    A Debate on the Centenary of the Treaty of Lausanne

    Join us for a special debate in Bremerhaven on the 1st December!

    The year 2023 marks the centenary of the Treaty of Lausanne, a pivotal moment in history that marked the end of the Greco-Turkish War, legalizing the past expulsion of both Greeks and Turks and initiating the famous "population exchange" between Greece and Turkey. This treaty also played a crucial role in amending the Treaty of Sevres, making it the ultimate peace treaty to conclude World War I.
    For all that, “Lausanne” marks an important date for our exhibition ‘After the Great War: A New Europe 1918–1923.’ As part of this year's exhibition presentation in Bremen, the ENRS is organizing a debate that will delve into the role of 20th-century migration history in shaping today's collective European memory.

    The event will take place at the German Emigration Centre in Bremerhaven, a site of great historical significance and a place that embodies the memories of European migration to overseas countries in the 19th and 20th centuries.
