THE DECLINE OF THE WESTERN ARMENIAN PRESS (1900-1922)
Western Armenian neutral press of the first quarter of the 20th century displayed the ethnic, political and cultural life of Western Armenians, living in the Ottoman Empire. It was almost the last period of the history of Western Armenian print that manifested not only the reality of the Armenian communities in the western regions of the Ottoman Empire, but also the real existence of the Armenian population in western part of the Armenian Homeland - Western Armenia until the Armenian Genocide. After the genocide and patricide perpetrated against the Armenian nation in Western Armenia and the end of the First World War, Armenian press published in Smyrna and Constantinople, lost its national and spiritual bases that it ever had in the Homeland and began to function as a spiritual sphere and a means of information for the Armenians of Smyrna (until the 1922 disaster of Smyrna) and Constantinople.
