The story of the community of Satrouville, whose inhabitants are Greeks from Anatolia, forced to leave by the events of World War I and afterwards.
6 x 9
Kostas Pandazoglou writes about the fascinating Greek community of Satrouville, just outside Paris. Part of the Anatolian Greek diaspora, the Satrouville community traces its origin to the Greek-Turkish population exchange of 1923. Uprooted from Asia Minor, the Turkish-speaking Greeks were resettled in Greece, a completely foreign country, but a small number also made their way to France, settling in and around Beleville and Satrouville. Satroupoli tells the story of these Greeks, from their leaving Anatolia to their passage to France and the development of their unique community there. Pandazoglou is himself from Satrouville, the son of a immigrant from the Anatolian city of Usak.
