The Genocide of Pontic Greeks and Assyrians

Eng, Fr

While the Armenians were the primary target of the 1915 Genocide perpetrated by the Young Turk regime, there were other Christian minorities in the Ottoman Empire who fell victim to similar policies of extermination. In this AGBU WebTalk, Dr. Bernard Coulie examines the genocide of the Empire’s Pontic Greek and Assyrian populations, who, in the years between 1915-1923, underwent a process of confiscations, deportations and massacres much like the Armenians.
