Lead: During World War I, Turkish plans for exterminating or deporting the people of Armenia nearly succeeded.

Intro. : A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

Content: Being allied with Germany during the First World War meant that Turkey could settle once and for all its long-running ethnic and religious feud with the Armenians, a community living in a province in disputed territory east of Turkey near the Caspian Sea. The Russians, principle allies of the Armenians, as well as the British and French could not come to their aid because of the war and they were left pretty much at the mercy, or lack of it, of the much stronger Turkish forces.
