Overview

From the National Archives and the Library of Congress - the most comprehensive documentation in the world on The Armenian Genocide.

In 1915 the Ottoman government began implementing a policy to annihilate the Armenians of the empire through deportations and massacres. At that time the U.S. Embassy in Constantinople was the primary focus of attention for those reporting on the escalating violence.

Over 30,000 pages of documents from the Department of State and other government agencies, reproduced on microfiche, relate in chilling detail the implementation of this policy of genocide. Documents include eyewitness accounts of deportations and massacres reported by consular officials, missionaries and relief workers, as well as State Department reports and cables providing details on the background of Near Eastern ethnic tensions, on the rise of the Djemal-Enver-Talaat (`Young Turks') regime, on the international response to the Armenian crisis, and on the aftermath of the war.

A substantial index allows quick and easy access to the names and testimonies of hundreds of participants and witnesses.
