100 years from the Asia Minor Catastrophe
The Alpha Bank Historical Archives and Aristotle University of Thessaloniki are jointly hosting the scientific meeting “The Refugees of 1922: A Critical component of 20th Century Modern Greek History”, to mark the 100-year anniversary from the end of the Greco-Turkish War of 1912-1922 and the Asia Minor Catastrophe. The meeting will be held in Thessaloniki, a city that took in a large number of refugees during the Asia Minor Catastrophe.
Distinguished speakers will shed light on different aspects of this difficult period of Modern Greek history and the refugee issue.
This event carries on the tradition of the Alpha Bank Historical Archives to hold international conferences and seminars centred around the Greek and international economic and social history.
