Khloé Kardashian shared a touching Instagram post Friday on the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Armenian genocide. In 1915, 1.5 million Armenians were killed in Turkey, a fact the Turkish government still denies and downplays. Kardashian, 30, took to her social media page to spread awareness and share that she is proud of her Armenian heritage.

“Today marks the 100-year anniversary of the Armenian genocide. Knowledge is power! If we know better than hopefully we shall do better,” she began her lengthy post. “Genocides, massacres, human slaughter ... are despicable acts!!”

The youngest Kardashian sister recently traveled to Armenia with sister Kim, pledging to help spread awareness about the genocide while they visited with Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan. On Friday, she stayed true to her promise.

“Educating people as to what happened in history is our duty,” she wrote. “It is also our duty to not be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation no matter their race or creed. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. I am proud to be Armenian and I won't be silenced or made to believe the stories of our ancestors are ‘exaggerated.’”

“I pray that the moral universe ultimately will bend towards justice,” Kardashian finished her post, referencing a quote from Martin Luther King Jr. “Today let's respect the eternal memory of those who perished in this undeniable act of hate.”

Kim, 34, also took to Twitter to share the message. In a series of tweets, she talked about the genocide and also affirmed that she was a proud Armenian.

But the Armenian genocide isn’t the only thing the Kardashian family will recognize Friday. It’s also the same day Bruce Jenner’s highly anticipated interview with Diane Sawyer airs. It’s long been rumored he’s been transitioning into womanhood, and he’s expected to talk about it on “Bruce Jenner: The Interview.”
