The Turkish government has refused to acknowledge the genocide, which resulted in 1.5 million deaths.

Pain and disappointment are evident on the faces of protestors who took to the streets 94 years after the events of 1915. Crowds vigorously chant slogans such as, “Shame on Turkey,” and “We want Justice.”
