WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today marking the anniversary of the Armenian genocide:

“I join in remembering the 1.5 million victims of the Armenian genocide, which began on this day 98 years ago with the persecution of political leaders, clergy, journalists, and other leading figures in Armenian society.  In the United States and throughout the world, Armenian communities mourn those lost and resolve never to forget – as do all who are committed to justice and human rights.”
