    Deir ez-Zor Camps - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Deir ez-Zor camps were concentration camps[1] in the heart of the Syrian desert where many thousands of Armenian refugees were forced into death marches during the Armenian Genocide. The United States vice-consul in Aleppo, Jesse B. Jackson, estimated that Armenian refugees, as far east as Deir ez-Zor and south of Damascus, numbered 150,000, all of whom were virtually destitute.[2]
    You're ****ing kidding, right?

    Nope, referring to the Dier ez-Zor camps that the Ottoman government forced hundreds of thousands to march towards. You keep trying to turn attention away from the topic of discussion. It's not working to well, is it?

    Well, your addressing it, so I'm pleased with the results. That said, it's nots meant to turn attention away from the very real Armenian genocide, but to keep a focus that not all genocides are acknowledged, and that's a problem. It's the first step in avoiding it again. Unless it's only certain genocides that should be avoided.

    Of course they were concentration camps. People were locked up in adequate conditions, given little food, and forced to live in those spaces without cause. Continuing to deny it makes you look like a revisionist.

    I'm pretty sure I said that not every country has admitted to its role in a genocide. Germany is one of the few who has and should be commended for that.
