Antonis Nikolopoulos and Tom Papademetriou – Aivali: A Story of Greeks and Turks in 1922. Reviewed in The Guardian

(Review by Thanos Kyratzis.)

"The traumas of the Turks and Greeks forced to flee their homes a century ago are drawn with moving simplicity and speak clearly to today’s refugee crisis.”

“Soloup’s art and words offer a glimpse of the strength of the human spirit, showing how people on both sides of those waters were persecuted, yet also found the power to forgive and help each other. There is no hollow empathy found here. Soloup demonstrates how problematic it is when human beings are treated like statistics. Aivali does not shy away from showing the complexity of human lives—on either side—and the ongoing struggle for some, still searching for a place to call home.”
