24-Apr-20155 Levon Aronian: We Will Always Remember
 

On April 24 Levon Aronian, members of the Armenian National Team and many other participants of the World Team Championship visited the Armenian Genocide Memorial to pay tribute to the 1,5 million victims.

24-Apr-20155 Garry Kasparov: We Must Be Brave Enough to Call Evil by Its Name
 

13th World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov issued a message on April 24, Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day.

“Today marks the 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide. Like all great acts of evil, it is difficult to face and it must be faced. Evil grows when we shy away from it and refuse to acknowledge it; this we know from history. So we must be honest and we must be brave enough to call evil by its name, especially this, the mother of all genocides of the 20th century.

In 2002, I wrote an article in The Wall Street Journal calling for Turkey to be admitted to the European Union if a few issues could be resolved. First among them was recognition and full investigation of the Armenian genocide of 1915. It is a great disappointment that this never came to pass.

I still hold out hope that this will happen. How can we fight against the many evils present in our world today if we do not have the courage to face an evil whose ghosts are now a century old?

Me and my family together with hundreds of thousands of other people were forced to leave Baku in 1990 to survive the massacre.

Such crimes have no statute of limitation”.
