    It began in 1915, during the war, but continued on until about 1923.

    The conditions that led to the genocide dated back to a previous series of fracas between the Ottomans and the Russian Empire.

    I'm no historian... but military events like that certainly don't contribute towards world peace...

    Just saw a bit about that... a book written about it actually... on NHK...

    Yes, part of WWI. WWI was the Turks excuse for the genocide....the Armenians would see invading allied Russian troops as liberators, Christian freedom above Islam.... blah, blah.....So, the Muslim Turks murdered all of them (about 2 million).

    It happened during WW I, yes, but was blow-back from the Young Turks revolt against the Sultan, restoring the constitutional monarchy. Many Armenians were politically connected to the Sultan, and became scapegoat for a certain Col. Enver Pasha. It's much more complicated than my answer, but yes.

    It can somehow be assimilated, but the motivations were different, as the oppression of the Armenians began long before world war one started, and carried on even after it ended. The world war simply provided some additional pretext and concealment since everyone was busy looking somewhere else.

    I would say yes. It certainly happened during WWI.

    BUT the genocides  against the Armenians( and other Christian minorities such as Greeks and Assyrians) began in 1909 and until the Republic of Turkey was founded in 1923.
