Shahan Natalie, the Brains Behind the Execution of Talaat Pasha

Christopher Jon Bjerknes


Shahan Natalie planned and organized the successful execution of Talaat Pasha for the crime of committing genocide against the Armenian People. Talaat Pasha was a crypto-Jew from Salonika. Talaat was Minister of the Interior of the Ottoman Empire, a member of the Committee of Union and Progress, and Grand Master of the Grand Orient Masonic Lodge of Constantinople. He issued orders for the complete extermination of the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire.

Under orders from Shahan Natalie, Soghomon Tehlirian assassinated Talaat Pasha, in Berlin, on 15 March 1921. It appears that Watertown, Massachussetts is a city of destiny. The Wikipedia page for Shahan Natalie states,

"Shahan Natalie died on the morning of April 19, 1983, at his home in Watertown, Massachusetts; he was 99."
