The greatest atrocity that took place against civilians during World War I was the Armenian Genocide. An estimated 1,500.000 Armenians, more than half of the Armenian population living on its historic homeland, were destroyed on the orders of the Turkish leaders of the Ottoman Empire during the years 1915-1923.

He served as the principal of St. Mary’s Armenian Araradian Saturday school for many years and has been serving as a choir member at St. Mary’s church in Livingston, New Jersey since 2001.

Mardirossian stated, “Being the Son of The Armenian Genocide survivors, I do feel obliged to speak-up to the world the atrocities that the Turkish Ottoman Empire's leaders committed against innocent people, just because of their ethnicity and religious beliefs and through public awareness, to prevent future genocides in the world
