Concrete is to be poured starting Wednesday for the memorial. It will be completed in time to mark the anniversary of the beginning of the genocide, which is April 24. During the genocide, as many as 1.5 million Armenians were killed from 1915 to 1923 by Ottoman Turks.

Work on the Armenian Genocide Monument at Fresno State progresses. The monument is on the Maple Mall, just south of the Satellite Student Union. Video by John Walker/The Fresno Bee
