An Indelible Memory: Commemorating the Greeks of Asia Minor

On the 100th anniversary of the destruction of Smyrna in 1922, the Boston Lykeion Ellinidon will join Hellenic organizations around the world to commemorate the survival and perseverance of the Greeks of Asia Minor.

The three-day conference will feature guest speakers, dance workshops, and other events. Together, we will discover the tragic history of Mikra Asia – and its vibrant, lasting culture.
