[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
At the end of the WW1, in May 1919, a Greek expeditionary force disembarked in Smyrna (Izmir) and set out to conquer the hinterland, penetrating into the heart of Anatolia. However, the Turks resisted, regaining the upper hand in August 1922 and retaking Smyrna on 9 September.

An agreement was signed on 11 October 1922.

A conference of all the powers interested in restoring peace to the Near East met in Lausanne in January 1923. The Turkish-Greek accord that resulted on 30 January provided for the repatriation of all civilians on both sides regardless of number

The Turkish-Greek conflict caused hundreds of thousands of persons of Greek origin to flee Asia Minor, while thousands of people of Turkish origin fled Thrace for Turkey.
