The Armenian Genocide (1915-1923) was the Ottoman government’s systematic extermination of its peaceful Christian Armenian subjects from their historic homeland within the territory constituting the present-day Republic of Turkey. As a result of the state-ordered and implemented campaign of genocide, the Ottoman Empire killed 1,500,000 Armenian men, women, and children, exiled the Armenian nation from its historic homeland, and destroyed and deported hundreds of thousands of its other Christian citizens. The slaughter began on April 24, 1915, when Ottoman authorities, specifically the “Young Turk” government, rounded up and arrested some 250 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders in Constantinople, followed by mass deportations and death marches in the interior of the country, in what came to be known as the Armenian Genocide.
