From the Ambassador in Constantinople (Wangenheim) to the Reichskanzler (Bethmann Hollweg)


No. 258
Pera, April 27, 1915

Further to his report to Your Excellency dated the 12th inst., Consul Roessler sent a report here by telegram on the 20th inst. that according to the latest reports from the principal of the American College in Aintab, Dr. Merrill, which Mr. Roessler terms as reliable, the Armenian population of Marash, Zeitun and all of the villages as far south as Hassan-Beyli will be deported by the authorities insofar as it is wealthy or influential. 35 families have already been taken away from Zeitun and two further sections are on their way. The men are hereby separated from the women; the women are escorted by soldiers.

Mr. Roessler notes in this connection:

The only information at the local Armenian Patriarchate was that the Armenians from Antioch and Suediye had been taken away, apparently already some time ago.
