Title Asia Minor: Contemporary Genocide or Modern Hellenic Tragedy?

The atrocities committed against the Anatolian Greeks during 1914-23 are examined within the legal framework of the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide of 1948. A brief critique of the Genocide Convention follows with a range of recommendations, specifically the establishment of an international ‘truth commission’, as a step towards acknowledging the large-scale persecution of the Anatolian Greeks.
