Even after a century, the Armenian genocide is a cornerstone of Armenian identity

In 1915, the Ottoman Empire killed more than a million Armenians in massacres and forced deportations, driving them off their lands in what is now Turkey. Many ended up in Syria, Lebanon and beyond. Armenians around the world will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the killings on April 24 with vigils, church services and family gatherings.
