100+ Books Make Mockery of Armenian Genocide Deniers

Ottoman Archives

25 August 2021

More than a decade ago, in the wake of promoting the infamous protocols, Turkey insisted on inclusion of a “sub-commission” to study the “events” surrounding the massacres of  1915-1923 which are recognized as Genocide of the Armenians by the international community.

It was no surprise to note that some citizens of Turkish origin in Canada repeated the same call. One such individual was Tuna Baskoy of Ryerson University, Toronto, who now is the chair of  the Department of Politics & Public Administration. Another professor from Turkey Sedef Arat-Koç is a faculty member. Tariq Amin-Khan who “contributes Op Ed articles in Canadian and Pakistani newspapers” is also a professor at the same department. His name is mentioned here, because Pakistan right from its inception has denied the veracity of the Genocide. It is a staunch ally of Turkey and continues its denial.

University of Toronto is a centre for Genocide studies including the Genocide of the Armenians . It’s in the public’s interest to know whether Prof. Baskoy and other doubters who hold important scholastic positions do continue to insist on the necessity of a “sub-committee” to establish whether the Genocide of Armenians is a fact. For their benefit, Keghart.org has compiled a list of more than 100 volumes (see below) dealing with the matter. The list contains fewer than five books by Armenians.
