Default making posters for recognition,,,

1915


The Armenian genocide was the first genocide of the 20th century,,
perpetrated by the Ottoman Turkish government against its defenceless and law-abiding citizens, the Armenians, a Christian minority in a Muslim state.
For more than a quarter of a century, the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire under the leadership of Sultan Abdul Hamid II and later under the rule of the Young Turk regime suffered unspeakable abuse, torture, massacres and persecution. This resulted in the rape, murder and deportation of more than 1.5 million Armenians from their historic homeland, and the distruction of a 3000-year-old heritage and rich culture. Every year, on April 24 Armenians all over the world commemorate the murder of their nation. The murder of 1.5 million innocent and defenceless children, women, elderly and men. This is also the date on which in 1915 the Turkish government arrested over 200 Armenian poets, intellectuals, religious and community leaders in Constantinople and imprisoned them in the interior of Anatolia, where most were summarily executed.


Yeah, these are all facts that we are familiar with; we heard them from the day we were born. Here’s a website of people making posters about the Genocide. I thought it’s a good idea to make a contest where we can design our own posters about our history. THey would be dedicated to the memory of all those Armenians who suffered terrible atrocities and were murdered during the Armenian genocide. I don’t think it’s that hard to show how much me care.
here's the actual website to give you some ideas.
