About Aristotelis Onasis
Aristotle Sokratis Onassis (Greek: Αριστοτέλης Ωνάσης, Aristotelis Onasis; 15 January 1906 – 15 March 1975), commonly called Ari or Aristo Onassis, was a very prominent Greek shipping magnate of the 20th century. Some sources claim he was born in 1900 but that he later changed his date of birth so as to avoid deportation from Turkey.Onassis was born in Karatass, a suburb of Smyrna, Ottoman Empire (now İzmir, Turkey) to Socrates and Penelope Onassis ( maiden name Penelope Dologu). At the time of his birth, Smyrna had a very significant and prosperous Greek population. Aristotle had one full-sister, Artemis, and two half-sisters, Kalliroi and Merope, who were products of his father's second marriage (after Penelope's death) in 1912. According to the Greek Fire book, released in 2000, Ari's father Socrates Onassis came from a village called Moutalasski, near Cappadocia of Asia Minor, which is the present-day Nevsehir province, in central Turkey. Historically this was an area of king Midas kingdom Phrygia. Aristotle's father had a fleet of 10 ships with 40 sailors. This enterprise was a financial success enabling him to send Onassis and his sisters to prestigious schools. At the age of 16, Aristotle spoke four languages: Spanish, Turkish, English and Greek. After being briefly occupied by Greece (1919–1922) in the aftermath of the allied victory in World War I, Smyrna was re-captured by Turkey; the Onassis family substantial holdings were lost, causing them to become refugees fleeing to Greece after the Great Fire of Smyrna. During this period Aristotle lost three uncles and one aunt with her husband Chrysostomos Konialidis and their daughter, who were burned to death when the Turks set fire to a church in Thyatira where 500 Christians were seeking shelter at the Great Fire of Smyrna. In 1923, Aristotle Onassis left his home country for Buenos Aires, Argentina reportedly, carrying just $60 in his pocket and got his first job with the British United River Plate Telephone Company.
