ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the internationally administered ethnic cleansing by the League of Nations which made use of the Greek-Turkish population exchange in Turkey. It mentions that the move was deemed devastating and traumatic for its participants as depicted in a traveling exhibit based on the book "Twice a Stranger" by Bruce Clark. It notes the irony of the exchange which has to do with its occurrence on the same time that the League of Nations debated for imposition of a Turkish minority treaty. It emphasizes that the exchange was also socially constructed as it ignores the material conditions from the loss of territory.
