When & Where

The 1930 massacre of the Kurdish people in Zilan and the surrounding Ararat region is not well-documented in English, but what we have attests that thousands of men, women, and children were killed by the military as a direct order of the Turkish government. Included in these numbers are at least 3,500 women and children. Small groups of survivors fled to nearby Iran. However, the Iranian government eventually began deporting these refugees, mostly women and children, back to Turkey in 1932
