In August 1919, John Harbord is sent by President Woodrow Wilson to the Middle East to investigate the feasibility of the Balfour Declaration. He is also to report on Turkish-Armenian relations in the wake of the Armenian Genocide. “The footage is a remarkable record of an area wrecked by war (…). In the end, Congress ignored Wilson’s mandate request, paving the way for the Soviet invasion of 1922.” (Jay Weissberg)
