Greek woman from Smyrna, an important Aegean coastal town, today in Turkey. Many locales were named after Smyrna, notably in the USA. There's a "Smyrna" in the states of California, Delaware, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, North-Carolina & South-Carolina, Tennessee ... and two of them in New York. The original town itself cannot be called "Smyrna" however. The Turks insist that "Izmir", the Turkish mispronunciation of its name, must instead be used in all languages.

Greek freedom fighters, May 19 is the day of remembrance of the Pontian Greek Genocide (1916-1923). Records kept mainly by priests show a minimum 350,000 Pontian Greeks exterminated by Turkish troops and Kurdish para-militaries. Other sources including foreign missionaries mention 500,000 deaths, most through deportation and forced marches into the Anatolian desert. Greek cities (Pafra, Samsous, Kerasous, and Trapezous) endured massacres and deportations that destroyed their populations.

Pontic Greeks

Pontian Greeks lived in northern Turkey along the Black Sea. Near the end of WWI, suffering a similar fate of Armenians, Pontian Greeks began an armed resistance, leading to what became known as the Pontus resistance (αντάρτικο του Πόντου in Greek), which lasted until 1923, when most of the population were expelled from Turkey to Greece.
