“Aftermath” illuminates the fate of the survivors, including Armenian women sold in slave markets or taken in Moslem harems, the forced Islamization of children, starvation and destitution with hundreds of thousands of refugees seeking food, and the continued destruction of Armenians in 1920 by Turkish nationalist forces. Covering the period May 1918 – July 1923, the poster also addresses the international efforts to help shelter and care for survivors, as well as diplomacy around treaties that sought to atone for the injustices committed against the Armenians, but were largely abandoned, giving impunity to the Turkish state and paving the way for the official government denial that continues today.
