The Greek Relief Committee: America's Response to the Greek Genocide (A Research Note)
Full recordShow full item record
AbstractIn studies of the various relief efforts launched in response to the fate of Ottoman Christian minorities in the early twentieth century, much attention is given to the American Committee for Armenian and Syrian Relief and, in particular, to its successors under different names, especially the Near East Relief. The role of other American-based aid organizations has been largely overlooked. This paper serves as an introduction to the Greek Relief Committee, a New York City–based organization that worked alongside other relief organizations from 1917 until 1921, administering aid to the Ottoman Greek population.
