GENOCIDE IN THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE
Armenians, Assyrians, and Greeks, 1913-1923
Edited by George N. Shirinian
Berghahn Books 2017.
The final years of the Ottoman Empire were catastrophic ones for its non-Turkish, non-Muslim minorities. From 1913 to 1923, its rulers deported, killed, or otherwise persecuted staggering numbers of citizens in an attempt to preserve “Turkey for the Turks,” setting a modern precedent for how a regime can commit genocide in pursuit of political ends while largely escaping accountability. While this brutal history is most widely known in the case of the Armenian genocide, few appreciate the extent to which the Empire’s Assyrian and Greek subjects suffered and died under similar policies. This comprehensive volume is the first to broadly examine the genocides of the Armenians, Assyrians, and Greeks in comparative fashion, analyzing the similarities and differences among them and giving crucial context to present-day calls for recognition.

4,000 REFUGEES AT HERACLEA.
(FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT)
ATHENS, APRIL 17.
After all deductions have been made to cover for exaggeration, there is abundant evidence to show that the Turks are subjecting the Greeks in Thrace and at Smyrna to systematic persecution in order to bring about their emigration. Approximately 4,000 refugees are now concentrated at Heraclea, of whom 1,000 have already embarked. The boycott of Greeks and of Greek merchandise in the environs of Smyrna is being prosecuted with increasing vigour and is doing considerable damage to European commercial interests.
PERSECUTION OF GREEKS
WOMEN AND CHILDREN MASSACRED
Wairarapa Age, 19 May 1914, p5.
SOFIA, May 18.
According to official reports, the persecution of Greeks in Eastern Thrace have been renewed with extreme vigor.
Crowds of Greek peasants from Demotica have arrived at Dedeagatch and they report that their wives and children were massacred.
Others crossed the Marimza [Maritza] River in boats, with Turks firing on them. Many were drowned.

“...tens of thousands of men, women and children have been deported, and tens of thousands have died. It was pure deliberate extermination.”
