proposal of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to open
Turkish high schools in Germany. Most of the representatives of
political parties and public figures in Germany, including those of
Turkish origin opposed that idea. "Children of Turkish origin should

immigrants from Turkey in the German society, while the establishment
of Turkish high schools may lead to further isolation of this group of

Erdogan’s proposal was rejected by the German politicians of Turkish

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
