Genocide of Christian Minorities in the Ottoman Empire

This exhibit examines the systematic slaughter of Armenians, Assyrians, and Greeks as part of an effort to “Turkify” the country’s minorities. Between 1915 and 1923, the Christian populations of Asia Minor (present-day Turkey) were systematically annihilated by the Young Turk government: 750,000 Assyrians, 1.5 million Armenians, and 350,000 Greeks were slain.
