I was going through this article on the Greek Genocide (1914-1922), and stumbled upon this quote from the 1935 publication, Ankara: An interpretation of the new becoming in Turkey, by Norbert Bischoff:
"Only through the annihilation of the Greek and the Armenian tribes in Anatolia was the creation of a Turkish national state and the formation of an unflawed Turkish body of society within one state possible."
which is found in the book Atatürk in the Nazi Imagination by Stefan Ihrig. The word "tribes" picked my interest quite a bit, and I was wondering if there are any sources on the general racial views that the Nazis had towards the Greeks. I would really appreciate it if anyone (perhaps an expert on racial issues in Europe?) could provide a summary on this with relevant sources. Apparently, simple googling does not bring up anything particularly insightful.
- Edit 1 (13/12): @Lucian spotted that the quote is not from a Nazi publication, but from a book by Norbert Bischoff, who did not subscribe to the Nazi ideology. I believe that the Wikipedia article's use of the source is incorrect (which is not particularly surprising). Admittedly, the motivation to ask the question from the quote seems a bit off now, but the question still remains.
