Khloe Kardashian has marked the 102nd anniversary of the Armenian genocide with a powerful post.
The 32-year-old posted a picture of her and her sisters at the centenary of the genocide in Armenia to social media.
She wrote: “Today marks the 102-year anniversary of the Armenian genocide. In 1915, the Ottoman Empire committed mass extermination of 1.5 million Western Armenians. I am proud to be an Armenian!!!
“It is our duty to not be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation no matter their race or creed. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. It saddens me that history books don’t acknowledge such torture but my voice will be used to bring awareness to my people for being survivors!!!”
Khloe then shared a quote from Armenian-American novelist William Saroyan, writing: “‘I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered.
