The Armenian Genocide Additional Resources

Featured Map

This map illustrates three prevailing aspects of the 1915 Armenian Genocide: the deportations, the massacres, and the concentration camps. The deportations affected the majority of Armenians in the Turkish Empire. From as far north as the Black Sea and as far west as European Turkey, Armenians were forcibly removed to the Syrian desert. From the onset the deportations were marked by atrocities. As this map demonstrates, the total effect of the policies of the Turkish government was the mass destruction of the Armenian people.
