Conversation between Henry Morgenthau and Talat Pasha

Henry Morgenthau, Amerikanischer Botschafter (American ambassador): Nehmen wir an, ein paar Armenier hätten euch tatsächlich verraten, wäre das wirklich Grund genug ein ganzes Volk zu vertreiben? Entschuldigt das die Tatsache, dass unschuldige Frauen und Kinder sterben müssen? – (Let’s assume a few Armenians had actually betrayed you, would that be reason enough to expel an entire people? Does this excuse the fact that innocent women and children must die?)
Talat Pasha: Diese Dinge sind unvermeidbar! – (These things are inevitable!)
