been for centuries as only Caucasian language, having alphabet and literature.

Georgian and Armenian languages are written by their own scripts. Georgian alphabet was invented by King Parnavaz of Iberia in V c BC. The oldest Georgian inscription found ever belongs to II AD. Georgian alphabet has changed its forms for 2 times and nowadays Georgian language has 3 different alphabets. First 2 is used for church services and the newest is the official script for Georgian language as a state language of Georgia.

Armenian alphabet was invented by Armenian scholar Mesrop Mashtots in V c AD, 10 centuries later. It has never changed forms, only some letters were added in later mid centuries and it is used as official script for Armenian language.

Who are the Garoghlanian Tribe?

William Saroyan (August 31, 1908 - May 18, 1981) was an American author who wrote many plays and short stories about growing up impoverished as the son of Armenian immigrants. These stories were popular during the Great Depression. Saroyan grew up in Fresno, the center of Armenian-Americans in California, where many of his works are set (although he sometimes gave the city a fictional name).

Now, what does Mr. Saroyan have to do with the Garoghlanian Tribe? I think he invented it for his works of fiction. In 'My Name is Aram', a book of short stories, his protagonist is a boy of Armenian descent called Aram Garoghlanian. Internet search engines seem to find only references to this book or to questions about the Garoghlanian Tribe on WikiAnswers and YahooAnswers. There are no actual people with this surname and no geographic region called Garoghlia or anything similar. Some answers say the family fell victim to the Armenian Genocide, but that cannot explain the total lack of historic references. Lacking evidence of its existance, I must conclude that this tribe is fictitious.

When did Armenia become a part of the Roman Empire?

Armenia never actually became part of the Roman empire with provincial status. Yes, it was invaded by Roman troops a couple of times, but they withdrew for various reasons. However, Armenia was a client kingdom of Rome, which meant that even though an independent kingdom, Rome still approved or appointed its kings.

Genocide

What happened in the Armenian Genocide?

About 1.5 million Armenians were systematically exterminated by the Ottoman Turks between 1915 and 1917 and there were further massacres in 1922. This crime was committed on historical Armenian lands where they lived for thousands of years.

The Ottoman Empire, under the leadership of the Young Turks, massacred the native Armenians from their homelands under the veil of World War I. The Armenians were unable to defend themselves as they weren't even allowed to bear arms due to the fact they were a Christian minority. It is worth noting that several hundred thousand Pontiac Greeks and Assyrians were also victims of the Ottoman's extermination of the christian minorities of the region.

The Ottoman Turks have destroyed much of the incriminating records of their heinous actions in an effort to conceal the extermination, though several reports and documents have been surfacing as international scholars probe Turkey's archives. Many books have also been written on the subject, with the most popular being written by citizens of Turkey - Orhan Pamuk even won the Nobel Prize for Literature for his book on the Armenian Genocide! Although the Turkish government to this day continues to deny the Genocide, many citizens of Turkey privately accept and discuss the Armenian Genocide. Public discussion, on the other hand, is a violation of Turkey's Article 301, whereby those who insult "Turkishness" are subject to imprisonment.

The Armenian diaspora is a very devoted and powerful group, and will continue to seek acknowledgement of the genocide by Turkey and America. However, the Armenian Genocide is an openly recognized chapter in history worldwide.

----

In 1915 the Ottoman Turkish government claimed that some Armenian units in the army had gone over to the enemy side. As far as I'm aware, most historians would accept that some Armenians had deserted to the Russians, but on nothing like the scale alleged.

Enver Talaat and other Turkish politicians had all Armenians rounded up and sent on a very long march - from Eastern Anatolia to camps in the Syrian desert in the blazing heat of spring and summer, 1915. They were given insufficient food and drink, and during the march they were frequently attacked by Kurdish tribesmen. By 1917 most had perished and those still in camps were killed.

After World War 1 the Turks expelled nearly all Christians in 1922, and most of the remaining Armenians were expelled and many were killed. Many of those who were expelled or escaped settled in California.

In all, in 1915-17 and 1922 an estimated total of about 1.5 million Armenians were slaughtered by the Turks.

To this day the Turkish government vehemently denies this act of genocide.

-------

In the Turkish view, Armenians in Eastern Ottoman Empire joined in ranks of Russian, in south Ottoman Empire they joined ranks of France, in central Ottoman Empire they made guerrilla attacks. This triggered a civil war between Turks and Armenians. Many Armenians were murderred in a barbaric way and their bodies were disfigured, heads were choped off and had been displayed, women were raped and many girls threw themselves in the water to drown so they wont be harmed or raped, and babies were killed.
the Armenian genocide happened in 1915, April 24. first the Ottoman Empire took all the smart people such as lawyers, doctors, engineers,... and killed them off separately so the other Armenians would be helpless in times of need. the they deported all the Armenians including men, women, children, infants, and elders. they took them to the Der Zhor desert and starved, tortured, and devastated them until they reached a point were they could no longer withstand and died. 1.5 MILLION Armenians were killed and the Turks have been denying it ever since. You probably think turkey is telling the truth and the Armenian genocide is no big deal, but what if it was your great grandparents or you or your parents who had to go through this. watching your own parents get murdered in front of your eyes, starving so mush your bones show and your stomach bulges out because it is swelling from hunger. Having to walk through a desert while being whipped and tortured. well, think about it. if it was you would you take no for an answer? or would you fight for your rights so turkey would admit the genocide. if this has touched your hearts please join us as we fight for our rights every day, and especially on April 24th. Do you know why America doesn't admit the genocide? because turkey is threatening and blackmailing America that they will lose their airbase and oil they have in turkey if they admit the genocide. if turkey truly thought it wasn't true why would they try so hard to have America not admit it?

