Kim Kardashian will pay tribute to the victims of the Armenian genocide on a trip to the country beginning on Wednesday, according to The Guardian.
The Armenian-American reality TV star will be joined by her husband Kanye West and her sister Khloé as she makes the journey to mark the 100th anniversary of the slaughter of ethnic Armenians in the Ottoman Empire.
They will be followed by camera crews from the broadcaster E! to film several episodes of the reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but no official meetings or press conferences are planned.
Kardashian, West, their daughter North and several other members of her family arrived at Los Angeles airport to begin the pilgrimage to Armenia, where she will visit the Tsitsernakaberd Memorial in the capital, Yerevan.
Her late father Robert was a third-generation Armenian American, and on several occasions she has publicly supported international recognition of the Armenians’ systematic extermination at the hands of the Ottoman government.
