Boulder, Colorado, to recognize Armenian Genocide

The city of Boulder, Colorado,  will recognize April 24 as a day of remembrance of the Armenian Genocide, Daily Camera reports.

City Councilman George Karakehian opened the City Council meeting Tuesday night by reading a resolution in support of the Day of Remembrance, which will be recognized at the state level as well.

Karakehian, who is of Armenian descent, choked up slightly as he noted that Hitler famously said, “Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?” as he justified a policy of genocide in Europe. Karakehian asked the people of Boulder to remember the Armenians.
