THE UNSPEAKABLE TURK

ATROCITIES IN ARMENIA
PITIABLE PLIGHT OF GREEKS

The Argus
22 Aug 1916

 

"The condition of the Greeks on the Black Sea coast is described in a message from Athens as deplorable. The Turks, owing to the Russian advance in Armenia, are clearing the inhabitants out of the villages and sending them on foot to concentration camps in the interior.

The unfortunate Greeks are almost foodless, yet the Turks rob these pitiful caravans of every possession. The Greek children are being taken from the villages and converted to Islamism.

To add to the horrors which the Greeks are suffering, Turkish soldiers are committing brutalities on the women and girls."
