And yes this is something that historians should clarify. Our historians offered to establish a committee but the Armenian historians refused this because if you study on this issue, the whole world will see the truth.

As far as I can see you are refusing to accept that at least 300 000 Armenians died during deportation, which is what your country says. So I assume you think the Turkish government are wrong?

What happened?
There is general agreement that hundreds of thousands of Armenians died when the Ottoman Turks deported them en masse from eastern Anatolia to the Syrian desert and elsewhere in 1915-16. They were killed or died from starvation or disease....


The total number of Armenian dead is disputed. Armenians say 1.5 million died. The Republic of Turkey estimates the total to be 300,000. According to the International Association of Genocide Scholars, the death toll was "more than a million"....
Could the holocaust denial be anything to do with this?

Quote:
In Turkey, public debate on the issue has been stifled. Article 301 of the penal code, on "insulting Turkishness", has been used to prosecute prominent writers who highlight the mass killings of Armenians. Among them were Nobel laureate Orhan Pamuk and Hrant Dink, who was later shot dead in January 2007.
