Schiff submits Armenian Genocide Survival Stories into Congressional Record

PanARMENIAN.Net - U.S. Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) submitted four stories from survivors of the Armenian Genocide to be included in the Congressional Record – the first four of many submissions the Congressman has received as part of the new Armenian Genocide Congressional Record Project.

“It is difficult if not impossible to find an Armenian family not touched by the genocide, and this is an opportunity to make their experiences part of the national record,” Rep. Schiff said. “Through the Armenian Genocide Congressional Record Project, I hope to document the harrowing stories of the survivors in an effort to preserve their accounts and to help educate the Members of Congress now and in the future on the necessity of recognizing the Armenian Genocide.”

The Armenian Genocide Congressional Record Project, pioneered by Rep. Schiff, is part of an ongoing effort to parallel H. Res. 252, the Congressional resolution he sponsored to recognize and commemorate the genocide carried out against Armenians by the Ottoman Empire from 1915 to 1923. Rep. Schiff continues to encourage survivors of the genocide and their families from throughout the country to participate in the project by sending in the stories of what happened to their family during the genocide.
