Cemal Pasha grandson to present Genocide book in Yerevan –
PanARMENIAN – Yerevan will host a presentation of the “1915: The Armenian Genocide” book, authored by Hassan Cemal, the grandson of the Genocide orchestrator Cemal Pasha.
The event will be held December 11 in the framework of the Civilitas Foundation project Climbing the Mountain.
A prominent Turkish journalist and writer, Hasan Cemal was the Chief Editor of the Cumhuriyet daily, and columnist for Sabah and Milliyet daily papers. He extensively covered the Kurdish issue and has been criticized by the Turkish government for his publications.
In 2008, after a visit to the Genocide Memorial in Yerevan, Hasan Cemal left a note in the commemorative book, stating that the denial of the 1915 atrocities spells complicity in this crime against humanity. In his book released in 2012, Hasan Cemal highlights his personal experience of going from the Genocide denial to the recognition of the tragedy.
