The Armenian Genocide took place between 1915 and 1923 in a region that is now Turkey. During that time, a total of 1.5 to 2 million Armenian men, women and children died as a result of forced deportations and mass killings.

The year 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of the genocide. There will be large commemoration ceremonies in Los Angeles and worldwide in April. Los Angeles County currently has the world’s largest population of Armenians outside of Armenia.

Los Angeles City Councilmember Paul Krekorian, chairman of the Budget and Finance Committee, represents Council District 2, which includes North Hollywood, Studio City, Valley Village and other communities in the east San Fernando Valley. In 2009, Krekorian became the first Armenian-American to be elected to the City Council.
