Greek refugees clamouring to escape Smyrna, September 1922. Κάπου μεσα στο πλήθος που προσπαθούσε να σωθεί ήταν και η μαμά μου 2 ετών τότε με την γιαγιά της Ευανθία ('εχασε τους γονείς της στήν καταστροφή). Ετσι κατατρεγμένοι απ όλους έφτασαν στην Ελλάδα (πρώτα στον Πειραιά) και μετά ξεκίνησε η ταλαιπωρία τους περιπλανώμενοι για 2 χρόνια μέχρι να φτάσουν τελικά στη Θεσσαλονίκη την φτωχομάννα.

Refugees from the interior of Asia Minor await to board ships at the port of Smyrna. It is worth noting there are only old men, women and children, all males between the ages of 15-60 having been sent into the interior and massacred. (August 1922).
