97th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide

“Where there are two Armenians, you have Armenia

Little Armenian one of LA's best places to get some excellent Kabob and Humus, as well as many other tasty Armenian dishes was a buzz just before 10:00 am. on the corner of Hollywood & Hobart. this is where the ceremony march took place remembering the 97th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.

It was Hitler when asked if he thought he could get away with killing the Jews that said. “Well who remembers the Armenians?”

An estimated 1.5 million Armenians died from 1915-23 in what has been called the first genocide of the 20th century.

The story is passed down from generation to generation about what happened to the Armenian people who lived in Turkey during 1915 to 1923. More than 200,000 children were left without parents.

Their is a great article in the daily Breeze about the Genocide, its history and how the United States and Turkey still do not recognize that it actually took place.

The memorial museum located in Montebello is an excellent place to see the photos and hear the story of the 1st genocide of the 21st. Century.

Today there are almost 500,000 Armenians living in Los Angeles

This week is a great time to get down to little Armenia and taste the foods and meet the people that will never forget why they currently call Los Angeles home.
