Synopsis:
June 1914. Just before the outbreak of the First World War, the entire Greek population living on the coast of Asia Minor had to evacuate
their villages and flee to Greece, abandoning homes and land. This expulsion, happening during a difficult political and diplomatic period,
did not have the impact one might have expected. At the time French archaeologist Felix Sartiaux, and three colleagues were in the region
on an archaeological mission to discover traces of the city of Phocaea (now Foça in Turkey).
They were not only witnesses of this sudden attack but managed to save and help a considerable number of Greeks.
