AHEPA calls on President Biden to recognize the Greek Genocide

The American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA) sent a formal request to US President Joe Biden, asking for the United States government to recognize the Greek Genocide.

In a June 7 letter, Supreme President George G. Horiates wrote that it is time the US government “recognizes the Greek Genocide that occurred 1914 to 1923 as a matter of affirming a historical truth and upholding a commitment to human rights as well a matter of education to prevent future atrocities from occurring.”

“I write to request for the United States to formally recognize the Greek Genocide, the systematic extermination of between one million and 1.5 million indigenous Greek minority of the Ottoman Empire,” the AHEPA President wrote.
