HACKENSACK, N.J. -- Bergen County Clerk John Hogan joined with other regional officials and residents on Monday, April 25, to mark a somber anniversary -- Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day.

County Executive Jim Tedesco and members the Board of Chosen Freeholders, and members of the Knights and Daughters of Vartan "gathered to observe a day of remembrance and reflection in somber recognition of the great tragedy known as the Armenian Genocide," Hogan noted in a Tuesday Facebook post.

The Ottoman Empire -- in territory currently known as Turkey -- systematically deported and killed its minority Armenian subjects, beginning in 1915. The number of victims of the genocide is estimated as between 800,000 and 1.5 million people. You can learn more about it here.
