"How many perished in all? There had probably been aproximatly 3 million people living east of Sivan in 1914. Kurds probably slightly outnumbered Armenians, but both were around the one million mark, with a largely Turkish urban population of about 600,000. The total Armenian death toll, was included those living in Cicilia and central Anatolia, was probably in the order of one million. Very few survived in eastern Anatolia. Probably 500,000 Kurdish civilians also perished, together with combatants probably totalling very approximately 800,000."
