Epilogue: Armenian Writings on the Wall.
As Stefan Ihrig shows in this first comprehensive study, many Germans sympathized with the Ottomans' longstanding repression of the Armenians and with the Turks' program of extermination during World War I. In the Nazis' version of history, the Armenian Genocide was justifiable because it had made possible the astonishing rise of the New Turkey. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
