Mass Killings (Genocide) of Armenians under the Ottoman Rule in 1915

Mass Killings (Genocide) of Armenians under the Ottoman Rule in 1915.

I wrote this piece on the Genocide of Armenians in 1915 after seeing a protest while I was traveling through Thessaloniki. That morning I skimmed through a BBC post about the subject, but unfortunately and honestly didn’t think much of it. Just hours later I was wondering through Thessaloniki with Paul and Jake when upon turning onto a larger street we saw hundreds of people marching. Their presence was incredible and their voices were loud. I felt the need to do some research about the topic after seeing (and clearly hearing) them throughout the city. This post describes what I learned and where I stand as an individual.
