Abstract

This article refers to the 1913–1923 genocide of the Greeks of the Ottoman Empire and aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the overall genocidal process. On the one hand, it offers an ideological, social, and political background and framework for understanding that process; on the other hand, it documents and analyzes the various empirical aspects and data, providing ample examples of genocidal acts. The paper aims at providing an understanding of the genocide and a sense of the Ottoman projects of destruction that included Armenians, Assyrians/Arameans and Greeks —and other, less-known ethnic groups—in an attempt at a total restructuring of Ottoman society and the creation of a Turkish Muslim national state.
