The main objective of the study is to illuminate the history of the Western Thrace Turkish community, whose existence as a minority was accepted by international treaties, in the period between 1945-1960, during which there were developments that significantly changed the world politics and history. The Western Thrace Turks are the Turkish community living under the sovereignty of the Greek State with the Treaty of Lausanne in 1923 and as a citizen of Greece. The main subject of the study is the Western Thrace Turks who settled in the region during the establishment of the Ottoman Empire and adopted this geography as a minority in the 20th century, especially the political developments that took place between 1945-1960. The Western Thrace Turks, who were excluded from the exchange with the Treaty of Lausanne signed in 1923 and officially under minority status under Greek administration, have undergone very variable processes due to the diplomatic relations between the two countries after 1930s. Western Thrace Turkish Minority was subjected to the fluctuating policies of the administration of the Greek State due to the strained relations between the years 1945, the end of the Second World War and the 1960s when the Cyprus Problem began to form. As a natural consequence of this situation, socioeconomic, cultural and political life of the Western Thrace Turkish Minority has also changed greatly. The main framework of the study is the situations of the Western Thrace Turkish Minority between 1945-1960.
