One hundred years
ago, in 1915, the Ottoman Turkish Empire made the appalling decision to
annihilate its Christian minorities. They chiefly targeted the Armenians, but
also attacked other ancient communities such as the Assyrians and Maronites.
The carnage that began in the Spring of 1915, and reached its height during that
year, claimed some two million dead. Millions of others, mainly Greeks were
exiled. These events had an epochal significance, not least in establishing the
concept of genocide on the global stage, and probably inspiring Hitler.
