Germany and the Secret Genocide
Set against the backdrop of World War II, the film chronicles the involvement of Turkey’s ally, Germany, in the first genocide of the 20th Century. German documents attest to Turkish culpability and to German complicity and cover-up. Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times has declared the film a “…rigorously researched and a damning indictment…a notable and persuasive film…a warm-up to the Holocaust.”
Germany and the Secret Genocide, the second film of THE WITNESSES trilogy on the Armenian Genocide of 1915, received the coveted First Place Golden Camera Award in the History Category from the 2004 U.S. International Film and Video Festival, the largest festival of its kind specializing in documentary, informational and industrial films. In addition, it was one of only 7 productions selected from 1500 submissions from 27 countries to be nominated for the Festival’s Grand Prix Award.
Germany and the Secret Genocide was featured at the non-competitive One World Human Rights Film Festival in Prague in April 2004. Festival audiences voted the film the 7th most popular of the 156 presented. It has been translated to Czech and German and is being screened throughout Central Europe and the Balkans.
