Lost Greeks

A collection of photographs showing Greek refugees since the late 1800's many of whom were orphans. This board is dedicated to finding "lost greeks", those who have lost family and relatives and are still searching for them. If you are looking for a relative message me and I will post your picture here. Add details which include who they are, where did the event occur, names of immediate family still alive and if you consider it advisable, your contact details. Good luck. God be with you.
