    Soghomon Tehlirian



    Soghomon Tehlirian (Armenian: Սողոմոն Թեհլիրեան; April 2, 1896 May 23, 1960) was an Armenian revolutionary who assassinated Talaat Pasha, the former Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire, in Berlin on March 15, 1921. The assassination was a part of Operation Nemesis, planned by the Armenian Revolutionary Federation as revenge for the Armenian Genocide orchestrated by the Ottoman Imperial Government during World War I. Talaat Pasha had been convicted and sentenced to death in absentia in the Turkish courts-martial of 191920, and was viewed as the main orchestrator of the genocide. After a two-day trial Tehlirian was found not guilty by the German court, and freed. Tehlirian is considered a national hero by Armenians.

    He was in Valjevo, Serbia, in June 1914. In the fall of that year, Tehlirian made his way to Russia and joined the army to serve in a volunteer unit on the Caucasus Front against the Turks.

    According to History's Great Untold Stories: Larger than Life Characters & Dramatic Events that Changed the World, In June 1915, the Ottoman local police ordered the deportation of all the Armenians in Erzinjan. Tehlirian's mother, three sisters, his sister's husband, his two brothers, and a two-year-old niece were deported. All told, Tehlirian lost 85 family members to the Armenian Genocide.

    In 2016 Tehlirian's son, who spoke to The Independent but did not reveal his name, stated that Tehlirian's mother and Vasken, his older brother, died in the genocide - the latter was studying medicine and living in Beirut - but that Tehlirian did not have a sister, that his father was fighting in the war in Russia, and that his other two brothers were in Serbia.

    In 1921 he joined Operation Nemesis, a covert assassination program that would target the architects of the Armenian Genocide.

    Tehlirian's main target was Talt Pasha, who was a member of the military triumvirate known as the "Three Pashas" who controlled the Ottoman Empire. He was the former Minister of the Interior and Grand Vizier (an office equivalent to that of a prime minister), and was noted for his prominent role in the Armenian Genocide. As soon as he found Talt Pasha's address on 4 Hardenbergstrae, in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin, Tehlirian rented an apartment near his house so that he could study his everyday routine.



    Tehlirians main target was Talaat Pasha, one of the triumvirate of Young Turk leaders who had ruled in the last days of the Ottoman Empire; he was a former minister of the interior and a grand vizier (prime minister). Talaat was killed by Tehlirian with a single bullet on the morning of March 15, 1921, in Berlin, in broad daylight. Tehlirian did not flee the scene and was immediately arrested.

    The trial examined not only Tehlirian's actions but also Tehlirian's conviction that Talt was the main author of the Armenian deportation and mass killings. The defense attorneys made no attempt to deny the fact that Tehlirian had killed a man, and instead focused on the influence of the Armenian Genocide on Tehlirian's mental state. Tehlirian claimed during the trial that he had been present in Erzincan in 1915 and had been deported along with his family and personally witnessed their murder. When asked by the judge if he felt any sort of guilt, Tehlirian remarked, "I do not consider myself guilty because my conscience is clearI have killed a man. But I am not a murderer."

    It took the jury slightly over an hour to render a verdict of "not guilty."

    I linked Croatian wiki article because it's much more detailed than English version. If somebody's interested, you can use Google translate.

    Antonio Surian detto Armeno

    Antonio Surian detto Armeno (Anton the Armenian), an engineer, military, doctor and inventor. He arrived in Venice from Cyprus at the age of 20. His brilliant mind of an engineer especially demonstrated itself in the Battle of Lepanto in 1571. Anton the Armenian developed a technique and positioned the ship canons allowing to rotate ninety degrees with each artillery defusing, which allows continuous fire in such a way that no cannonball missed its target, and that resulted in the crushing defeat of the Ottoman fleet. As a result of the battle, the Ottomans lost 224 ships, while the Venetians lost only 13.
