1911 Brittanica says[edit]

MARSIVAN, or Merzifun (anc. Phazemon ?), a town in the Amasia sanjak of the Sivas vilayet of Asia Minor, situated at the foot of the Tayshan Dagh. Pop. about 20,000, two-thirds Mussulman. It is a centre of American missionary and educational enterprise, and the seat of Anatolia College, a theological seminary, and schools which were partly destroyed in the antiArmenian riots of 1893 and 1895. There is also a Jesuit school. Marsivan is an unusually European place both in its aspect and the commodities procurable in the bazaar. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 3210 (talk) 17:10, 22 April 2007 (UTC).

IMHO, the current wikipedia article is a near whitewash. I'm not Armenian, but this town seems at the heart of the Armenian genocide--at least Ataturk's relocations probably should be mentioned.Jweaver28 (talk) 13:29, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
