Stuttgart University Rector „Neutral“ On Genocide

The rector of the Stuttgart University cancelled a room for a meeting on May 28 during which a lecture and discussion of the 1915 Armenian genocide were to be presented. In motivating his decision, the rector told organizers that there had been protests by Turks “in Berlin” and that he thought one should maintain “neutrality” on the subject. The Central Council of Armenians in Germany, among others, condemned the move.
