The Genocide of the Ottoman Greeks

The period of transition from the collapse of the Ottoman Empire to the foundation of the Turkish Republic was characterized by a number of processes largely guided by a narrow elite that aimed to construct a modern, national state. One of these processes was the deliberate and planned elimination, indeed extermination, of the Christian (and certain other) minorities. According to demographic studies, the numbers are stark: In 1912 the areas of Asia Minor and Thrace were inhabited by about 4-5 million Christians and 7-8 million Muslims; by 1923 only 250-300,000 Christians remained.

The volume was edited by Tessa Hofmann, Matthias Bjørnlund and Vasileios Meichanetsidis During the event there will be an introduction to the volume by Dr. Hofmann and comments by Prof. Marios Evriviades and Dr. Vlassis Agtzides with some closing thoughts by the Publisher. The presentation will be in English language.
