A huge caravan of Greeks leaves Amissos after having been ordered to evacuate the town. Packed in wagons, they leave their homeland behind, taking with them all the belongings they could carry. A violent clash follows when Turkish countrymen attack the procession. Many Greeks are killed and the Turks loot their belongings. Unseen in one of the wagons from some distance behind, Ifigeneia and Ali watch the raid in helpless horror, and witness the savage murder of a mother and her child.
Ifigeneia sees Vasiliki and Eugenia in the crowd and waves her hand to be seen, despite the danger of being detected.
