    Ottoman were avid record keepers. Ottoman archives from the period in question are open to everyone including foreign acedemics if they wish to study it. In their records it is said that Armenian population was ordered to relocate. Many government officials did not comply with this direction and were punished at the time. In 12 of these cases they were put to death. During the period of the Russian invasion many muslims were moved from the border areas to more in land areas.Number of muslims relocated were some 1.6 million. Some 700 thousand muslims died during relocation. Further 500 thousand were victims of the Armenian gangs. So what is this genocide we are talking about? Clearly horrible things happened at the time. Well we all should know by now war is horrible. By the way I am very sorry that many lost their lives, husbands, brothers, sisters, moms and dads. Shalom
