The "museum" of war in Baku, with the collection of helmets of the fallen Armenian soldiers and other forms of horror, is out of my comprehension. Made me think of one of my favorite French documentaries called "Night and Fog". Then I saw a tweet of an Azerbaijani guy saying he had to read a lot about Nazis in order to analyze and grasp the logic of Aliyev's regime for his academic paper, and that today's "museum" only confirms that these logics are quite similar even though in practice they have differences.
Have to constantly remind me, that Azerbaijan is beyond Aliyev, think of all the beautiful souls I know from there.
This pain is unbearable, and the reality is getting more and more bizarre, but then I think of "Night and Fog", hoping that someday someone will make a touching documentary about that space, and this whole tragedy and future generations will live in love and peace like Germans and French do now.

PicsArt, a platform for finding images and editing them with AI-based tools, has announced that it is expanding its offering from just its app to the web, giving browser-based creators access to a selection of its tools, with more features rolling out next year.

The new tools are accessible for free and via a subscription on PicsArt.com. Currently-available tools include a template editor, background and object remover, video slideshow maker, text editor, and more. PicsArt is also including its entire library of what it calls "premium content," which includes stock photography, templates, fonts and stickers, and millions of what PicsArt calls "free-to-edit images submitted by PicsArts's community."

Below is a list of the more prominently featured tools that are now available on the web version of the platform:

* Thousands of easy-to-edit templates: Templates for everything from social media graphics to blog thumbnails, flyers, posters, announcements, and more
* Stock photography and stickers: An entire library of free-to-use stock images, backgrounds, and stickers
* Hundreds of fonts: Fonts of all sizes and styles to overlay on an image or creation
* Magic effects and filters: Dozens of magic effects and filters including PicsArt’s most popular Sketch and Canvas Effect
* Background removal and replace: Makes the background of any photo transparent with just one click. You can also select a different color, textured, or scenic background.
* Object Removal: Removes an unwanted object or person from any image.
* Style transfer: Copies the style from any uploaded image to give a new image the same look, feel, and aesthetic.

PicsArt's web tools are now available, and premium features along with cross-device access are included with the PicsArt Gold subscription for $8.99 a month, or $55.99 a year.

Earlier this year, PicsArt came under fire for allegedly allowing rampant theft of images on its platform. According to reports, one photographer found unauthorized use of her photo over 1,500 times. Her photos were uploaded to the platform without her knowledge and quickly propagated across the app. PicsArt said that after it became aware of the issue did its best to remove the offending images as quickly as possible, but the photographer did not feel like the company adequately addressed her concerns. You can read that story here.

this is an amazing building, designed by paul kaloustian, i know him.
it belongs to coaf - children of armenia, they have buses, which bring kids from the vicinity to classes - drawing, music, theatre, dances, yoga, programming, various natural languages.
they also have a hotel, in that building, so staying in it helps the project. it is not expensive, but the location and design are amazing.
the centre built with modernistic aesthetics in mind. in hotel you can see naked concrete walls. i like that very much.
stayed there a couple of days ago, hostpitability was extra ordinary even by armenian norms.

In 1918, in the Government building of the First Republic of Armenia in Yerevan (currently on Arami Street), politicians, well-known Armenian artists, and historians were having intense discussions about the colors and shape of the new Armenian flag. As Simon Vratsian writes in his memoirs, some of the politicians were opposed to the color orange noting that it would be hard to find the fabric. Others were arguing to use green instead. Martiros Saryan, the famous Armenian painter, was suggesting something completely different: “There are many tricolor flags and we, as an Eastern nation, need to have a flag with many colors because it's relevant to us...I suggest to have a rainbow flag wave over our beloved and long-suffering nation.”

Osmanische Reich der Putschisten, nicht Republik Türkei! Todesmarsch der Armenier. Es waren wieder mal die Deutschen!

Vor und während des 1. Weltkrieges war die Zielsetzung des British Empire die Auflösung der 3 großen regionalen Imperien, nämlich des Habsburger Reiches, Russischen Reiches und Osmanischen Reiches, um der Erdölreserven im Kaukasus habhaft werden zu können. Das Ausmaß der Erdölreserven im Irak und Arabien war noch nicht vollständig bekannt, geschweige den erschlossen.

Mit dem gleichen Ziel hat auch das Deutsche Kaiserreich versucht, in Kooperation mit dem Habsburger Reich und dem Osmanischen Reich gegen Russland vorzugehen und den Briten zuvorzukommen.

In dieser Konstellation haben die Briten, Franzosen und Russen terroristische Gruppen unter den Armeniern, Arabern und anderen Völkern des Osmanischen Reiches heranzuzüchtet und zu bewaffet, um das Reich von innen zu zersetzen.

Angestiftet vom europäischen rassistischen Nationalismus, insbesondere der deutschen Version, unternahmen die sogenannten Jungtürken im Jahre 1913 einen Militärputsch.
Sie ermordeten den Premierminister, brachten den alten Sultan Abdülhamit II. unter Hausarrest und setzen einen Marionennten-Sultan ein.

