North West is packed and ready for Armenia. The little one was recently photographed while making her way through LAX with her Frozen luggage. Of course, mom, Kim Kardashian-West, and dad, Kanye West, were also present but North was clearly the star.
Kim hopes to give her daughter a lesson on her culture while in the country as the centennial anniversary of the Armenian genocide is just weeks away. It was in April 1915 that the Ottoman government killed more than 1 million Armenians in the area that is now recognized as the Republic of Turkey. The government began by arresting 250 community leaders, and carried out their extermination in two phases. Although Turkey, the successor state of the Ottoman Empire, refuses to acknowledge such mass killings as genocide, activists from around the world continue to urge the country to recognize the act for what it was: annihilation.
Mrs. West has expressed her support for the various efforts of activists, and has spread awareness about the historical event on social media. Observance of the Armenian massacre will take place on April 24, 2015. North is Kim and Kanye’s only child.
