 +Baron '''Hans Freiherr von Wangenheim''' (1859-1915) - German diplomat. Ambassador Extraordinary to [[Mexico]]. German Minister at Athens, 1909-12. During [[World War I]], from 1912 to October 25, 1915 was ambassador to the [[Ottoman Empire]]. In 1914 the wave of deportations, executions, and genocide directed against the Armenian population started in Ottoman Empire. During the May and June 1915  major newspapers of the neutral nations (Switzerland, Denmark, United States) published numerous reports about these events. Under mounting international pressure and in response to the accusations of German complicity on July 4, 1915, '''Hans Freiherr von Wangenheim''', issued his memorandum of protest stating German official position on the Armenian Genocide. It began with expression of support for the Ottoman government security concerns:
 +''"The measures of repression by the Imperial Government [Young Turks] against the Armenian population of the eastern Anatolian provinces having been dictated by military considerations and constituting a legitimate means of defense, the German Government is far from opposing their execution inasmuch as these measures have objective of consolidating the internal security of Turkey and avoiding attempts at insurrections."''
 +Ambassador von Wangenheim then proceeds:
 +''"On the other hand, the German Government cannot disguise the dangers created by these rigorous measures and notably by the mass expatriations which include the guilty and the innocent indiscriminately, especially when these measures are accompanied by acts of violence, such as massacre and pillage."''
 +While von Wangenheim did not go further, his successor Ambassador Paul von Metternich reacted much more strongly. In August 1916, [[Three Pashas|two top Young Turks leaders]], [[İsmail Enver]] and [[Mehmed Talat Pasha]], signed a memorandum demanding  Ambassador Metternich’s recall citing his stance on the [[Armenian Genocide|Armenian Question]].
