We live here to make the world remember. Not to be quiet !

Today, as every Saturday, I spent my day in the Old Town of my city Gdansk.

How surprised I get when, in the middle of the Old Town, I saw an exhibition.

Armenian massacre in the beginning of XX century.

It was prepared by Polish-Armenian Foundation.

The exhibition showed covers from different newspapers from all over the world. This made me think a lot. If the world already was so aware of Turkish government brutal politics, why we did not learn anything from the history that happened more then a hundred years ago ?

It seems like after some time, everyone forget about it, and now history repeats but now the group that is oppressed are the Kurds.

My question is, will our children and grandchildren, after 100 years, be forced to experience such massacres again ? Will they be the oppressors or the victims ? Will they be forced to scream for a freedom and humanity because again the world will not react ?

How it will be then ….

Another French magazine showed Tatars from the Caucasus who massacred Armenians in Baku. Between 1905-1906 in many cities and regions of the Trans Caucasus there have been clashes between Turks, Tatars and Armenians. Clashes were provoked by the Turkish czarist government, which regularly sent there armed help.
