This happened in April 24, 1915 – 1917 and the ones killing was the Ottoman Empire. What happened was that they exterminated 1.5 million Christian Armenians, mostly Ottoman citizens within the Ottoman Empire and its successor state, the Republic of Turkey

Well I mean there is a good reason why the Ottoman Empire was a failure and the people rose up. The Ottomans had to suppress a lot of rebellions and revolutions because the people hated the empire so much.
It was horrible what happened.1

I have and it wasn't just the 1.5 Million Armenians who died (and the 250,000 killed in the following Turkish-Armenian war, accounting for 1/2 of the total Armenian population); it was also 900,000 Greeks, 750,000 Assyrians (3/4ths of the population), 500,000 Yezidis (2/3rds of the population) and 100,000 Lebanese (1/3rd of the population). I'm 1/4th Lebanese and my family suffered as well. Mat Talaat, Enver and Jamaal BURN IN HELL!!!
