The latest genocide and bloody events list published by the “Conscience Committee” of the Genocide Commemoration Museum in the US claims that Turkey killed 1.5 million Armenians in Turkey.
It is said in a news article published in the Washington Post that the mass genocide of civilians and other humanitarian crimes have taken place in the century-long bloody wars. The article reports that the number of lives lost and crimes committed have been recorded, however, the exact number can never be known.
Humanitarian crimes that took place in various places around the world have also been recorded in the list where it is claimed that Turkey had “murdered” 1.5 million Armenians between 1915 and 1918.
According to the list, seven million people had been murdered in Ukraine by the former Russian leader Joseph Stalin in 1932-33, the Japanese killed 300,000 Chinese in the Nanjing massacre, six million Jews had been murdered in Nazi Germany between 1938-1945, two million people under the Pol Pot regime had been killed in Kampuchea in 1975-79, 200,000 people in Bosnia between 1992 and 1995, and 800,000 people in Rwanda in 1994 had been murdered.
The Armenian society in Armenia controls a lobby that issues a statement alleging the genocide by Turkey in the media each year prior to April 24, the accepted date for the commemoration of the alleged Armenian genocide.
