Ohio became 40th state to recognize Armenian Genocide

PanARMENIAN.Net - On April 17 Ohio Governor Ted Strickland signed an order on recognizing the Armenian Genocide. Ohio became the 40th U.S. state to recognize the Armenian Genocide, the PanARMENIAN.Net journalist was told in the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA). The powerfully worded proclamation calls on "Ohioans to honor those who died in the Armenian Genocide, conceived and carried out by the Ottoman Empire, by recognizing their suffering resulting from the deportation of nearly 2 million Armenians." It also underlines the importance for collective responsibility to focus the world's attention on human rights abuses, ethnic cleansing, and genocide. Commenting on signing the order, Strickland stated, "We have designated April 24 as the Ohio Day of Remembrance for those who suffered under the Armenian Genocide 92 years ago. I join Ohioans in remembering the victims and continuing our commitment to justice and human dignity across the world."
