Kuru building 2a: this photograph shows the empty rock-cut graves of the original Roman tomb; I'm not displaying its entrance.

This tomb was reused as a mass grave, where Armenians killed in 1915 were dumped: before, I collated the most relevant and informative English and Turkish-language sources on the planned forensic excavation of the mass grave and its destruction by the Turkish military; and after, I visited the site, photographed it and examined the indefensible excuses offered by the Turkish Historical Society in their attempt to cover up the Turkish military's destruction of the site. The other annotated photographs are available here: 2b; 2c; 2d.
