Eastern Anatolia Region

The Eastern Anatolia Region is a geographical region of Turkey. The region and the name "Doğu Anadolu Bölgesi" were defined at the First Geography Congress in 1941, it has largest geographical area of all regions of Turkey. Because of the Armenian Genocide, it is the Turkish region with the lowest population density. Beginning in 1880, the name Armenia was forbidden to be used in official Ottoman documents, in an attempt to censor the history of Armenians in their own homeland; the government of Sultan Abdul Hamid II replaced the name Armenia with such terms as "Kurdistan" or "Anatolia". The Sublime Porte believed; the process of “nationalization” of toponyms was continued by the Kemalists, who were the ideological successors of the Young Turks, gained momentum during the Republican period. Starting from 1923 the entire territory of Western Armenia was renamed “Eastern Anatolia”; the word Anatolia means “sunrise” or “east” in Greek. This name was given to the Asia Minor peninsula in the 5th or 4th centuries B.

C. During the Ottoman era, the term Anadolou included the north-eastern vilayets of Asia Minor with Kyotahia as its center; the numerous European, Armenian, Persian and other primary sources did not confuse the term Armenia with Anatolia. This testifies, inter alia, to the fact that after the loss of its statehood the Armenian nation still constituted a majority in its homeland, recognized by Ottoman occupiers as well; the Armenian Highlands have been situated to the east of Anatolia, with the border between them located near Sivas and Kayseri. Therefore, it is incorrect to refer to Armenia as part of "Eastern Anatolia". In the 17th century, when the Armenian Question was not yet included into the international diplomacy agenda, the terms "Anatolia" or "Eastern Anatolia" were never used to indicate Armenia. Furthermore, the "Islamic World Map" of the 16th century and other Ottoman maps of the 18th and 19th centuries have indicated Armenia on a specific territory as well as its cities. Armenia, together with its boundaries, was unequivocally mentioned in the works of earlier Ottoman historians and chroniclers until the end of the 19th century.

Kâtip Çelebi, a famous Ottoman chronicler of the 17th century, had a special chapter titled “About the Country Called Armenia” in his book Jihan Numa. However, when this book was republished in 1957, its modern Turkish editor H. Selen changed this title into “Eastern Anatolia”. Osman Nuri, a historian of the second half of the 19th century, mentions Armenia in his three-volume Abdul Hamid and the Period of His Reign. In the 1960s, the Swiss airline Swissair removed the nomenclature'plateau arménien' from the maps provided by their planes at the request of the Turkish ambassador in Bern.

The area of the region is 146,330 km ². The total population of the region is 6,100,000 and 5,906,565; the region has the second most rural population of Turkey after the Black Sea region. The migration level is high and population density is lower than the average for Turkey; the migration toward other Turkey's regions and toward foreign countries is higher than the natural population increase, a fact, leading to a slight decline of the Region's population. The average altitude is 2,200 m. Major geographic features include plains and massifs. There is some volcanic activity today. Massifs and mountains There are three massif lines running north–south: To the north, the Çimen Dağı, Kop Dağı and Yalnızçam mountains In the centre, the Munzur, Karasu Dağı, Aras Dağı mountains To the south, Southeast Tauros, Hakkâri, Buzul mountains; the volcanic mountains Nemrut, Süphan, Tendürek and Ararat are in the region. Plateaus and plains The largest plateau in the region is Erzurum-Kars Plato; the region includes the Van Lake basin.
