Kentucky brings number of states to formally recognize Armenian Genocide to 41

PanARMENIAN.Net - Kentucky Governor Steven L. Beshear issued a proclamation recognizing the Armenian Genocide. The "Bluegrass State" proclamation brings the number of states to formally recognize the Armenian Genocide to forty-one, the Armenian National Committee of America reported.



The powerfully worded proclamation designated April 24, 2008, as "Day of Remembrance of the Armenian Genocide" in the state of Kentucky, noting that "recognition of the ninety-third anniversary of this genocide is paramount to guarding against the repetition of future genocides and educating people across the Commonwealth about the atrocities of these horrific events."
