In 1915, 80% of the Ottoman economy was in the hands of the Christianity, and in 1918 the majority has been concentrated in the hands of the Turks. In 1930 for losing the Armenian track the Turks changed the geographical names, “said Siobhan Nash-Marshall and stressed that every year on April 24 on the Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day she organizes events with students.
