Wlodimir Ledochowski's 1st Holocaust 96 Years Ago Today

Became Black Pope February 11, 1915

Against Armenians- April 24, 1915- just 73 days into his reign as Superior General

Armenian Genocide[1] (Armenian: Հայոց Ցեղասպանություն, translit.: Hayoc’ C’eġaspanout’youn; Turkish: Ermeni Soykırımı and Ermeni Kıyımı)—also known as the Armenian Holocaust, the Armenian Massacres and, by Armenians, as the Great Crime (Մեծ Եղեռն, Mec Yeġeṙn, Armenian pronunciation: [mɛts jɛˈʁɛrn])—refers to the deliberate and systematic destruction of the Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire during and just after World War I.[2] It was implemented through wholesale massacres and deportations, with the deportations consisting of forced marches under conditions designed to lead to the death of the deportees. The total number of resulting Armenian deaths is generally held to have been between one and one and a half million.[3][4][5][6][7] Other ethnic groups were similarly attacked by the Ottoman Empire during this period, including Assyrians and Greeks, and some scholars consider those events to be part of the same policy of extermination.[8][9][10]

It is widely acknowledged to have been one of the first modern genocides,[11][12][13] as scholars point to the systematic, organized manner in which the killings were carried out to eliminate the Armenians,[14] and it is the second most-studied case of genocide after the Holocaust.[15] The word genocide[16] was coined in order to describe these events.[17][18]

The starting date of the genocide is conventionally held to be April 24, 1915, the day that Ottoman authorities arrested some 250 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders in Constantinople.[19][20] Thereafter, the Ottoman military uprooted Armenians from their homes and forced them to march for hundreds of miles, depriving them of food and water, to the desert of what is now Syria. Massacres were indiscriminate of age or gender, with rape and other sexual abuse commonplace.[21] The majority of Armenian diaspora communities were founded as a result of the Armenian genocide.

I forgot to put also the Ottoman empire as one of the "excellent" victims of (Leodchowsky) WWI. Don't misunderstood i.e. that I justify the massacre of Armenians, which if i m not wrong, where a particular kind of heretic Orthodoxies. Together Germany (Prussian ruled), together Austria (the secular hand of rome but with the heritage of the secular privileges of the emperor on papal elections), with Orthodox Romanov empire, we have also the Ottoman empire....

We have four models of secular or other religiuos kind of "universality" wiped away at the end of WWI!!!!!!
Isn't incredible??????
After 1918 FOUR kind of universalism were disintegrated, leaving only the universalims (= catholicism, a greek words) of ROME in Eurasia!!!!!!

Don't forget that in the Balkans the Ottoman empire, was mostly tolerant!!!! It was induced in that massacre surely by the Jesuitical thirsty of destruction of any kind of competitor to the universalism of Rome!!!
