Weekly Photo Challenge : Wrong
The ghost village of Kayaköy. Once a thriving Greek village, this town of over one thousand houses, two churches, fourteen chapels, and two schools, was completely deserted in 1923 when the 25,000 Greek inhabitants living there, along with more than a million other Greeks living throughout Turkey were repatriated to Greece through a massive government mandated population exchange between the two countries following the Greek war of independence. Since then, the village of Kayakoy, as it is called in Turkish, or Karmylassos, as it was called in Greek, (which had been continually inhabited since at least the 13th century) has stood empty and crumbling. Seems wrong to me and such a shame.
