Let them do their work while I kill Armenians – Abdul Hamid’s caricature in Fren

00:04, 25.04.2012 Region: World News, Turkey Theme: Society

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.

The world commemorates on April 24 the 97th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, the first genocide of the 20th century.

Commemoration actions are held in all states, people remember this monstrous crime against humanity as over one and a half million innocent Armenians were massacred in the Ottoman Empire, while hundreds of thousands were tortured and deported.

The fact of the Armenian Genocide is recognized by many states. It was first recognized in 1965 by Uruguay. In general, the Armenian Genocide in Ottoman Turkey has already been recognized by Russia, France, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Lithuania, Slovakia, Switzerland, Sweden, Greece, Cyprus, Lebanon, Canada, Venezuela, Argentina, and 42 U.S. states.
