Central Council of Jews in Germany calls for Genocide recognition

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Central Council of Jews in Germany has called on the German government to recognize the Armenian Genocide, according to Asbarez.

“One hundred years ago, the government of the Ottoman Empire ordered the deportation of one million Armenians. They were murdered directly, or died of starvation and dehydration in the desert,” Central Council President Josef Schuster told Der Tagesspiegel. “These terrible events should be called what they were: a genocide.”

Schuster reminded that the Armenian Genocide later served Adolf Hitler and his Nazis as a blueprint for the Holocaust.

The main German parties, Christian Democratic Union and the Social Democratic Party, have so far been reluctant to use the term Genocide, fearing threats from Turkey.
