French Writer Says 30,000 Armenians Were Slain at One Place
JANUARY 3, 1919
PARIS, Jan. 2, (Havas.) -- In giving details of the Armenian massacres in Turkey in the last five years, the Constantinople correspondent of the Petit Parisien says that at one time 100,000 Armenians were concentrated for alleged strategically reasons at Dorgor, Arabia. The Turkish authorities in Constantinople thought the number was too high and gave orders that 80,000 of the Armenians be put out of the way.
In the Mush Valley, the correspondent adds, the Kurds robbed 2,000 Armenian women. Later discovering, that the women had swallowed their jewels, the Kurds killed them in a horrible manner and burned the bodies. The next day "these monsters quietly sifted the ashes seeking the jewels."
The correspondent reports that in the same region 7,000 children between 3 and 10 years of age died of starvation and 100 women were buries alive in trenches which the Turks first forced them to dig.
