Armenian History & Religion


In

The beginning of Christianity,


Armenia were the first country to
embrace Christianity.

The

King converted to
Christianity and so did everyone
else

Armenia was surrounded by


non-Christians countries

What rights did the Armenians


have when living under the
Ottoman empire? 70% of the Armenian
population lived in poor and
dangerous conditions in the
rural countryside
There

,Armenians were
victims to the Turkish and
Kurdish people

The

were often overtaxed


,robbed, kidnapped, and
force to convert to Islam.

Armenians as Minorities (second


citizens)

Christians were not equal to Muslims under law

Testimony by Christians against Muslims was


unacceptable

Armenians were not allowed to carry weapons

Their houses could not even look better than the


Muslims

Stages of persecution
Young

Armenian men in the army were


force to hard labor and executed.

Community

leaders and other Armenians


were deported and later executed

Why did the Genocide occur?


Armenians were an ethnic and
religious minority. Many Armenians
were targeted by Turkish
nationalistic regime because they
werent Muslims. Non-Muslim
people were victims. The ottoman
empire was the one that lead to kill
the majority of Armenians. The goal
of the young Turkish was to restore
the Turkish military and the ottoman
empires expanse and glory .To
achieve the goal, they believed they
had to get rid of all the non-Muslims
minorities. Armenians and other
minority group were killed and

How couldve been prevented?

I think the genocide could have been prevented if the Armenians


didnt rebel against the Ottoman Empire and try to create their
own country.

If the government and the Armenian people got along the


genocide wouldnt have taken place.

Another reason why this event took place is because the


Ottoman Empire was a monarchy meaning that a single person is
ruling the people.

Having a single person ruling an empire leads to taking


advantage of the peoples rights.

Does this still have consequences


today?

The entire Ottoman empire was effected by this event which lead
to there collapsing of their empire. There was only a few
Armenian left in Turkey after the genocide and as result society
and the empire continued to decline. After the genocide the
Armenians never really returned to the place of there greatest
despair.
