CRAG E-Alert - 27 July 2005

Dear Friends & Supporters:

Germany to start year with studying Armenian Genocide

Source: /PanARMENIAN.Net

The first textbook about the Genocide has been issued in Germany. German Minister of Education Holger Rupprecht presented the book titled "Genocides and state crimes with use of violence in 20-th century as school lesson topic."

The idea of compiling such a textbook emerged this February, when German forces launched a hot discussion on the Armenian Genocide. The textbook written by scientists with the assistance of the Bochum University staff consists of two parts.

The first tells about the principal signs and causes of genocide while the second presents the history of the Rwanda genocide and the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire. The first schoolchildren to study the genocides of the 20-th century will be the pupils of the schools of Brandenburg.

For background information, kindly refer to our d-base e-alert dated 17 June 2005 under heading (CC) that is also posted with all previous d-base e-alerts on the CRAG website.
