Turkish filmmaker Fatih Akin: I recognize 1915 as genocide –
German-Turkish filmmaker Fatih Akin, who directed the film The Cut, which is about the Armenian Genocide and its consequences, reacted strongly against Germany’s former Turkish MP Hakki Keskin, who attempted to “teach” him history.
Akin responded publicly to Keskin, the former president of Germany’s Turkish community organization, and asked Keskin to remove his Email address from his mailing list and to no longer send him Emails, Marksist.org website of Turkey reported.
“I don’t want to receive your political content Emails. I recognize 1915 as genocide. I believe you are familiar with the content of the film The Cut. But you haven’t read my comments on it in various media; I hope you’ll be attentive,” Fatih Akin said.
