In Europe, the mass annihilation of the Jews, Slavs and other national minorities was the program of the German National-Socialists that was carried out by the state through the army, mostly in gas chambers. While in Western Armenia and Armenian-inhabited places of Turkey the annihilation of the Armenians was carried out by the state machine of the empire in its full strength and by its scum: not only the regular army but also the ordinary Turks, Kurds, Circassians, criminals released from jails and other elements were engaged in killing.
