Boulder To Recognize Armenian Genocide
Boulder To Recognize Armenian Genocide –
Boulder, Colorado – Boulder will recognize April 24 as a day of remembrance of the Armenian genocide.
City Councilman George Karakehian opened the City Council meeting Tuesday night by reading a resolution in support of the Day of Remembrance, which will be recognized at the state level as well.
Karakehian, who is of Armenian descent, choked up slightly as he noted that Hitler famously said, “Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?” as he justified a policy of genocide in Europe. Karakehian asked the people of Boulder to remember the Armenians.
The City of Boulder is the Home Rule Municipality that is the county seat and the most populous municipality of Boulder County, and the 11th most populous municipality in the U.S. state of Colorado. The population of the City of Boulder was 97,385 at the 2010 United States Census.
