Refugees' documents for refuge house after the population exchange
Population Exchange Museum (The Foundation of Lausanne Treaty Emigrants)
The 1923 population exchange between Greece and Turkey was based upon religious identity, and involved the Greek Orthodox citizens of Turkey and the Muslim citizens of Greece. The "Convention Concerning the Exchange of Greek and Turkish Populations" was signed at Lausanne, Switzerland, on 30 January 1923, by the governments of Greece and Turkey. These are refugees' documents for the Papoukidis family's stay at a refuge house.
