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.

Refugees in Greece, 1922

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).
