Ovaherero Genocide Foundation

1914 Turkey (Ottoman Empire)


The Greeks also suffered the atrocities at the hands of the Ottoman Empire around the years of 1914-1923. It started with the deportation of thousands of Greeks and boycotting of their businesses, forced labor, which then turned into death marches, burning of villages, and massacres. Many also died from lack of food and diseases. Thousands of Greeks were forced to flee their villages and towns. The death toll of the Greek genocide hasn’t been agreed on, but the number varies from 350,000 to 1 million people.
