(By the Associated Press.)
Berlin July 29. – What is described as “the truth about the Armenian massacres,” is revealed to the German public by the Tageblatt, which prints extracts of a book based upon diplomatic documents which the foreign ministry commissioned Johann Lepsius to write.
The writer shows that the Turkish committee of Union and Progress deliberately decided to realize national ideas by assimilating or destrowing the Armenians, who, in Turkey, number about 1,850,000. He declared the arrest and massacre of 600 American leaders in April, 1915, and how the previous so-called Armenian rising was provoked as a pretext for young Turkey schemes.
