On the ninetieth anniversary of the Treaty of Lausanne (1923), the Gennadius Library is organizing an event that focuses on the exchange of populations between Greece and Turkey in the aftermath of the Asia Minor campaign. Characterized as the “largest population movement in history”, the exchange of populations that the Lausanne Treaty proposed as a solution to the political stalemate created after the Greco-Turkish war of 1919-1922 created numerous demographic and economic upheavals. The two historians will present the views from both sides of the Aegean and will analyze the issues faced by Greece and Turkey.
The two presentations will be followed by discussion with the audience. The lectures and discussion will be in English. A short summary of the presentations in Greek will be available.
