This video recounts how tens of thousands of Armenians died when the rulers of the then Ottoman Turkish Empire deported them en masse from the eastern Anatolia region to the Syrian desert and elsewhere in 1915-16. The Armenians were described as collaborators with Russia, a country that was facing the Ottomans in the Caucasus region. The total number of victims is in dispute.
