Remembering Smyrna 1922

Wednesday, September 28, 2022 7pm to 8pm

Professor Michelle Tusan's talk commemorates the 100th anniversary and explores the lasting legacy of the destruction of Smyrna in September 1922.

The burning of the city by Turkish nationalist forces marked a final devastating chapter of World War I. Eyewitness testimony from diaries, press reports, naval dispatches and rare archival film footage about the events in Smyrna offer a new perspective on the end of WWI in the Middle East.

Opening remarks by the Honorable Ioannis Stamatekos, Consul General of Greece on Los Angeles.
