History Written and Deleted


From [ www.armenialiberty.org ] Wednesday 26, January 2005:

“Pressure from Turkey has resulted in the removal of a reference to the Armenian genocide from a German school curriculum, reports said Wednesday.

The eastern German state of Brandenburg has eliminated half a sentence on the Armenians included in ninth and tenth grade history classes after a Turkish diplomat complained to state Prime Minister Matthias Platzeck, the newspaper Die Welt reported.

In a chapter entitled ‘War, Technology and Civilian Populations’ the school book text said ‘for example, the genocide of the Armenians population of Anatolia.’ That passage has now been removed from school textbooks, the newspaper said. “
