Summary
"This book presents a series of studies by distinguished specialists related to the "Great Catastrophe," or the "Asia Minor Catastrophe," experienced by the Greeks of Asia Minor, Pontos, and Eastern Thrace during the turbulent years leading to the end of the Ottoman Empire, 1912-1923. The term is used to describe the persecution of the Greek minority in the Ottoman Empire, their expulsion, the death of hundreds of thousands of civilians and the destruction of the 3,000-year-long Greek presence in those lands."--Introduction
