1583) Army Commander's July 1915 Order to Protect Armenians

"...[T]hese records were at the time compiled for strictly internal use, i.e. for in-house consideration, and were not intended for public consumption, [so that] one may be reasonably safe in declaring the evidence obtained thusly as incontestable."

Vahakn Dadrian, “The signal facts surrounding the Armenian genocide and the Turkish denial syndrome," The Journal of Genocide Research (2003, June, pp. 269-279; regarding German internal reports.)

Let's take a look at one Ottoman army report, prepared internally, and must "thusly" be regarded as "incontestable":


Coded Message received by the Acting Supreme Command from Erzurum

" Orders and instructions were issued not to give way to insults or humiliation of Armenians being transferred to inner regions and for strict protection of their properties and goods. The same orders are reiterated 17/18 July 1331 (30/31 July 1915)

Third Army Commander

Mahmut Kamil "


"These Ottomans should have been totally out of their minds !!! They send people on death marches but worry about their insults, humiliation and protection of properties! Which one are we to trust: the written authentic document or the presumed scenario ?"
