"Who today remembers the Armenians?"
The occasion was a meeting of Hitler, Goering, and the top military staff in late August 1939. Hitler was supposed to be using the meeting to motivate the Generals for the coming conflict. Not only is Hitler supposed to have said, "Who today remembers the Armenians?" but Goering is supposed to have gotten up on a table to "Sieg Heil!"
There are several references to the meeting from people who were there and they confirm that no such statement was made. One of the strongest rejections comes from Erich von Manstein, who discusses the meeting in his memoirs, "Lost Victories". As he points out, Hitler never would have used that kind of rhetoric to his generals, who were, for the most, very straight-laced Lutherans aristocrats and in any case very intellectualized by their exposure to the Prussian General Staff.
In addition, it makes little sense to say that 'no one remembered the Armenians' in 1939 as Franz Werfel's novel, "The 40 Days of Musa Dagh" (1936) was wildly popular and snagged the author a Nobel Prize.
A main reason you hear the lie is because the US "Holocau$t Museum" has reproduced it; a deliberate ploy to gain Armenian-American support and to distract folks into accepting the ridiculous 'holocaust' story as alleged via a backdoor tactic. So, what we have is more 'garbage in, garbage out'....the norm for the 'holocaust' shysters.
