House of Representatives Honors Armenian Genocide Victims

As the House of Representatives solemnly pays tribute to Armenian Genocide victims on April 24 each year, they emphasize the importance of peace, justice, and historical education to prevent such atrocities from happening again. Cyprus’s early recognition of the genocide in 1975 underscores the global efforts to acknowledge and remember the 1.5 million lives lost during the Ottoman Empire’s systematic purge of Armenians in the early 20th century.
