THE UNSPEAKABLE TURK
ATROCITIES IN ARMENIA.
Pitiable plight of Greeks.
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 vil-
lages and sending them on foot to concentra-
tion camps in the interior.
The unfortunate Greeks are almost food-
less, yet the Turks rob these pitiful cara-
vans of every possession. The Greek chil-
dren are being taken from the villages and
converted to Islamism.
To add to the horrors which the Greeks
are suffering, Turkish soldiers are commit-
ting brutalities on the women and girls.
