Brandenburg: Teaching Armenian genocide bad for Turks
Kenan Kolat, president of the Turkish community in Germany, says in a recent interview in Hurriyet that teaching the Armenian genocide in schools in Brandenburg puts the Turkish students under psychological pressure. He further said that this jeopardizes the internal peace and affects the school performance of German-Turks.
Brandenburg is the only state in Germany where the subject is taught. In 2005 it was dropped for a short time, supposedly due to pressure by Turkish diplomats. Currently the schools teach about various genocides in the 20th century.
