Turk has been here
November 19, 2004
Organization Studying Armenian Architecture, an NGO, has published
a calendar called “Turkey: Cultural Genocide,” which shows the fate
of the Armenian monuments in Turkey.
Photos on the left side of the calendar were taken in the beginning
of the 20th century, the photos on the right-hand side show what
these monuments were turned into in the beginning of the 21st century.
These pictures are a unique civilization “passport” of Turkey which
is trying to join the European Union. If Europeans view the European
Union as a civilization value and not as a mere geographic spot,
and if the Europeans haven’t forgotten “A Turk has been here,” then
Turkey should not get an entry visa to Europe.
