Poverty Bay Herald
Aug 30, 1917.
Reuter’s Agency is informed that a
memorandum has been addressed to M.
Holitis, Greek Minister for Foreign
Affairs, by refugees from Aivali, a town
situated on the coast of Asia Minor, op-
posite Mytilene, protesting against the
policy of extermination followed by the
Turks against the Greek inhabitants
there. These Hellenic refugees declare
that more than 30,000 Greeks, mostly
women and children, have been forcibly
deported into the interior of Asia Minor.
Their houses and property have been
destroyed and all kinds of ‘unimaginable
atrocities’ committed upon them.
