GREEK WOMEN TORTURED

THE ARGUS

3 AUG 1915

Several Greeks at Marsivan were compelled to dig a trench as a grave before they were shot. Greek women were given the alternatives of embracing the Islam religion or death."They refused to change their religion.  Their lives were spared, but they were left to the mercy of the soldiers and compelled to accompany the troops on a long march. Some fell exhausted, and were abandoned with their babies. A German orphanage sent ambulances to rescue the survivors who were lying along the roadsides.
