Fakat bu uyruğun onlar için hiçbir önemi yokken Kıbrıs meselesinde devlet tarafından siyasi bir koz olarak kullanıldılar. Yıllar içinde ağırlıklı olarak birbirleriyle evlilikler yapan, kendilerine İstanbul’da bir hayat kuran, mal mülk edinen yaklaşık 12.000 Rum, medyanın yoğun kara propagandası altında Kıbrıs sorunu bahane gösterilerek çok kısa bir süre içerisinde sınırdışı edildi, bankalardaki hesapları ve gayrımenkulleri bloke edildi, eğitim kurumları kapatıldı. Büyük çoğunluğu Yunanistan’ı hayatlarında hiç görmemiş binlerce Rum ülkeden sürgün edilirken yanlarına sadece 20 kilo eşya ile 20 dolar para almalarına izin verildi. Sürgüne gönderilenlere eşleri, çocukları, ortakları, sevgilileri de katıldı. Türkiye’de Rum; Yunanistan’da ise Türk olmakla suçlanan 50.000’e yakın kişi birkaç ay içinde bir daha geri dönmemek üzere şehirlerini, “polis”lerini terk etti. 1964’teki bu sürgüne odaklanan 20 Dolar 20 Kilo, terk etme, terk edilme, ortada kalma / bırakılma gibi  temalar üzerinden geçmiş, şimdi ve gelecek arasında  Cumhuriyet tarihinin gördüğü en büyük sürgün hikâyelerinden birini konu ediniyor ve yakın tarihin çok bilinen ve az konuşulan bu hadisesini 50. yılında yeniden tartışmaya açıyor. Μια απ΄ τις μεγαλύτερες ιστορίες εξορίας στην ιστορία της Τουρκικής Δημοκρατίας Ώς το 1964 τη Ρωμαίικη Κοινότητα της Πόλης αποτελούσαν δύο ομάδες, μία με ελληνική και μία με τουρκική υπηκοότητα. Ενώ όμως για τους ίδιους δεν είχε καμία σημασία η υπηκοότητα, χρησιμοποιήθηκαν από το κράτος ως πολιτικό όπλο στο Κυπριακό. Δώδεκα χιλιάδες Ρωμιοί, που με τα χρόνια είχαν παντρευτεί μεταξύ τους, είχαν στήσει τη ζωή τους στην Πόλη και αποκτήσει περιουσία, με δικαιολογία το Κυπριακό και βαλλόμενοι από τη μαύρη προπαγάνδα του Τύπου, σε ελάχιστο χρονικό διάστημα απελάθηκαν, δεσμεύτηκαν οι τραπεζικοί λογαριασμοί και τ΄ ακίνητά τους, έκλεισαν τα σχολεία τους. Στους χιλιάδες Ρωμιούς, που σε μεγάλη πλειοψηφία δεν είχαν δει ποτέ την Ελλάδα με τα μάτια τους, όταν έφευγαν εξόριστοι, δόθηκε άδεια να πάρουν μαζί τους μόνο 20 κιλά απ΄ τα υπάρχοντά τους και 20 δολάρια. Στους απελαθέντες προστέθηκαν οι σύζυγοι, τα παιδιά, οι συνεταίροι, οι αγαπημένοι. Περίπου πενήντα χιλιάδες άνθρωποι, στην Τουρκία «Ρωμιοί» και στην Ελλάδα «Τούρκοι», μέσα σε λίγους μήνες εγκατέλειψαν ανεπιστρεπτί την πόλη τους, την Πόλη. Η έκθεση 20 Δολάρια, 20 κιλά επικεντρώνοντας στις απελάσεις του 1964, με άξονα διαχρονικές θεματικές όπως το να εγκαταλείπεις και να εγκαταλείπεσαι, να μένεις παρατημένος και μετέωρος, καταπιάνεται με μια απ΄ τις μεγαλύτερες ιστορίες εξορίας στην περίοδο της Τουρκικής Δημοκρατίας και ανοίγει ξανά στην 50ή επέτειο το διάλογο για ένα απ΄ τα πιο γνωστά, αν και λιγότερο συζητημένα θέματα της πρόσφατης ιστορίας. — One of the biggest exile stories from the Republic period The ethnic Greek community in Istanbul had largely consisted of Turkish and Greek citizens up until 1964. Although their citizenship hardly mattered for them, the Turkish state used it as political leverage during the Cyprus dispute. The twelve thousand or so Greeks who had usually married among themselves and eventually built a life and acquired property in Istanbul were soon expelled from the country as a result of black propaganda campaigns launched by the media under the false pretense of the Cyprus dispute. Their bank accounts were frozen, immovable properties seized, private schools closed… While thousands of Istanbul Greeks—who, by and large, had never been to Greece in their entire lives—were being deported, they were only allowed to take 20 kilos of baggage and 20 dollars with them. The exiles were accompanied by their spouses, children, partners, and loved ones. Fifty thousand exiles, who were accused of being too Greek in Turkey and too Turkish in Greece, would soon abandon their home and ‘citizenship’, never to return. 20 Dollars 20 Kilos focuses on the forced deportation of Istanbul Greeks in 1964 and explores the biggest exile story of the Republic period through themes of resignation, abandonment and defenselessness / unprotectedness, and half a century later, opens to debate one of the most well-known, but unspoken incidents of recent history.
