  • Atom Egoyan: Armenian Genocide fuelled the Holocaust | Public Radio of Armenia
    1915 to 1918 the former Ottoman Empire was responsible for the deaths of an estimated 1 5 million Armenians in what is now the Republic of Turkey Many of the persecuted were burned alive drowned or given poisonous drugs Others were subjected to death marches where they were forced to wander toward the Syrian Desert deprived of food and water Raphael Lemkin used these events as a reference when he first coined the word genocide in 1943 Egoyan said that as an Armenian he can relate to Remember s theme of mass murders left unresolved especially since the institutional perpetrators have never admitted guilt and the Turkish government still hasn t recognized the methodical mass murders as genocide I m bringing my own sort of history but I m also understanding the persistence of what fuelled the Holocaust he said The Ottomans committed the Armenian genocide with the oversight of the German government During his reign many of Hitler s key friends and policy makers could be directly connected to perpetrators in World War I Evidence suggests that Hitler used tactics gleaned from the Armenian genocide as a template when executing his Final Solution More and more institutions are recognizing the Armenian genocide Within the past year Pope Francis acknowledged the genocide at his service in Rome going as far as to say Concealing or denying evil is like allowing a wound to keep bleeding without bandaging it Egoyan is proud that the Catholic Church supports the plight of the Armenians though he s more pleased to hear that the German and Austrian governments have acknowledged their roles He feels that their admission of responsibility has opened a new constructive dialogue Some extraordinary things happened this year he said People are beginning to understand the genocide as a template for things that happened afterwards I used to always boycott Turkey said Egoyan As a young man the Canadian director was passionately involved in a political Armenian student group at the University of Toronto dedicated to bring awareness to issues of genocide and a destructively selective state memory This year however Egoyan attended a wedding in Turkey for the daughter of Hrant Dink the Armenian journalist assassinated by a Turkish nationalist in 2007 When the director entered Turkey for the first time he discovered a community of Armenians that were never driven out a people on the frontline of forming a new dialogue around the genocide At the time these groups gave Egoyan hope for a new dynamic in the conversation between the Turkish government and Armenians When I went in the summer all this seemed very possible Literally three weeks after I got back it all went to hell It s very scary what s happening in Turkey right now Though the dialogue process may have broken down as political tensions in Turkey increased Egoyan believes that there are enough progressive forces to shift the discussion just as he has witnessed in the 28 countries who acknowledge the genocide around
