I have known about this book for quite a few years. My uncle highly recommended it to me. He surprised me, because I never imagined him as a reader.

Usually, when I've put something down for over a year at a stretch, I'll pick it up, give it one more try, and then send it out the window into the nearest burning bush. But the last time I picked up...more
yüzyıllarca yan yana yaşayan halkların hiç yere birbirine düşman olması, birbirinin kanını dökmesi ne büyük trajedidir. başka da diyecek bir şey yok, kitabın son satırında dediği gibi: kardeşi kardeşe kırdıranların allah belasını versin.
A true story of a man from Izmir and the adventures he went through the whole period before and after World War I and the destruction of Minor Asia, showing how the opinion of Greeks towards Turks changes by the influences of the major powers and how things changed from a peaceful co-living to a hating state.
A very touching story indeed
In 1919 she moved with her family to Smyrni (Izmir) but following the destruction of 1922 she fled to Greece. In Athens she completed her general education having as teachers the then literary figures Kostas Paroritis and Sophia Mayroeidis-Papadakis amongst ot...more
