Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Armenia


Just two weeks after visiting Armenia with several members of her famous family, Kim Kardashian took to social media to remember those whose lives were lost 100 years ago.

"Today marks the 100 year anniversary of Armenian Genocide! I am proud to now say I have been to Armenia," Kim wrote along with a photo of her with Khloe Kardashian, her cousins Kara and Kourtney, and Kanye West visiting the genocide memorial at Tsitsernakaberd in Yerevan.

"I have seen the memorials and the people who survived and I am so proud of how strong the Armenian people are!"

Kim continued, "I am saddened that still 100 years later not everyone has recognized that 1.5 million people were murdered. But proud of the fact that I see change and am happy many people have started to recognize this genocide! We won't give up, we will be recognized by all soon! #NeverForget #ProudArmenian."

During their trip to Armenia, Kim and Khloé also had a meeting with Armenian Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan shortly after visiting the Mother Armenia statue in Yerevan.

"Khloe & I visiting Mother Armenia yesterday. This statue reminds visitors of the strong female figures in Armenian history. I love how powerful women are and respected so much in our culture!" Kim shared with her legions of followers on Instagram.

Kourtney Kardashian was noticeably absent from the family trip, considering she was first slated to join her sisters, but explained to fans why she opted to stay in America.

"I didn't end up going to Armenia because it was making me too anxious with three young children," she wrote on Instagram.

"I do wish that I could have experienced the trip with my sisters but I do know that we will all go to Armenia together someday."

And while she wasn't able to travel with them, she did post a heartfelt message on Instagram to honor today:

"Today marks 100 years since the Armenian genocide. I have been told about the genocide since I was old enough to understand it by my father and grandmother. Today is about recognizing and remembering all of the 1.5 million people who were killed."
