ERZURUM

The position of the Turks in the city of Erzurum had been relatively good, at least when compared to other areas of the Ottoman East, until the breakup of Russian authority in the city. As Russian rule ended, the Turks began to experience at first indignities at the hands of the Armenians, then abduction and theft, and finally rape and murder. Turks were attacked in the streets and were little safer from roving Armenian bands in their homes.

The final massacre of Muslims in Erzurum began on 10 February 1918. On that day, a large number of Muslims were taken under the pretext of corveé labor, then were robbed and killed before the Kars Gate, which led out of the city of Erzurum. In the town itself, houses were broken into, pillaged, and burned, and thousands were killed. Ottoman authorities estimated 8,000 killed in and around the city. They described Erzurum as "a city of ruins."

It is probable that the rapid advance of the Ottoman army saved Erzurum from greater misfortunes. When units of the Ottoman army entered Erzurum, they found thousands of corpses of Muslims murdered by Armenians. Between the retaking of the city, on 12 March 1918 and 20 March, Ottoman soldiers had counted 2,127 male bodies and were continuing the enumeration and search. These were only the male bodies found in the city limits and counted in the first 8 days after the Ottoman entry into the city, only a portion of those killed.
