Committee Against Racism and Discrimination of the Istanbul Branch of the Human Rights Association, held a commemoration of the 102nd anniversary of the Armenian Genocide in front of the Turkish-Islamic Arts Museum, a former prison where Armenian intellectuals were held prior to deportation.
Another public commemoration was held in Istanbul—at the Tunel Square, in Istanbul’s Beyoglu district—however, the commemoration held at the former prison was the only one to use the word “genocide” in their slogans, chants, and banners, according to one of the organizers.
“Today, once again, we come together to commemorate the victims of the Armenian Genocide, to express our shame as the grandchildren of the perpetrators, and to say: ‘stop denial’,” read a part of the statement released by the organizers, which called on Turkish authorities to recognize the Armenian Genocide and to “compensate” for the crime. The organizers also announced that the reject and denounce the honoring and glorification of genocide perpetrators—including Talaat Pasha—by Turkish authorities.

ASIA MINOR PEOPLES CONFERENCE BERLIN 28/29 JANUARY 2017
Opening statement of Souren Seraydarian, chairman of the Congrès National des Arméniens Occidentaux (National Congress of Western Armenians)
On behalf of the NCWA, I have the great honor and pleasure to welcome all of you to this Asia Minor Peoples Conference; United in Rights.
We decided to initiate this event on this particular date, because of Hrant Dink’s legacy and message to us which is summarized in one sentence “Justice through reconciliation, truth, dialogue and Democracy”
Armenian, Greek, Assyrian, Kurdish, Turkish and all Asia Minor populations shared during the last . centuries a common tragedy. As a result some of us lost everything they had including their lives, property and cultural heritage while others became only residents of a large geographical area, once known as Asia Minor. And today, we all can see, that whatever happened to Non-Muslims in the 19th and 20th century may happen today to Non-Turks.
