Onassis' story begins with unspeakable tragedy. The Turkish military took over the Onassis hometown of Smyrna (now Izmir) and intentionally burned it to the ground, killing up to 125,000 Greeks and Armenians. His aunt, uncle and baby cousin were burned alive. Another uncle was hanged. His beloved grandmother was beaten to death in the street. His father was imprisoned. At 16, Aristotle Onassis was the head of his family.