In völliger Selbstüberschätzung und angestachelt durch ihre deutschen Bündnispartner, unternahmen sie im Winter des Jahres 1914/1915 einen Kriegszug gegen Russland im Kaukasus und verloren ihn katastrophal. Allein über 80.000 Soldaten erfroren im Gebirge kampflos.

Gleichzeitig, bzw. schon vorher bewaffneten Russland und Frankreich armenische Separatisten, die bereits im Gebiet des versprochenen unabhängigen Armenien ethnische Säuberungen durch Massenmorde und Vertreibung der nicht-armenischen Bevölkerung vornahmen.

Nach Beratung mit ihren deutschen Partnern entschieden die Putschisten, dass das Gebiet, wo die Armenier einen wesentlichen Bevölkerungsanteil (maximal etwa 33%) ausmachten, den russichen Einmasch begünstigen würde und die Separtisten nicht unter Kontrolle gebracht werden könnten, solange sie Unterstützung von der Bevölkerung bekämen.

So wurde entschieden, die Armenier vollständig für die Dauer des Krieges aus Anatolien “umzusiedeln”, faktisch zu vertreiben, ohne Rücksicht auf Verluste.
Die Putschisten waren zu der Zeit überhauptnicht in der Lage, eine geordnete Umsiedlung zu organisieren. An allen Fronten des Reiches wurde Krieg geführt.

1913: Die Jungtürken putschen sich in Istanbul an die Macht
https://www.historeo.de/datum/1913-jungtuerken-putsch-in-istanbul

Nach der Niederlage im 1. Weltkrieg wurden die Putschisten in Abwesenheit verurteilt.

Das Osmanische Reich wurde zerteilt und befand sich in völliger Auflösung.

Während der Abspaltungungen im Balkan wurden etwa 1,4 Millionen Menschen, die unter den neuen Nationalstaaten als “Fremde” betrachtet wurden, umgebracht.

Die Überlebenden flüchteten in den noch bestehenden Rest des Osmanischen Reiches, also im wesentlichen das Gebiet um Istanbul und Anatolien.

In einem Folgekrieg des 1. Weltkrieges wurden die Besatzungsmächte besiegt und aus dem heutigen Staatsgebiet der Türkei, mit wesentlicher Waffenhilfe der Sovietunion, vertrieben.

Nach den anfänglichen Erfolgen des griechischen Einmarsches in West-Anatolien und ihrer anschließenden katastrophalen Niederlage, flüchtete fast die gesamte christliche Bevölkerung über das Meer nach Griechenland.

Anschließend wurde auch um weiteren Druck durch das British Empire abzuwehren, das Osmanische Reich juristisch aufgelöst und die Republik Türkei gegründet.

Die Republik Türkei ist also nicht das Osmanische Reich und schon gar nicht der Staat der Putischsten von 1913-1918.

Der Putsch des Jahres 1913 muss als Maßnahme zum Eintritt des Osmanischen Reiches in den Weltkrieg betrachtet werden.

Die Putschisten gehörten alle einer Freimaurerloge an.

Übrigens wurden die weiterhin bestehenden Reste der Partei der Putschisten im Jahre 1926 gesäubert, indem die noch lebenden Rädelsführer hingerichtet wurden.

Sowohl beim Putsch von 1913, als auch beim Kriegseintritt gegen Russland und dem Todesmarsch der Armenier waren immer die Deutschen beteiligt.

Das Genozid an den Armeniern ist also mehr den Deutschen anzulasten, als den Türken oder den anderen Völkern des ehemaligen Osmanischen Reiches.

Man muss sich mal vorstellen, dass ein Großteil der Bevölkerung in Anatolien selbst auf der Flucht war. Die Menschen waren weder am Putsch, noch am Todesmarsch beteiligt. Sicher gab es kriminelle die sich an den Flüchtlingen bereichert haben, aber allein die Entscheidung zur “Umsiedlung” durch die Putschisten und Deutschen war ein Todesurteil für diese Menschen.

Eine Sippenhaft der überlebenden Bevölkerung, die sich dann in der neuen Republik wiederfand, ist nicht angebracht.

The World’s Oldest Rug Was Made In Armenia


March 27, 2019

The oldest surviving knotted carpet is the Pazyryk rug, excavated miraculously in the frozen tombs of Siberia, dated from the 5th to the 3rd century B.C., now in the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. This square tufted carpet, almost perfectly intact, is considered by many experts to be of specifically Armenian, origin. The eminent authority of ancient carpets, Ulrich Schurmann, says of it:

“From all the evidence available I am convinced that the Pazyryk rug was a funeral accessory and most likely a masterpiece of Armenian workmanship”

When chemists and dye specialists of the Hermitage Museum examined the Pazyryk carpet for various substances, it has been concluded that the red threads used in the carpet were colored with a dye made from the Armenian cochineal, which was anciently found on the Ararat planes. Moreover the technique used to create the Pazyryk carpet is consistent with the Armenian double knot technique. This technique is particularly known as the “Armani baff”, that is “Armenian work” in several rug weaving centers of Iran.
