AceShowbiz - Kim Kardashian shared a heartfelt post on social media as the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution recognising the Armenian Genocide of 1915.
The reality star is half-Armenian on her late father Robert Kardashian's side, and often speaks passionately of her roots, having previously raised awareness of the 1915 mass killings of an estimated 1.5 million citizens by the Ottoman Empire on her TV show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians".
Earlier this month, Kim and her sister Kourtney Kardashian took their kids to see where they were baptised, and on Wednesday, October 30 the KKW Beauty mogul took to Instagram to share photographs from the trip, as she celebrated the historic development.
"Yesterday was such a huge victory for the Armenian people when the US House of Representatives acknowledged the Armenian Genocide!" Kim, 38, wrote. "This photo was taken of me and my children this month in Armenia."
In the image, the mother-of-four poses with her children North, six, Saint, three, Chicago, 21 months, and five-month-old Psalm. Absent is Kim's husband Kanye West, who sat out on the trip.
The recognition of the genocide was passed by a 405-to-11 vote.
