Abandoned Village in Russia
"In 1923 the Greeks living in Kayakoy, Turkey departed after a population exchange between the Greek and Turkish governments was mandated, leaving it an abandoned village. Some two million families, Greek Christians and Turkish Moslems alike, were uprooted from the homes and the country they had lived in, many for generations. Today some 500 original homes remain in Kayakoy, all now in ruins."
