Smyrna: the remnants of a burnt cosmopolitanism

August 30, Turkey's Victory Day, celebrates the defeat of the Greek army in Asia Minor, while September 9 marks the anniversary of the 1922 burning of the once Belle Epoque city of Smyrna.

Some Greek traces have remained in Smyrna till today, although unearthing them proves hard work
