History of propaganda Primitive forms of propaganda have been a human activity as far back as reliable recorded evidence exists.
Why is the Hitler quote being used as proof of genocide? Hitler's Armenian Genocide Quote is a paragraph from Hitler's alleged second speech to his Wehrmacht commanders, a week before the invasion of Poland in August 22, Since it's first appearance, the quote has been used by Armenian activists as just another reason to believe in the Armenian Genocide.
The quote, though has many similar translations is as follows: Our strength is our quickness and our brutality. Genghis Khan had millions of women and children hunted down and killed, deliberately and with a gay heart.
History sees in him only the great founder of States. What the weak Western European civilization alleges about me, does not matter. I have given the order—and will have everyone shot who utters but one word of criticism—that the aim of this war does not consist in reaching certain geographical lines, but in the enemies' physical elimination.
Thus, for the time being only in the east, I put ready my Death's Head units, with the order to kill without pity or mercy all men, women, and children of the Polish race or language.
Only thus will we gain the living space that we need. Who still talks nowadays of the extermination of the Armenians? The important part is the last sentence that Armenian activists seem to point as evidence for the genocide.
This is clearly debunked and I'll explain how. The Argument behind the quote The goal here is to convince you that Hitler justified the Holocaust and extermination of Jews because no one cared about the genocide of the Armenians. The argument they use with this quote, is a logical fallacy.
If you don't punish the Turks for the Armenian Genocide, some crazy dictator like Hitler will see them get away with it, and thus will commit genocide himself.
It's an appeal to emotion. It assumes that crazy people need rational justification or only do something evil because they saw someone else get away with it like a child may steal a cookie from the jar because he saw dad do it.
Lack of Evidence suggests the Speech is False Dr. Heath Lowry wrote after looking through the Nuremberg trials for proof of this quote: The address was never accepted as evidence in this or any other session of the Nuremberg Tribunal.
There was an attempt to have the quote inserted into the Nuremberg Trials, but the tribunal rejected it because it was a incoherent merger of two Hitler speeches acquired from questionable sources.
Nuremberg trial officials located the true speeches of Hitler during this time and admitted it into evidence. None of them mention Armenians. Motivation for Fabricating this Evidence It doesn't take a genius to realize that since everyone equates Hitler and Nazi Germany with pure evil, tying your enemy to them, makes it very easy to force others to sympathize with you and to appeal to their emotions.
Since the popularity of this quote amongst the Armenian community, they have been using it to acquire more sympathy especially among Jewish communities. They have used it to involve themselves more in Holocaust studies and they try hard to relate them to each other. The mere thought of equating the horrific suffering of Jews to the failed rebellion of the Armenians should enrage any Jewish person.
The Jews never rebelled against the Nazis, they were singled out in Germany society and were forced to wear identifying Jewish badges in order to promote antisemitism by law.
They were forced to live in ghettos. None of this happened to Armenians. There were many Armenians in leadership positions within the Ottoman government during the reign of the supposed "genocide perpetrators". Even if we were to assume the speech is absolutely true If we were to assume the speech is authentic and not question it, the wording of the speech is irrational.
The last sentence doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the speech, it's as if, out of the blue, Hitler decides to talk about the plight of the Armenians. Even further if we were to assume it is true, if Hitler didn't understand what happened to the Armenians, and believed the Armenian side of the story, then it would be circular logic to assume it is evidence of genocide.
The Final Solution and the Wannsee Conference that established it, had not yet happened. The Polish people were indeed terrorized by the Nazis during the war, but they weren't exterminated "men, women, and children".
Did Hitler's commanders ignore Hitler's command by not exterminating all Poles? Hitler had to justify genocide to his own commanders? The speech seems very far-fetched, why would the Fuhrer need to justify to his fascist subordinates about killing anyone by justifying it with past events?
Why would he compare himself to the barbarian Genghis Khan?Hitler Speech to the Doctors’ Union in April on racial purification of the German people. "The greatest achievements in intellectual life can never be produced by those of alien race but only by those who are inspired by the Aryan or German spirit.
Jews Plotted The Armenian Holocaust Turkey/Zionist Articles, History Articles, Turkey's Choice: Russia Or NATO?, Jewish Young Turks Were Murderers!, Jews Plotted The Armenian Holocaust JEWS PLOTTED THE ARMENIAN HOLOCAUST.
Hundreds of thousands of people in the United States protested the book burnings, a clear violation of freedom of speech, in public rallies in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and St. Louis. Schools also played an important role in spreading Nazi ideas.
