Belgium and Armenia

Worst Crimes for 400 Years

A meeting was held at the Mansion House on Friday afternoon for the purpose of opening a relief fund on behalf of the persecuted Armenians.

Lord Bryce, in addressing the gathering, declared that two international crimes which had been committed during the past 12 months were worse than anything in the past four centuries. Though for wickedness and faithlessness the invasion of Belgium could not be surpassed, the recent massacres of the Armenians in Asia Minor were worse than any massacre in history.
