  • Historian uses signature analysis to confirm that two letters regarding the Armenian genocide were written by Bahaettin Shakir, one of the orchestrators of the tragedy.
  • The analysis was carried out by a leading Turkish historian, on documents from the Ottoman Archives.
  • 1.5 million Armenians were exterminated during and after World War I, but present day Turkey continues to contest the figures and the “orchestrated genocide” label.
  • The denial hinges on poor archives from that period, and the UN urges the Turkish government to reinvestigate the tragedy, establish truth and make reparations.
