Lammert on the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Massacre

On Friday, 24 April 2015 in the Bundestag, President Norbert Lammert classified the deportations and massacre of the Armenian people as a genocide. Due to their own experiences, he said, Germans can encourage others to face their history: “self-critical commitment to the truth is essential for reconciliation.” This involves admitting the shared responsibility of the German Reich for the crimes, he continued.
