Armenian Genocide Quotes

  • William Saroyan

    I should like to see any power of the world
    destroy this race; this small tribe of unimportant people

    whose history is ended,
    whose wars have all been fought and lost,
    whose structures have crumbled,
    whose literature is unread,
    whose music is unheard,
    whose prayers are no longer uttered.

    Go ahead, destroy this race. Let us say that it is again 1915; there is was in the world. Destroy Armenia.

    See if you can do it.

    Send them from their homes into the desert. Let them have neither bread nor water. Burn their house and their churches.

    See if they will not live again. See if they will not laugh again.
    See if you stop them from mocking the big ideas of the world.

    You sons of bitches

    Go ahead, try to destroy them.

  • Jimmy Carter

    It is generally not known in the world that, in the years preceding 1916, there was a concerted effort made to eliminate all the Armenian people, probably one of the greatest tragedies that ever befell any group. And there weren’t any Nuremberg trials.

    President of the United States of America, Jimmy Carter

  • Gerald Ford

    Mr. Speaker, with mixed emotions we mark the 50th anniversary of the Turkish genocide of the Armenian people. In taking notice of the shocking events in 1915, we observe this anniversary with sorrow in recalling the massacres of Armenians and with pride in saluting those brave patriots who survived to fight on the side of freedom during World War I. – Congressional Record, pg. 8890

    President of the United States of America, Gerald Ford

  • Ronald Reagan

    Like the genocide of the Armenians before it, and the genocide of the Cambodians which followed it, . . . the lessons of the Holocaust must never be forgotten.

    President of the United States of America, Ronald Reagan

  • President Barack Obama

    Two years ago, I criticized the Secretary of State for the firing of U.S. Ambassador to Armenia, John Evans, after he properly used the term ‘genocide’ to describe Turkey’s slaughter of thousands of Armenians starting in 1915. … as President I will recognize the Armenian Genocide.

    President of the United States of America, Barack Obama

  • Henry Morgenthau

    …Feet, hands chests were nailed to a pien of wood, nail of fingers were torn out, eyebrows were pulled out, feet were hammered with nails as they do with horses, others were living with their feet up and heads down over closets…Oh! How one would wish that all these facts were not true.

    H. Morgenthau (U.S. Ambassador in turkey) in “The Tragedy Of Armenia”(1918)
