Aurora Mardiganian

Armenian girl at the age of fourteen saw her entire family get slaughtered as she was made to watch. After that she forced to march over 1,400 miles, during which she was kidnapped and sold into the slave markets, Aurora ended in the hands of Ottman Officers and  was brutally raped and tortured by Turkish, Kurdish and German officers for two years. Besides being raped , she was physically tortured because she did not renounce her Christian faith.

This was not a unique story as it is shared by tens of thousands of other Armenian, Assyrian and Greek women during the Armenian Genocide. but was is unique is what happened next. She stayed strong and managed to escape and eventually end up in USA. 

Knowing her fight was not over, In 1918, the book “Ravished Armenia” based on her story was published in USA, written by her with the help of Harvey Gates. Then, by the plot of this book, the first film about the Armenian Genocide was produced in Hollywood, where she came up as a screenwriter and actress.

Questions about the Armenian Genocide that I wish were frequently asked
1. What is the Armenian Genocide?
The Armenian Genocide was the systematic deportation and massacre of 1.5 million of the 2 million Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire.
2. Why is April 24th the anniversary?
On April 24th, 1915, Turkish officials rounded up hundreds of Armenian community leaders and executed them. They would be the first of many Armenians to be murdered in the coming years.
3. I heard Armenians made this all up. How can we be so sure there actually was a genocide?
The evidence is so overwhelming to a point where the only historians to make claims that there was no genocide were found to have gotten huge research grants from the Turkish government. The Armenian Genocide is historical fact. This isn’t a debate.
4. What was “systematic” about the Genocide?
The Young Turks had a plan from the beginning and they executed that plan just as it was drawn up. First they drafted the Armenian male population between the ages of 20-45 into their army. Then they “requested” the Armenian population to turn their guns over to the government to help in the war effort.(The genocide took place during World War 1)  At this point, Armenian soldiers in the Turkish Army are deprived of their uniforms and arms. And then the events on April 24th, 1915 that I described earlier transpired. After that, the army began killing at will. Armenian homes had no means of defense. Mass deportations ended in mass graves.
5. Who or what are the Young Turks?
The Young Turks was a Turkish Nationalist Reform Party. It was led by Talaat Pasha, Enver Pasha, and Djemal Pasha. These three together were known as a dictatorial triumvirate.
6. Why won’t the United States recognize the genocide?
This may seem so small and so simple but it’s the truth… Army bases. The US doesn’t want to lose Turkey as an ally because they’d lose a critical/strategic safe zone in the middle east if they did. You could also argue they just don’t want to stir up trouble in a region of the world where more trouble doesn’t need stirring up.
This is just a quick little summary. If anyone has anymore questions regarding the Genocide please ask me! I will answer everything to the best of my knowledge!

As Jews, we should remember that it isn’t only us who went through this. We weren’t the first, and we haven’t been the last. Armenia, The Holocaust, Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda and Darfur… When we say never again, we should stand by that… and we should refuse to let the world stand by and let them happen. Not to us. Not to Anybody.

People need to recognize because history repeats
