Aleppo is a city and province in northern Syria. The city of Aleppo, today in northwestern Syria, was a major site on the deportation map. It was not only a killing station but a transfer point, where those who had survived deportation from points north could find refuge if they were lucky. The reports from Jesse Jackson in Aleppo in 1915-16, like Leslie Davis's, comprised a primary source of evidence for Ambassador Morgenthau, and eventually for the State Department and the press back home.
