Hidden Genocides in European History


The history of the West, which at every turn forced Turkey to act in accordance with its own policies, is fraught with genocide and bloody massacres, leaving Turkey in a difficult position under the pretext of so-called genocide at every turn. In the world, including our own textbooks, these genocides have been turned off by being mentioned as discoveries and colonial activities. We should reconsider these issues in our textbooks as soon as possible and explain them more accurately and more clearly.

Starting today, we have started to write about the genocides committed by the West one by one and to the leading media organizations and non-governmental organizations of Europe and America. Our goal is to tell them once again that we know the bloody history they tried to close and that we were aware of how they were implementing a two-faced policy.

The coincidence is that the first genocide of the 20th century was made by the Germans, who were preparing to vote on genocide in Turkey at the beginning of June.

In addition to this bill, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) in the German parliament and a Pontus are trying to bring up the Greek genocide. The Christian Democrats are trying to bring the issue to parliament by creating public opinion with conferences and panels.

The Germans committed a great genocide in South-West Africa (Namibia), between 1904 and 1907, in incredible ways against native Hereros and Namas.

A great dissatisfaction began on the implementation of Equality and fair German policies on indigenous peoples and the onset of slavery in the region. The Germans, who bought agricultural land, also began to seize the mines to control the diamonds, which are abundant in the region.

On January 12, 1904, the people of hereros rebelled against the German colonial rule in order to protect their lives.

German General Lothar von Trotha was sent to the region in October 1904 with 14,000 troops. As soon as the general arrives in the region, he wrote the following letter for the local semanta:

I, the victorious commander of the German kuvetts, sent this letter to the people of Herero… Just so you know, all Hereros will leave. Any herero, armed or unarmed to be found within german borders, will be shot and killed, whether with an animal or not. From now on, we don't want your wife or child in this land. I'm either going to drive them or shoot them. That's my decision on the Hereros.

In August of that year, the Germans defeated the locals with superior firepower and drove them to the desert with their families.

In October, the Namalar, another people in the region, rebelled. The Germans treated them the same way, destroying 65,000 Herero, in other words, 80% of their total population and 10,000 Nama, or half of their total population.

The most widely used method of german genocide was to drive the people into the desert, where they were thirsty or with pre-poisoned drinking water.

The UN report, published in 1985, was considered the first genocide movement in the 20th century, which took place in Herero and Namalara Guney-West Africa, or namibia, now known as Namibia.

Dutch historian Jan-Bart Gewald talks about some of the concentration camps set up specifically for thousands of children from German fathers.

Women and young girls were forced to become sex slaves to German soldiers, as most of the men of the indigenous people were killed.
