DescriptionArmenian Genocide was carried out during and after World War 1Political leaders and intelligent Armenians were rounded up and killed. (Armenica.orgin cooperation with Union of Armenian Associations in Sweden, 2010-2013)“The remaining Armenians were called from their homes, told they would be relocated, and then marched off to concentration camps in the desert between Jerablus and Deir ez-Zor where they would starve and thirst to death in the burning sun. On the march, often they would be denied food and water, and many were brutalized and killed by their "guards" or by "marauders." The authorities in Trebizond, on the Black Sea coast, did vary this routine: they loaded Armenians on barges and sank them out at sea” says (University of Michigan,Fact Sheet:Armenian Genocide, 1996)Women and young girls were raped, forced to marry, tortured, forced upon prostitution, sold into slavery, and victims of sexual mutilation.Armenian Genocide took place specifically in the Ottoman Empire
