Castellorizo

    Abstract

    In 1943, British forces occupied the tiny island of Castellorizo. Heavily bombed by the Germans, the island's Greek inhabitants of approximately 1,000, were evacuated, first to Cyprus and then to Palestine. Many eventually made their way to Australia. This article evidences the vicissitudes of that evacuation and resulting migration and settlement in Australia.
