Arsène Tchakarian: French Resistance fighter dies aged 101
Arsène Tchakarian took part in anti-Nazi sabotage and ambushes

The last member of an immigrant group who fought the Nazis for the French Resistance has died aged 101.

Arsène Tchakarian escaped a Nazi crackdown in which 22 of the group’s fighters were shot by the German occupation forces in Paris in 1944.

He was awarded France’s highest honour.

President Emmanuel Macron tweeted that Tchakarian, an ethnic Armenian, was „a hero of the Resistance and tireless witness whose voice resonated strongly to the very end“.

Tchakarian only became a French citizen in 1958. He was granted several medals for gallantry, including the prestigious Legion of Honour in 2012.

How did he resist?

Both Tchakarian and Manouchian were communists, like many of the partisans who resisted the Nazi occupation of Europe.

The collaborationist French Vichy regime issued a „red poster“ in February 1944 after the execution of Manouchian and his comrades, intended to convince the public that the fighters were just a foreign criminal gang.

Tchakarian managed to flee to Bordeaux, where he remained active in the Resistance until France was liberated in August 1944.

‚Because we loved France‘

After the war Tchakarian said the guerrillas were „not heroes“, but had „resisted because we could do it: we didn‘t have families or jobs.

„And we resisted because we loved France. It had adopted us.“

In later life he campaigned to get the Ottoman Turkish massacres of Armenians during World War One recognised internationally as genocide.

In 2014, the then French President, François Hollande, inaugurated a Missak Manouchian park in the Armenian capital Yerevan, with his Armenian counterpart at the time, Serzh Sargsyan.

Bundestag: Gedenken an den Völkermord an den Armeniern am 02.06.2016

The Armenian Genocide began 101 years ago today

On the night of April 24, 1915, the Turkish government placed under arrest over 200 Armenian community leaders in Constantinople. Hundreds more were apprehended soon after.

Adolf Hitler is quoted as saying, eight days before invading Poland in 1939, “Who today, after all, speaks of the annihilation of the Armenians?” He was speaking of being inspired by the 1915 genocide of 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman Empire as he began his own systematic campaign of destruction. Today, the Armenian genocide remains fresh and relevant in the minds of Armenians around the world.

On the night of April 24, 1915, the Turkish government placed under arrest over 200 Armenian community leaders in Constantinople. Hundreds more were apprehended soon after. They were all sent to prison in the interior of Anatolia, where most were summarily executed. The Young Turk regime had long been planning the Armenian Genocide and reports of atrocities being committed against the Armenians in the eastern war zones had been filtering in during the first months of 1915. The Ministry of War had already acted on the government’s plan by disarming the Armenian recruits in the Ottoman Army, reducing them to labor battalions and working them under conditions equaling slavery. The incapacitation and methodic reduction of the Armenian male population, as well as the summary arrest and execution of the Armenian leadership marked the earliest stages of the Armenian Genocide. These acts were committed under the cover of a news blackout on account of the war and the government proceeded to implement its plans to liquidate the Armenian population with secrecy. Therefore, the Young Turks regime’s true intentions went undetected until the arrests of April 24. As the persons seized that night included the most prominent public figures of the Armenian community in the capital city of the Ottoman Empire, everyone was alerted about the dimensions of the policies being entertained and implemented by the Turkish government. Their death presaged the murder of an ancient civilization. April 24 is, therefore, commemorated as the date of the unfolding of the Armenian Genocide.

The Armenian Genocide was centrally planned and administered by the Turkish government against the entire Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire. It was carried out during W.W.I between the years 1915 and 1918. The Armenian people were subjected to deportation, expropriation, abduction, torture, massacre, and starvation. The great bulk of the Armenian population was forcibly removed from Armenia and Anatolia to Syria, where the vast majority was sent into the desert to die of thirst and hunger. Large numbers of Armenians were methodically massacred throughout the Ottoman Empire. Women and children were abducted and horribly abused. The entire wealth of the Armenian people was expropriated. After only a little more than a year of calm at the end of W.W.I, the atrocities were renewed between 1920 and 1923, and the remaining Armenians were subjected to further massacres and expulsions. In 1915, thirty-three years before UN Genocide Convention was adopted, the Armenian Genocide was condemned by the international community as a crime against humanity.

