JUAN GARCÃ‰S: "… Hitler asked his generals to be ready to invade Poland, and to exterminate the population in those territories, because German population should replace this population. Some generals say, "My FÃ¼hrer, there will a provoking of cry in the world. Thousands of people will be killed, and there will be blame for us." And the answer from Hitler was, "Why? Twenty years ago was a massacre of Armenians. More than one million Armenians were massacred by the Turkish, in the Turkish Empire. Who remembers now the Armenians?" So, the forgiveness of the first big massacre in the twentieth century was the pretext for encouraging a second wave of massacre that was in World War II." –Another 9/11 Anniversary: September 11, 1973, When US-Backed Pinochet Forces Took Power in Chile

Who’s JUAN GARCÃ‰S, you ask?
AMY GOODMAN: Our next guest, Juan GarcÃ©s, was a personal adviser to Salvador Allende. Juan GarcÃ©s was with the president when revolting troops bombed the presidential palace and found himself the sole survivor among Allende’s political advisers when the coup had run its course.
More than twenty years later, Juan GarcÃ©s has led a legal effort to sue Augusto Pinochet for crimes against humanity in the Spanish courts. Juan GarcÃ©s is now focused on getting the Spanish courts to investigate for the first time the crimes against humanity committed under General Franco’s dictatorship.
