While many of us teach about the Armenian genocide, few today know what happened to the Greeks of Asia Minor, as well as to the Assyrians, who together lost more than a million people as part of one of first large-scale genocides of the 20th century, which Ottoman Turkey committed against its Christian minorities. Join IHMEC and The Asian Minor and Pontos Hellenic Research Center as we equip participants to return to their classrooms with deeper knowledge of the genocide, learning why, how, what, when, and where the genocide of the Greeks of the Asia Minor took place, including key historical antecedents that led up to the atrocities, as well as the aftermath and denial that still takes place.
Through the analysis and evaluation of primary sources, including Survivor narratives, interactive text and graphics, and diaries, participants will actively engage in a direct connection with the reflections of those involved in the genocide, and bring a more personal dimension to this often forgotten history.
