?Slavery

Romik Sarkezians
No. English were using refugees for road work. English were taking care of refugees and in exchange use them in similar work

?Romik Sarkezians what road was this? And why did the British need it built

Andie Revanian
The roads were built for Iran’s oil transport for WW1. The Brit Empire owned 100% of its oil. And the rest is history

My father worked for NIOC National Iran Oil Company and the British worker told him “we stick to your oil as shit sticks to the blanket!”He was happy when they brits got kicked out ,he always mentioned it…and hated them