Where can you find information about the Garoghlanian Tribe of Armenia?

Amazon Books has a number of books that tell of the Garoghlanians. You might also try your local bookstores and libraries. It is not clear to me whether this is a fictional family or if there is/was an actual tribe by this name. Isabel From WikiPedia

Could the Armenian Genocide have been prevented?

no

This is arguable... it is an opinion...I believe it could have been prevented because World War 1 had greatly weakened the Armenians and the war had prevented other countries who had wanted to help from helping because they had little monet and supplies to spare.

How do you say I do not speak Armenian in Armenian?

Western Armenian dialect you would say Hayeren chem keeder or you could say Hayeren chem khoseer- which literally translates to "Armenian, I don't know" or "Armenian, I don't speak". In Armenian phonetics, you put the subject first, then the description last.

Western Armenian is the dialect known mostly to the diaspora of Armenians, living throughout the world. But if you are in the country of Armenia, they speak a different dialect - Hayastanci - and they would definitely understand what the two phrases above mean but they speak a different dialect so don't be surprised if you see more than a couple of answers on here...

How did the Armenians die in the Armenian genocide?

The Young Turks in 1915 had very nationalistic ideas in spreading the Ottoman Empire and creating a Pan Turkic nation by removing the Armenians, taking their belongings and land. While the rest of the WORLD was busy with WWI, they achieved what they set out to do by first executing any of the men that were of any importance in the community. These included lawyers, judges, doctors - the educated and somewhat powerful. Once the powerful were gone, it was time for the males in the family to be eliminated. This was done once again either by quick execution OR immediate "draft" into the Turkish army whereby they were marched to death camps and executed by the thousands, not even bothering to march them for at least a day's distance. Word came back that these executions were taking place and some areas tried resistance. In the meantime, with most of the men (by men, I am referring to boys of the age of 13 and up) gone, executed in front of their families, or killed in march - the women, children and elderly were told they had less than an hour to pack their belongings to "meet" their husbands, fathers, brothers, etc. Of course if you are told you have to leave immediately as a woman with young children or you will be executed OR you can join your husband, etc - they basically took the latter choice, not knowing that their husbands were already dead and they would be marched in exactly the opposite direction, into the Syrian desert. After several weeks of walking with literally the clothes on their back and no food, they began dying of starvation and disease. The Euphrates River along their death march was littered with bodies floating down - children were left orphaned or died of starvation, too. The young turks released hundreds of hardened criminals from their jails in return for enlistment into their gendarme regime. These criminals were enlisted into accompanying the women, children and elderly into the desert and given free reign to do as they pleased with them as long as they would not be able to come back to their goods, their property or their homeland. Armenia was reduced to approximately 20% of her original size and over 1.5 million Armenians were killed. There is not a single Armenian family that was not affected by the genocide in one way or another. Armenia was an ancient country that dates back over 8,000 years. Armenia even has Karahounge, the Armenian Stonehenge that outdates the English Stonehenge by over 5,000 years. Her original borders were the Caspian Sea, the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. Because of Armenia's location in the middle of Asia and Europe it has always been in the middle of conflict, but it wasn't until the Ottoman Turks in 1915 that most Armenian lives were gone and her borders shrunk by over 80%. To this day, the Turkish people vehemently deny there was ever a genocide. Not a single reparation has ever been made to any Armenian who lost their valuables, their homes, their families. Not only are Turks not allowed to admit the genocide but if any of them ever even questions the denial, they would be arrested by the Turkish government and charged with being non-Nationalistic and for the past almost 100 years their denial has been responsible for genocide being repeated in several other cultures throughout the world. As a matter of fact, the denial by the Turks is so vehement and their hatred of Armenians is so vehement that when Hrant Dink (a famous Armenian journalist & Armenian newspaper publisher who lived in present day Turkey)was assassinated in broad daylight, the shooter was hailed as a hero!

What caused the Armenian genocide of 1915?

Unkindness and discrimination were what caused Turks to murder Armenians. I had the pleasure of hosting an exchange student from Armenia, his country still hates the Turks for what they did. They got away with it and to date, they have not been held accountable for their war crimes.

-----

The Armenian nationalist movement wanted to separate but as they were always minor in the region they started terrorizing. This started a civil war.

Armenians started that.

____

There is a very influential lobby that denies the Armenian Holocaust. The Turks had been gleefully massacring the Armenians off and on since 1896. However, any mention of the Armenian genocide sends the modern Turkish government into a fit of blind rage. In Turkey you can be sent to prison for saying that the Ottoman Empire committed genocide. It's amazing that the Turkish government is allowed to refuse to face up to the past.

The arguments used by denialists are generally very similar, whether they are denying the Nazi genocide of the Jews or the Ottoman genocide of the Armenians. Claims that the victims started it by fighting the bullies are just laughable.
