YEREVAN (YERKIR) - The Pennsylvania House of
Representatives unanimously passed a resolution
designating April 24, 2004 as "Pennsylvania's Day of
Remembrance of the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923,"
reported the Armenian National Committee (ANC) of
Pennsylvania.

The resolution identifies the Ottoman Empire as the
perpetrators of a
genocide that claimed the lives of one and a half
million Armenian men,
women, and children from 1915 to 1923. It also
acknowledges that modern Turkey continues to deny and
distort the facts of the Armenian Genocide.

In addition to the Pennsylvania House Resolution, the
Pittsburgh City
Council passed a proclamation declaring April 24, 2004
"A Day of
Remembrance" for the victims of the Armenian Genocide.
