ARF Congress that started Operation Nemesis. It’s the 1920 Boston meeting where Operation Nemesis was born. This is the left side of the picture.
Operation Nemesis was a covert operation from 1920 to 1922 to assassinate the masterminds (Young Turks) of the Turkish Genocide of the Armenians.

The Young Turks are a Pan-Turkist and ultranationalist party influenced by French Jacobinism. It was established in Thessalonica, with its main newspaper in Paris, France (“Meshveret” or “La Consultation”).
At the beginning, the so-called « revolutionary » Ittihad ve Terakki (Committee of Union and Progress), though concealing its genocidal intent, was not hidding its Turkish nationalism, which was not compatible with the survival of the Armenian minority.
It was in full knowledge of these worrying facts that the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (Dashnaktsutyun – abbr. ARF – affiliate : ANCA) has been one of the associate partners and observers of the Young Turks Ittihadists, actively participating in their revolution and following activities before the Armenian genocide. Up to now the Armenian Revolutionary Federation has never talked openly about this serious historical mistake.
After the Armenian Genocide, many Young Turks criminals fled to Germany. From 1919 to 1922, the Young Turks zealots in Germany were protected by the Weimar Republic and its first President Friedrich Ebert.
The Young Turks were funded by various pangermanist circles and Russian bolcheviks as well for Pan-Turkist and Pan-Islamists programs in North Africa, the Middle-East, Daghestan, Nakhichevan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Central Asia, Afghanistan, China and India.
This Pan-Turkist party played a central role, with the help of Russian bolcheviks, Italian and German liberal and nationalist circles, in the formation of the new Turkish army, the founding of the new Turkish kemalist Republic in Ankara (Angora) between 1919 and 1923, and the founding of the Republic of Azerbaijan in 1918.
Most of the Young Turks zealots became ministers, deputies and journalists under Mustafa Kemal Turkish Republic.
