The Armenian Genocide was Ottomanball's systematic extermination of its minority ethnic Armeniaballs subjects inside their historic homeland, which lies within part of modern Turkeyball's territory. The genocide started in 1915 and was carried out during World War I, though Armenians had been sporadically removed before then since the 1890's. The Armenian Genocide consisted of both mass murder and the deportation of ethnic Armeniaballs, as well as Assyriaballs and Pontic Greeceballs. It is believed that Nazi Germanyball's genocide known as the Holocaust was inspired from this event in history.
Nowadays, Turkeyball denies that the genocide happened and only 29 countryballs recognize it as a genocide, as well as many stateballs in USAball. Most of the others avoid mentioning it so that Turkeyball doesn't throw a tantrum, or because he bribed them. Though not involved, Azerbaijanball denies it because of his hatred for Armeniaball. The rest of countryballs neither outright deny it nor accept it.
In the Polandball comics, the Armenian Genocide is generally either directly or indirectly mentioned to Armeniaball either by Turkeyball or Azerbaijanball as hating Armeniaball, This is because Armeniaball views the genocide as a must-recognize event, thus Armenian nationalism. Armeniaball also recognizes the Assyrian and Greek genocides, and they in turn recognize the Armenian genocide.
