Armenian GenocidePrint Page
Plaque unveiled on the 95th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. The Armenian Genocide was recognised in the Legislative Council of South Australia on March 25, 2009 and then recognition of the Armenian, Assyrian, and Pontian Genocides by the Government of South Australia took place on April 30, 2009.
The Armenian Genocide also known as the Armenian Holocaust, the Armenian Massacres and, by Armenians, as the Great Crime refers to the deliberate and systematic destruction of the Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire during and just after World War One.
It was implemented through wholesale massacres and deportations, with the deportations consisting of forced marches under conditions designed to lead to the death of the deportees. The total number of resulting Armenian deaths is generally held to have been between one and one and a half million.
