  • This cartoon appeared in a Smyrna newspaper in October 1918, five days before the Turks signed an armistice with the Allies, which ended the Ottoman Empire's participation in World War I. The newspaper welcomes British and Indian prisoners from the interior of Anatolia to the city. Smyrna served as the repatriation center for British and Indian POW's at the end of the war.
