New website on Armenian Genocide launched

PanARMENIAN.Net - Genocide1915.org is a new information site, dedicated to the 1915 Genocide in Ottoman Turkey, which engulfed Armenians, Assyrian/Syriacs and Anatolian and Pontic Greeks.

While there are number of excellent information sites on the Armenian Genocide, the new genocide1915.org aims to explain the genocide to the general public by answering the most frequently asked questions about the events during WWI, their background, the denial policy, the recognition process and gathering other information and material such as images, videos etc. in one place.

Genocide1915.org is the English version of the Swedish language Folkmordet1915.org which was released as part of the information campaign prior to the recognition of the 1915 Genocide by the Swedish Riksdag on March 11, 2010.

Genocide1915.org is created and maintained by Armenica.org in cooperation with the Union of Armenian Associations in Sweden.

Armenica.org is a nonprofit project for spreading information about Armenia and its related issues.
