“In general, those who resort to mass murder on a collective scale always put forward the justification that they acted on behalf of the nation.”
Taner Akçam

“As a rule, if a crime is committed by one group against another ethnic or religious group, it is nearly impossible for the perpetrator to punish itself.”
Taner Akçam, A Shameful Act: The Armenian Genocide and the Question of Turkish Responsibility

“The attempt to justify and rationalize the death of a whole nation, including women, children, the old and infirm, must itself be considered a crime against humanity.”
Taner Akçam, A Shameful Act: The Armenian Genocide and the Question of Turkish Responsibility
