    Between April 15 and 18, 24,000 Armenian males were systematically executed in the Van region. Turkish apologists claim that an Armenian uprising in Van necessitated the subsequent deportations. Whether the uprising arose from persecution or national aspirations exacerbated by the war, it occurred in a region whose governor, Djevdet Bey, was notorious for threatening the death of any Muslim who protected a Christian. Bey had also issued the chilling order: "The Armenians must be exterminated."

    In the four decades prior to these events, Armenians had learned to be prepared for danger. Under Sultan Abdul Hamid, they enjoyed only the semblance of freedom. They were not allowed to bear arms . . .

    Who Remembers the Armenians?
