site aims at displaying original pictures of the Asia Minor Campaign (1918-1922)
as well as some unknown but significant documents which truthfully
describe how life in Smyrna was at the time near the total catastrophe of the
city. They are not only to document the social and the political life of the
period, but also to monitor some hidden elements of the situation that led to the
tragedy. Photographs, at a majority, take the place of texts and words in order
the independent historical Researcher to form its own opinion about the facts of
that black-letter era. Though, it must be clearly stated that this specific page does not
intent to misinterpret the real events neither to present the facts
biased in favour of the Hellenic party. It merely seeks for the truth, as a relief
for the thousands innocent souls brutally killed on the holy land of Ionia,
the millions of deported locals as well as of a brilliant civilization
lost for ever...
