Niagara Falls to host Armenian Genocide commemoration event

PanARMENIAN.Net - On April 29, the local Armenian community of Niagara Falls and members of the St. Hagop and St. Sarkis Armenian Apostolic Churches will commemorate the anniversary of the Armenian Genocide beginning at the Cenotaph at Wright’s Park at Pine and Main followed by a Divine Liturgy at St. Sarkis and concluding at the Oakwood Cemetery on Portage Road at Cedar.

“An estimated one and a half million Armenians perished during the years between 1915 and 1923 by means of mass burnings, drowning, starvation, poisoning and drugs,” Norma Higgs says in a column in Niagara Gazette.

“Oakwood provides historical significance to the families and members of the Armenian community. The early Armenian arrivals settled on the east side of the city and most of their children turned out to be well educated and well placed in life. Many of these of the first generation have become well known and recognized for outstanding service to the community in various ways,” she says.
