Djevdet Bey

Djevdet Bey, Jevdet Bey, Cevdet Belbez[1] (Modern Turkish: Cevdet Bey ) was the governor of the Van vilayet of the Ottoman Empire during World War I and the Siege of Van. He is considered responsible for the massacres of Armenians in and around Van.[2] Clarence Ussher, a witness to these events, reported that 55,000 Armenians were subsequently killed.[3][4] He succeeded Governor Tahsin Bey.

He was portrayed by Elias Koteas in the 2002 film Ararat.[5]

He was the brother-in-law of Enver Pasha.[1]
