Armenian Massacres


Result of French Inquiries

Additional proof of the wholesale slaughter of Armenians by the Turks is furnished in a letter sent to the Paris "Journal" by Dr. Henri Barbey, who was active in investigating German atrocities in occupied French territory last year.

Writing from Erzeroum, the principal city of Armenia, now occupied by the Russians, Dr. Barbey states that of the population of 2,500,000 Armenians in Turkey at the beginning of 1915, 2,000,000 have been massacred by order of the Young Turk Government.
