Number 31328 by Elias Venezis

This book is a harrowing memoir that recounts the author's experiences as a forced laborer during the Asia Minor Catastrophe. Captured by the advancing Turkish forces, the author, along with thousands of other Greek and Armenian men, is subjected to brutal conditions, forced marches, and labor in the inhospitable Anatolian landscape. Through his vivid narrative, the author not only shares his personal ordeal and the suffering of his fellow captives but also reflects on the resilience of the human spirit in the face of unimaginable adversity. This work stands as a poignant testament to the atrocities of war and the indomitable will to survive.
