On April the 24th 1915, about 200 Armenian intellectuals - writers, poets, doctors, and lawyers - living across the Ottoman Empire were rounded up by Ottoman soldiers and executed. In the following months, an elaborate plan of mass extermination drafted by the Young Turks was to be realized. When the dust settled, two thirds of the armenian population in the world had perished by direct killing, burning, drowning, gassing, or starvation on death marches. Millennia old cities and villages were wiped out, and an entire civilization was eradicated from its land. On April 24th of every year since then, decedents of survivors of this Genocide remember a beautiful country that once was, generations that are never to be, and try to raise awareness about the dangers of racism to all.
