Syrian-Ottoman Home Front in Argentina during the First World War
What is it about?
The article examines how Ottoman entrance into the First World War affected its émigré colonies in Argentina, exploring humanitarian aid campaigns and how civic activism in Argentina regarding the war in Europe created a space for the surge in nationalist sentiments, , often anti-Ottoman, among the Sultan's subjects.
Why is it important?
The article is important because it asserts that the home fronts of belligerent nations extended far beyond national boundaries and that Latin American nations, in this case Argentina, were involved in the war despite there being an official policy of neutrality.
