Event Description

Author: Kristina Gedgaudaitė Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies

The Greco-Turkish War (1919-1922) in Asia Minor and the Population Exchange that followed led to the forced displacement of more than 1.5 million people who became entangled in the nation-building processes of both Greece and Turkey. Memories of Asia Minor examines the memories that shaped Asia Minor refugee identity, focusing on the ways in which these memories continue to reverberate in contemporary Greek culture one hundred years since the end of the war.
