In remembrance of Armenian Genocide, 1915-17

Posted on by royvickery |

 

British Legion poppy wreaths, rather anachronistically, placed at the base of the Cenotaph, in Whitehall, Westminster, and notice, featuring forget-me-nots, Myosotis sp., attached to the barrier around the Cenotaph, to commemorate the Armenian Genocide of 1915-17.  During this time the Ottomans massacred an estimated 1.5 million Armenians.  Over the years since 1975 24 April has become internationally recognised as Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day.
