About

This page contains some common arguments employed in the denial of the Armenian Genocide. Rebuttals and issues with the arguments are shown in blue..



"The Turkish Government vehemently disputes the Genocide charge."

"Vehemently disputing" any charge does not prove one's innocence.

Link : www.armeniapedia.org/wiki/Common Denialist Arguments (part 1)#DenialistArgument1




"The events in 1915 were ethnic cleansing, not Genocide."

The jurist who coined the word Genocide was Raphael Lemkin ]. His concept of the crime was based on the Armenian Genocide. In 1997 the International Association of Genocide Scholars (IAGS) unanimously passed a formal resolution affirming the Armenian Genocide.

Link : www.armeniapedia.org/wiki/Common Denialist Arguments (part 1)#DenialistArgument2




"If it really was Genocide, then where are the Armenian mass graves ?"

This is a question the Turkish government must answer as these deported Armenians were under the duty of care of the Ottoman Government. This map shows the places of mass killings & deportation routes.
Places of mass killings & deportation routes. (Armenica.org)


Link : www.armeniapedia.org/wiki/Common Denialist Arguments (part 1)#DenialistArgument3




"If there really was a Genocide then Armenia would have taken Turkey to International court by now."

Armenia's inaction on the legal front at this point in time does not imply the Ottoman Empire is innocent of the charge of Genocide.

Link : www.armeniapedia.org/wiki/Common Denialist Arguments (part 1)#DenialistArgument4




"Census records show the there weren't 1.5 million Armenians in the Empire on the eve of WW1."

Even if that is correct, how does that imply the Ottoman Empire is innocent of the charge of Genocide.

"Armenia won't open their archives"

Armenia's archives are open and have been for a number of years. Contact details can be found on their National archives website. http://www.armarchives.am/en/cover/0/
