• SUPERVISOR ANTONOVICH RECOGNIZES DAY OF REMEMBRANCE FOR THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE


    LOS ANGELES COUNTY – Along with members of the Armenian clergy, diplomatic corps and business community, Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich proclaimed April 24, 2012 as “Day of Remembrance for the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923” throughout Los Angeles County.

    On April 24, 1915, the Turkish government began the systematic extermination of the Armenian community. Religious, political and intellectual Armenian leaders were among the 1.5 million victims who were arrested and murdered.

    “Due to this horrible tragedy, the Armenian community is committed to ensuring that those who were tortured, enslaved, forcibly tattooed as property and killed during this massacre are never forgotten,” said Antonovich. “By consistently remembering and openly condemning the atrocities committed against the Armenians, Los Angeles County demonstrates its sensitivity to the need for constant vigilance to prevent similar events in the future.”

    “Los Angeles County is home to the largest population of Armenians in the United States, and they have enriched our County through their leadership in the fields of business, agriculture, academia, medicine, government and the arts,” he added.
