ISTANBUL — The April issue of the Turkish newspaper Evrensel Kültür is entirely dedicated to the Armenian Genocide centennial. The edition will examine the century-old pain and shame through the scope of culture, history and arts, ermenihaber.am reports citing Turkish website Evrensel.

The magazine will feature articles by prominent journalists and writers that present the emptiness caused by Armenians’ absence, as well as articles about Armenians’ input in different fields. Philologist Necmiye Alpay, in particular, will present the role of Armenian scholars in the field of linguistics.

Other articles will be dedicated to Armenian masters in Turkish cinematography, theatre, the Armenian music, the image of Armenians in Turkish fiction and the perceptions on the Armenian Genocide.

A special feature will present the story of “The 20 Gallows” memories by Armenian clergyman Galust Boghosian who witnessed the execution of 20 members of Hunchakian party. The book was first printed in Armenian in 1921, and Evrensel publishing house plans to issue the book in Turkish.

  1. We are proud to be Armenians …
    Who hate us Thee hate mankind…

    We are born to help others,
    Never betray who cared for us…
    We never hurt…Never Hate
    We like to share our creations
    Our arts, our literature, our poems…
    We are not born to kill and confiscate..

    We are born to built arches, bridges, cities,
    And carve Khachkars…
    We want others not to cut our artful hands…

    Thus… we want our rights,
    Our destroyed city Ani… Our lands …
    Our Ararat to return to us…
    Which never belonged before to any race.
