The Asia Minor Catastrophe of 1921-1922 resulted in the 1.2 million Greeks of Asia Minor returning as refugees to Greece. Yet over a half century later, these settlers still claim a separate Asia Minor identity. This ethnographic study explores this phenomenon by looking at Kokkinia, an urban quarter in Piraeus, and discussing the factors that reinforce their separate sense of identity from mainland Greeks with whom they share a common culture, language, and religion
