Anatolian Greeks that abandoned their lives in Gökçeada to head overseas nearly 50 years ago could return after the Education Ministry responded positively to a demand to reopen a local Greek minority school, according to the Aegean island’s residents.

Stelyo Berber, the chairman of the Protection, Solidarity, Improvement and Development Association of Gökçeada, said the school would begin to operate in September, possibly enticing Greeks outside of Turkey to return to the country.
