red circles = massacres

dark orange = current armenia
orange = historic armenia [now turkish territory]

58% of total population dead
1,500,00 men,women & children


The appalling incidents of the genocide against the armenian population by  the Ottoman government from 1915-1923 result in the death of the entire population of historic armenia at the eastern extremity of Anatolia.
Yet this genocide has been misinterpreted as a transfer of Armenian people or deportations. However due to the governments control of press and telegraphs the Armenian massacre occurred outside the eyes of the international press

90% of land and property lost
nearly all of historic Armenia


Along with the loss of life, the Armenian population lost goods and property through systematic state confiscation. Through mass deportations, Armenians were forced to leave non-transportable property behind such as homes,farms,buildings,lands and personal wealth. Goods and property were passed over to the government and thus it was controlled by other government officials. With this control the continued genocide and deportation of Armenians continued without much resistance    

Events in conjunction : Greek Genocide 900,000 ,(deaths) Assyrian Genocide 750,000(deaths)
