/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The first textbook about the Genocide has been
issued in Germany. Yesterday German Minister of Education Holger
Rupprecht presented the book titled "Genocides and state crimes with
use of violence in 20-th century as school lesson topic." The idea of
compiling such a textbook emerged this February, when German forces
launched a hot discussion on the Armenian Genocide. The textbook
written by scientists with the assistance of the Bochum University
staff consists of two parts. The first tells about the principal
signs and causes of genocide while the second presents the history of
the Ruanda genocide and the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire.
The first schoolchildren to study the genocides of the 2-th century
will be the pupils of the schools of Brandenburg.
