Description

Join us for private screening of Lethal Nationalism: Genocide of the Greeks 1913-1923, a riveting documentary that features firsthand accounts from survivors who witnessed the horrific atrocities during the forced expulsion of Greeks from Pontos, Asia Minor and Eastern Thrace by the Ottoman Turks. This documentary chronicles the systematic and brutal destruction of Greek communities which had flourished for more than three thousand years. It took the Ottoman Turks less than ten years to destroy them. Noted scholars and academics from around the world have recognized this as the first genocide of the 20th century.

The Asia Minor and Pontos Hellenic Research Center (AMPHRC) is a historical society and a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization founded in January 2011. Our goal as a research center—unique in its kind—is to document and disseminate information about the Greek communities of the later Ottoman empire, and study the expulsion of the Greeks from  their ancestral homelands in Asia Minor (or Anatolia), Eastern Thrace, and Pontos.

We seek to create resources about the topic that can be made available to larger audiences in the English speaker world. Though our main focus is the study of the Ottoman Greeks, our perspective is broad, and we develop an interdisciplinary community of scholarship in collaboration with Armenian and Jewish scholars to gain better insight into the larger framework of the events of that time.
