Naples Daily News Publishes Letter to Editor on Armenian Genocide

NAPLES, FL – Earlier this month, Elsie Nigohosian of Marco Island, FL wrote a letter to the editor of the Naples Daily News entitled “Armenians Marked the 102nd Anniversary of Genocide.” Nigohosian’s column, which appeared in the May 10, 2017 edition of the paper, gracefully and concisely articulated the facts and significance of the Armenian Genocide to southwest Florida readers.

“Often referred to as the first genocide of the 20th century, it spanned the years between 1915 and 1923 when 1.5 million Armenian men, women and children were mercilessly slaughtered on their ancestral lands by the Ottoman Turkish Empire,” she wrote.

Nigohosian touched on historical aspects, as well as former U.S. Ambassador Samantha Powers’ recent apology to Armenian Americans. Nigohosian also highlighted the feature film ‘The Promise’ and the Turkish government’s attempt at artistic denial.

“We Armenians will continue to fight for the truth to be told. And we implore all of humanity to join us,” Nigohosian wrote.
