Thessaloniki 1922

Asia Minor Hellenes that reached Thessaloniki in 1922 were in their hundreds of thousands. Thessaloniki was only 10 years old since the liberation of the city from the oppressor. Yet, not only the refugees were welcomed and reached a place where they could safely continue their lives, but also flourished as they made this place their home.

Let us celebrate this event. Let us give praise to Thessaloniki which has always been a welcoming city to any refugee,
