Happy childhood in spirit of hate
Tomorrow the hatred will concern you

Through the Looking Glass

5-year-old girl at school

A voice in the wilderness, or a bitter confession…

The daughter of my friends prepares for school to her utmost and attends a preparatory class with that aim. Coming back home today, she told her mother what they were taught at school. The teacher conducted the third lesson with them.

“The Armenians have made us unhappy and miserable. Keep that in your minds, children. Who are our enemies? That’s right, they are the Armenians. Learn it well, I will ask you at the next lesson without fail. The Armenians have slaughtered our ancestors,” the 20-year-old teacher concluded.

The girl told her mother about this, she was in a stupor.

I also think that this is a sad occurrence. The young 20-year-old teacher and the brain of a 5-year-old child.

Why is this hammered into the head of a 5-year-old girl?

The involvement of Azerbaijani schools in state propaganda poses a threat for the future in terms of bringing up a generation of revenge, educated exclusively on the feelings of spite and hatred and traumatized mind.

In the 1990s, it was rumored here that the Armenians whisper in their newborn babies’ ear that “the Turks are your enemies1.

”I do not know whether or not it is true, but that caused a feeling of pity for the Armenians in many of us. But as we see, in the course of time a human becomes more and more like his enemy.

Just think of it! To tell a 5-year-old child, “The Armenians have made us unhappy and miserable…”
