When and how was our umbilical cord to the East cut?

The new history documentary of the Hellenic History Foundation (IDISME)

based on the correspondences of the journalist Kostas Missaelidis on the Asia Minor Campaign (1919-1922).

The tragedy unfolds through the writings of Missaelidis, Asia Minor war correspondent, journalist and poet.

From within the harsh battlefields and the ruins, the human drama emerges.
