About the Event

On the occasion of the celebration of 120 years of diplomatic relations between Greece and Japan, the Japan Greece Society, in cooperation with the Embassy of Greece in Japan, will organize the following lecture at Otsuma Women's University in Tokyo.

Topic: September 1922, the catastrophe of Smyrna and the Japanese ship."

In September 1922, Greece was defeated in the Greek-Turkish War, and Greek Orthodox Christians in Asia Minor became refugees. The legend that Japanese ships helped Greek refugees while Smyrna was engulfed by fire has been spoken among Greeks to date. Whether this tradition is indeed a historical fact will be examined based on historical materials collected so far.
