Decision Of Ottoman Government On Deportation Of Armenians (May 30, 1915) Safrastyan R

The secret report of Interior Minister and the leader of the Central Committee of the Young Turks party, Mehmet Talât to Said Halim Pasha, was discussed in the Ministerial council meeting of May 30, 1915. The deportation of Armenians was approved, which had been already taking place, and a relevant resolution was passed. It was signed by seven members of the government. The original text of the “Resolution” published by Turkish historians has been widely used as a proof of a hypothesis of the Turkish official historiography as if the purpose of the deportation was only the deportation of the Western Armenians and not their massacre. Thus the Turkish translation avoided reproducing exactly the meaning of the expression of the original text, “imhâ ve izâlesi” - “exterminate and liquidate”. the atmosphere of uncertainty and fraud created around just one archival document by the representatives of official Turkish historiography arouse doubts and urges one to think that the practice of such methods can be applied in many other cases of official publications of the Ottoman archival documents in Turkey. . .



Armenian Question At Present Stage And Turkish Falsifications By Safrastyan R

THE ARMENIAN QUESTION AT THE PRESENT STAGE AND TURKISH FALSIFICATIONS

Various characterizations are being made on the Armenian Question. Thus, for example, it is noted that the Armenian Question has gone through alterations at the present stage and is regarded as a matter of recognition and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide. According to another approach, the Armenian Question has two phases; the first one is the stage of recognition and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide and the second, the elimination of the genocide consequences, that is to say, the stage of the territorial demands. The adherents of this standpoint urge that Armenians should make all their efforts to overcome successfully the first stage, namely to deal solely with recognition and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide and only then, after the successful end of this struggle, to turn to the issue on elimination of the genocide consequences. It is important to note that now, as in the past, the Armenian Question has not lost its traditional perception and stands out as the realization of the right of the Armenian people to living and having statehood in the Western and Eastern parts of its historical cradle, Armenia. Thus, the recognition of the Armenian Genocide is a part of the Armenian Question, but it doesn’t substitute the very problem and should not be considered as the first stage of the stepwise solution of the Armenian Question. There is a need to struggle simultaneously for recognition and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide and the elimination of its consequences as well as for the fair solution of the Armenian Question.

3617) Armenians of Turkey having started a new life in Armenia

Carpenter Stephan of Malatya
Issue of migration preoccupies many people in Turkey as the political atmosphere gets increasingly tenser. In a time like this, we wanted to get together with Armenians of Turkey who migrated to Armenia, the closest and most distant neighbor, during the hard periods of recent history and report their first-hand accounts. These people, who told about their lives with a great sincerity, revealed human's power and hope of starting over.

There is a long queue in front of the counter opened for the flight to Yerevan from Istanbul. Most of the people waiting for handing their baggage over are Armenian, the plane is going to Armenia and almost all passengers are speaking Turkish. When I catch the eye of the counter clerk, who are staring at the queue that he sees four times in a week, he shares the question that may be preoccupying his mind for a long time: “All of these people are going to Armenia. Really, what's the deal with Armenia?”
