Relief Efforts During World War One
As the war got under way, other organizations started to help. Such as: -The National Catholic War Council -The Jewish Welfare Board -The Young Women's Christian Association
The refugee crisis had 2 main causes: the first was the occupation of enemies that influenced the people to flee along retreating troops. The second cause was the
state's use of force against it's own people- in other words, organized deportation.
- In 1914-15, Belgian refugees arrived in France and the Netherlands in big numbers. Around 160,000 refugees found shelter in the UK, where the government watched them closely.
- Serbia's defeat to Austrian forces led soldiers and civilians to leave, amounting to one third of the total pre-war population.
- Armenians who managed to escape or survive the massacres carried out by the Turkish troops were scattered across the Middle East and Russia.
Responses to the Armenian Genocide
The Armenian Genocide was the horror committed against the Armenian people of the Ottoman Empire by the young Turkish government which held the power at the time.
In 1915, leaders of the Turkish government made a plan to remove and massacre Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire.
The international community convicted the genocide.
During ww1, The Defence of Realm Act (DORA) was used to ensure food that food shortages never happened. One of the essential aims of DORA when it was first introduce was to prevent food shortages.
- Food production and agriculture were essential parts of Canada's war effort, and Ottawa encouraged farmers and food processors to boost their output.
