Free Screening of Smyrna Documentary at Rutgers University, Dec. 9

PISCATAWAY, NJ – In commemoration of the grim 100th anniversary of the Smyrna Catastrophe, the Modern Greek Studies Program, the Department of Classics at Rutgers University, and the Elytis Chair Fund present a free screening of Smyrna: The Destruction of a Cosmopolitan City 1900-1922, written and directed by Maria Iliou and with historical consultant Professor Alexander Kitroeff on Friday, December 9, 8 PM, at Center Hall at the Busch Student Center, Rutgers University, 604 Bartholomew Road in Piscataway.

Including “footage and interviews with individuals with family ties to Smyrna’s Greek, Armenian, Jewish and Turkish residents, this documentary presents a balanced account of the destruction of the richest city in Asia Minor,” as noted by the Hellenic Film Society USA.

“The film depicts the Ottoman port of Smyrna as a cosmopolitan paradise where people of various faiths and nationalities, including significant populations of Greeks and Armenians, lived harmoniously,” the New York Times reported.
