Report From a German Missionary on a Massacre of Armenians in 1915

"The women, children, and straggling elderly were marched for miles on the Armenian plateau. They had to cross mountain passes and ravines on foot. Bands of Special Organization Units, organized by the government, killed many Armenians in attacks on the convoys. During the attacks women and children were often kidnapped and later sold to Turkish families as slaves. They routinely raped women and girls and mutilated their bodies."
