Armenia One Great Grave

Conditions in Armenia are fully as bad as in Servia or Poland, according to accounts given out by the Armenian Red Cross on March 20. An Armenian doctor, named Derderian, has sent word that the whole plain ot Alashgerd is virtually covered with the bodies of men, women, and children.

When the Russian forces retreated the Kurds fell upon the helpless people, and shut them up in the mosques. The men were killed, and the women carried away. The organisers of the Red Cross fund say there are 120,000 destitute Armenians in the Caucasus.
