"WHO, AFTER ALL, SPEAKS TODAY OF THE ANNIHILATION OF THE ARMENIANS"

"When the Turkish authorities gave the orders for these deportations, they were merely giving the death warrant to a whole race; they understood this well, and, in their conversations with me, they made no particular attempt to conceal the fact" - Henry Morgenthau, U.S. Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire (1913 - 1916)


"Whatever crimes the most perverted instincts of the human mind can devise, and whatever refinements of persecution and injustice the most debased imagination can conceive, became the daily misfortunes of this devoted people. I am confident that the whole history of the human race contains on such horrible episode as this"

"The story of the Armenian Genocide is one of almost unrelieved horror at the hands of Turkish soldiers and policemen, who enthusiastically carried out their Government's orders to exterminate a race of Christian people in the middle east"
-Robert Fisk
"The Great War for Civilization"

The word Genocide was coined(created) in 1943 by Dr. Raphael Lemkin; a Polish Jew who lost over 40 members of his family in the Holocaust.

"I became interested in Genocide, because it happened so many times, it happened to the Armenians, and after the Armenians, Hitler took action." - Dr. Raphael Lemkin

in the 2nd video there are interviews with Turkish intellectuals/professors who openly speak about the genocide, fed up with their governments hypocrite ways and denials, from 46:00 - 49:00 shows Turkish intellectuals and publishers inside Turkey, who were jailed, threatened, attacked and BOMBED just because they told the truth about the genocide, or just published a book about the Genocide in Turkey.

in April 2003 the ministry of national education of the republic of Turkey issued a directive to ALL schools that they have to organize teaching to show that the Armenian Genocide and its claims that such things occurred, were groundless, that they never occurred. In other words, Official denial by the state, taught as part of the carriculum in the national schools of Turkey.

Imagine for a moment the history books of the western world being printed without having the story of WW1 in there. Here is a significant country in our world spending an enormous ammount of its money, of its resources, on one subject; "DONT YOU MENTION THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE!" and that is what their ambassadors and their designated representatives, including in academia, are busy doing all around the world.

Anybody can tell you of conference after conference, book after book, efforts to produce a TV-program or a movie about the Armenian genocide, where the Turkish government has intervened at every conceivable level to try to silence it. One of the most famous examples occurred when movie giant MGM announced it was making a movie on the Armenian Genocide in 1935 called "The 40 Days of Musa Dagh" but as soon as the news reached Turkey, the US State Department was contacted and pressured by Turkey into all but forcing MGM to shut the production down, which it did.

52:40 2nd video "Even a child can tell you they are being dishonest. It is not something you can hide." - Turkish man in Turkey (in the beginning of the documentary theres a few Turks whos grandfathers told them the stories of what happened in the Genocide)

Please watch all 3 videos, 2nd one has the most information and is the longest, but is well worth it, it shows Armenian AND Turkish intellectuals, professors, scholars and others speaking about the Armenian Genocide. Thank you everyone for watching my videos and learning about the Armenian Genocide.
