This study aims to take a closer look at the pre-war persecutions of Aegean Greeks as an aspect of violent Turkification, i.e. as more than an isolated (series of) incident(s) with little or no relation to other instances of CUP group persecution or to any overall CUP goal of Turkification. The sources consist of published reports, memoirs, etc., and scholarly works, with an emphasis on unpublished Danish archival material that supplements existing knowledge of the events.