It is estimated that one and a half million Armenians perished between 1915 and 1923. There were an estimated two million Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire on the eve of W.W.I. Well over a million were deported in 1915. Hundreds of thousands were butchered outright. Many others died of starvation, exhaustion, and epidemics which ravaged the concentration camps. Among the Armenians living along the periphery of the Ottoman Empire many at first escaped the fate of their countrymen in the central provinces of Turkey. Tens of thousands in the east fled to the Russian border to lead a precarious existence as refugees. The majority of the Armenians in Constantinople, the capital city, were spared deportation. In 1918, however, the Young Turk regime took the war into the Caucasus, where approximately 1,800,000 Armenians lived under Russian dominion. Ottoman forces advancing through East Armenia and Azerbaijan here too engaged in systematic massacres. The expulsions and massacres carried by the Nationalist Turks between 1920 and 1922 added tens of thousands of more victims. By 1923 the entire landmass of Asia Minor and historic West Armenia had been expunged of its Armenian population. The destruction of the Armenian communities in this part of the world was total.

Place: Stockholm, Sweden.
Date: 09/04/2016

Turkish National Association (TRF) Vice Chairman, Barbaros Leylani, made himself yesterday guilty for hate speech in Stockholm during a demonstration: „Death to Armenians !!“.

With government grants from the Swedish taxpayers, TRF incited against Armenians and calls for further genocide. TRF has been guilty of similar statements against other ethnic groups in the past and this shows once again that the dream of eradicating Christian Armenians are still live. Among Turkish-Swedes in Sweden. Very troubling.

Nowadays, neither Armenians, Kurds, Greeks and Syriacs etc. needs to demonstrate against the Turkish state. Turkish National Association and its supporters clearly show what they‘re made of.

Presseerklärung der Volkshochschule Aachen zum Angriff auf die Ausstellung

Presseerklärung der Volkshochschule Aachen zum Angriff auf die Ausstellung
„1915-2015. Armenische Architektur und Genozid“ der Deutsch-Armenischen Gesellschaft
im VHS-Gebäude Peterstraße.

Am 29. Januar 2016, dem letzten Tag der Ausstellung „1915- 2015. Armenische Architektur und Genozid“ der Deutsch- Armenischen Gesellschaft (DAG) in der Volkshochschule Aachen, wurde eines der ausgestellten Exponate von einem unbekannten Täter mit einem Messer attackiert und massiv beschädigt.
Die Polizei hat den Vorgang aufgenommen, die Deutsch-Armenische Gesellschaft erstattete inzwischen Anzeige gegen Unbekannt. Da die Vermutung naheliegt, dass die Tat einen politischen Hintergrund haben könnte, wurde durch die Polizei der Staatsschutz eingeschaltet.

Die Ausstellung war Teil der Reihe „Heimat“ der Volkshochschule Aachen und gehört in den Rahmen der Gedenkveranstaltungen aus Anlass des Völkermordes an den Armeniern, der vor 100 Jahren begann. Die Ausstellung wurde erfolgreich und ohne Zwischenfälle in vielen Städten der Bundesrepublik Deutschland
gezeigt. Der Vandalismus in der Volkshochschule Aachen ist nicht nur für die DAG einmalig, sondern auch für die VHS Aachen.

Der Täter zerstörte ausgerechnet jenes Exponat, auf dem die armenische Kathedrale im südostanatolischen Urfa abgebildet ist.In dieser Kirche wurden im Winter 1895 3.000 Armenier, die sich vor Pogromen hierher geflüchtet hatten, bei lebendigem Leibe verbrannt. Der Begriff „Holocaust“, der ursprünglich Brandopfer
bezeichnet, wurde damals mit Blick auf diese Tat erstmalig auf Massenmorde angewandt.

Die Volkshochschule Aachen verurteilt diesen Akt des Vandalismus aufs Schärfste.

Die Deutsch-Armenische Gesellschaft hat angekündigt, eine eigene Presseerklärung zu versenden.
