In June 1921, 750 Greeks from the Havza region were deported to the interior of #Turkey. The group included 140 Greeks from the village of Kovaniutz (Κοβάνιουτς). Deportees were marched to Amasya - Tokat - Diyarbakir - Sanliurfa and then Aleppo (Syria). From Aleppo they were placed on trains and transported to Beirut. They were then boarded onto a ship and reached Greece towards the end of 1922. Only 350 of the 750 deportees survived. #GreekGenocide

The Greek Genocide Resource Center is currently working on the map below which shows the 'known' massacres of Greeks which occurred during the #GreekGenocide. The project is a work in progress and we hope to have it finished by the end of the year. It does not include deaths resulting from deportations. Massacres were identified through news reports and eye-witness testimonies. Click on each location to read details of the massacre.

"...it's the same genocidal instinct by groups whether it's ISIL against the Yazidis or the Turks against the #Armenians and the #Greeks that are happening. And the similarities, the relevance; the same mountains, the same desert, the same borders, they're drowning in the same sea..."

Only days before the Allied landing (April 25) at Gallipoli in 1915, Gallipoli Greeks were deported from their home to the Turkish interior without food and water, their families broken up and scattered among Muslim villages where they were forced to embrace Islam. #GreekGenocide #AnzacDay #LestWeForget

Konzes (Gr: Κοντζές/Κοντσές) was a Greek settlement in the kaza of Karamursel in the Nicomedia (Izmit) region of Turkey. There were 220 well-to-do Greek families living there just prior to the #GreekGenocide. Konzes was a beautiful place and during Summer it served as a holiday destination for the wealthy residents of the region. On the 18th of February 1921, Kemalist regular forces under the command of Cemal of Nicaea, as well as irregulars and the police entered Konzes and began the looting. Greeks were then slaughtered and their homes burnt to the ground. The Hellenic Army landed in the region on the 20th of February 1921 and as they approached Konzes, they found the land covered with corpses, men's and women's clothes, hands, feet, noses, ears and fingers. Hellenic war correspondent Kostas Faltaits arrived at Konzes in June of 1921 and witnessed the ashes from the razed town. He noticed a strong odour coming from the ruins and cinders of homes; evidence that the corpses of the unfortunate inhabitants had not yet fully decomposed.
