And this...

Yesterday was also Armenian Martyr's Day. DuringWWI the newly installed "democratic" government of Kemal Attaturk carried out a systematic extermination of Christian Armenians for many of the same reasons that the Jews were persecuted by the Nazis.

Take a moment to remember the lessons of their sacrifice as well.

More information on the Armenian genocide can be found here, here, and here, and my thoughts from last year's remembrance are here.
