Turkish textbooks should address Armenian Genocide: German MP

PanARMENIAN.Net - Co-chairman of the German political party Alliance '90/The Greens, MP Cem Ozdemir said at a parliament sitting that Germany turns a blind eye to the Genocide of Armenians, Assyrians and Greeks perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire.

Ozdemir previously authored and introduced a resolution to recognize the Armenian Genocide which will be discussed in the Bundestag in early June.

“If the Armenian Genocide of 1915 was spoken out on, no ethnic minorities would have been persecuted or attacked afterwards,” Ozdemir said.

“If Armenians hadn't been slaughtered, Van would have become the Paris of the East.”

“The Turkish textbooks should feature the truth about the Genocide, and Talaat pasha should by no means be a hero for children,” he added.
