Sèvres 1920: The Making, Un-making, and the Afterlife of a Treaty

Vortrag von Ilker Ayturk (Bilkent University, Ankara)

The Treaty of Sèvres was the last pact to be signed in the aftermath of World War I, bringing the state of war between the victorious Allied powers and the Ottomans to an end. It was, however, scrapped in less than three years, in response to the rise of Turkish resistance in Anatolia and replaced by the Treaty of Lausanne in 1923. For a treaty that had such a short life, Sèvres cast a very long shadow. Indeed, not a day passes, even today, without Sèvres being mentioned in the Turkish press. What was Sevres and what were its contents? Why did it scar republican memory in Turkey so deep? When did the term "Sèvres Syndrome" appear in Turkish political terminology? This lecture will discuss these questions and examine if we can trace a pattern of collective remembrance and mark turning points.
