HORRORS OF ALEPPO, THE
By Martin Niepage
Higher Grade Teacher in the German Technical School in Aleppo Dr. Martin Niepage on behalf of the teachers at the school, made this eyewitness report, in 1916, to the German Government requesting them to intervene. This was first published in 1917 and was published again commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
Excerpt: When I returned to Aleppo in September, 1915, from a three months' holiday at Beirout, I heard with horror that a new phase of Armenian massacres had begun which were far more terrible than the earlier massacres under Abd-ul Hamid, and which aimed at exterminating, root and branch, the intelligent, industrious, and progressive Armenian nation, and at transferring, its property to Turkish hands.
