The Greco-Turkish War and Legalisation of Ethnic Cleansing

Here's what we watched today with breakfast.

This episode of the 'Between The Wars' history series by the [Time Ghost] Crew is extremely well done in regards to available facts and information about what followed WW1 in regards to the Ottomans, Turkey, Greece etc. It is longer than many of their works because it is very well done, include a fair amount of maps and photos from the period and a large explanation of the politics involved.

It's conclusions on how these events affect World Politics and how nations, ethnic groups, and policies in regards to borders and immigration and ethnic cleansing are important.

Warning : it does talk about, in a general way, about the horrors of these events and there are some disturbing photos from investigations into the actions on all sides in the conflicts involved.

[The Ottoman Empire Did Not End Quietly or without repercussions to today.]
