The caricatures about Turkey committing the Armenian Genocide were not the first ones which were shown at the Anatole France School in Montbeliard, France.
As the Turkish Hurriyet reports, while a parent was checking his child’s school book he discovered a photo of Abdul Hamid with bloody hands and a knife in his mouth. The caricature read – Let them do their work while I kill Armenians.
To note, last week a teacher in Anatole France School showed the caricature, which depicted a man carrying a sack full of human skulls. The sack symbolizes Turkey carrying the skulls with the Armenian Genocide inscription. A person standing near is France. The man is climbing the mountain with EU flag on the top.
