History!

1. The Armenian Genocide also known as the Armenian Holocaust, the Armenian Massacres and, traditionally by Armenians, as Medz Yeghern was the Ottoman government's systematic extermination of its minority Armenian subjects inside their historic homeland, which lies within the present-day Republic of Turkey. The number of victims is estimated at between 800,000 and 1.5 million. The starting date is conventionally held to be 24 April 1915, the day Ottoman authorities rounded up, arrested, and deported some 250 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders from Constantinople to Ankara, the majority of whom were eventually murdered.


2.

Alexander the Great attacks Persia and defeats Darius III, but never conquers Armenia. As a result, Armenia regains its independence from Persia.

Compare and Contrast

1. U.S. religion and Armenia's are different but similar. Most percentage of both countries are following Christians. They both read the Holy Bible, they also both go to worship in a church. Some things that are different with their religion is that 13% do NOT go to a church or believe in a Jesus. Another difference in their religion is Armenian's go to a church called Armenia Church where they worship and we go to just Church for worship.


2. Have you thought about how your food that you eat and how Armenia's peoples food taste the same and different. The food for them and us have the same meaning, they both feed and help people stay alive and live. It also they use some of the same stuff we do to eat. Like, vegetables,meat, and bread. Some differences on the food is that their fast food restaurants are so SLOW and the best food comes from their very houses. At least some of our places serve some good food! ( Chick Fil A) Cafes kind of disappeared in the U.S. in Armenia that is what is on almost every sidewalk or park.
