SummaryThe Armenian Genocide of 1915 is the darkest page in the history book of the Armenian people. People, eliminated from their ancestral homeland, leave behind houses that become occupied by so called neighbors, fortresses and public buildings, which are invaded by the so called authorities and other possessions that bear no signs identifying their distinct origin, appropriated by the perpetrators. Armenian homes, houses fortresses and other structure have simply become Turkish homes, houses and possessions. There remain monuments, mostly religious archaeological structures, which are distinctly Armenian and cannot be altered as Turkish. —Publisher
