More irrefutable Armenian Genocide evidence comes to light via Germany’s archives

July 31, 2012

Noted Turkish scholar Taner Akcam has said that the government archives of the US, Great Britain, France, and Germany, as well as Turkey, contain a wealth of Armenian Genocide documentation. (The Armenian Church also has extensive records in Yerevan and Jerusalem, but the Church’s archives are not open.)

A new window into the German archives has opened with the publication of “Alman Belgeleri: Ermeni Soykirimi 1915-1916 (German Documents: Armenian Genocide 1915-1916). This 1,000-page book is printed in Turkish. Issued on January 12, 2012 by Belge Publishing House – whose owner Ragip Zarakolu has been imprisoned and put on trial for speaking out on behalf of the Kurds and Armenians in Turkey – the book contains translations “into an extremely comprehensible and beautiful Turkish” of documents from the German Foreign Ministry archives during the First World War. First published in German in 2005, Wolfgang Gust, “the famous German journalist and writer,” put it together.

Genocide resolution nears vote on December 21
Armenian Reporter | December 18, 2010

Please don’t think to yourself that your parents or friends will contact your representatives, so you don’t need to do it to. EVERY VOTE COUNTS. Your call could make the difference to your representative in Congress, and their vote could be the deciding vote. Our leaders need to know that we care and that it’s not okay to buckle to the Turkish lobby. All that we have, we owe to our grandparents and great-grandparents. Tell your member of Congress what happened to your family members in the Armenian Genocide. They need to hear it from you.

Read my letter to President Obama telling him about my grandfather, Dr. John Karnig

The world is owed affirmation of the truth that what happened in Turkey in 1915 was Genocide. Until our leaders have the courage to acknowledge this truth we are doomed to repeat history, including genocides. The Holocaust, Darfur, and Rwanda all happened after the Armenian Genocide because the perpetrators saw that Turkey’s misdeeds were never punished and censured.

Please send this link to everyone you know and ask them to email Congress today:

The historical memory of the Turkish people 94 years later

December 14, 2009

From “Cultural genocide A bishops’ pilgrimage to Western Armenia,” published in the Armenian Reporter (www.reporter.am), December 12, 2009:

“Reflecting on those places, which we either passed by or directly visited, I consider it necessary to single out and stress something that surprised us. Every place that had been an Armenian village, despite its name being changed officially, continued to be known not by its Turkish name, but rather by its old Armenian name. The present residents – Turks, Kurds, Arabs, Alavis – all confirm the fact of their villages being Armenian. And even more, hardly anyone renounced or tried to deny the events of 1915 (olaylar) or the truth of the massacres (katliam). Amazingly some even used the expression “genocide” (soy kirimi) to define the great massacres of 1915.”
