After WWI abouth 150.000 Armenians returned to Cilicia. They ware defended by the Armenian Legion, which had been formed in 1916 to liberate the Cilicia. The Armenians aimed to unite Cilicia and Untied Armenia or to get autonomy under the patronage of France. But by Sevres Treaty the great part of Cilicia was given to Turkey and a small part of Cilicia to Syria. It was a tragedy for Armenians who had suvived from Genocde and returned to their homeland.
After the Treaty of Sevres failure it was planned to create Armenian National Home in Cilicia and Armenian Mesopotamia and to concenter the Armenan refugees there. But that idea didn’t find ant solution. France handed all Armenian lands to Turkey by Ankara Treaty. The long lasting and hot discussions of great Powers about the Armenian Question were failed. By the Conference of Lausanne the discussions of creating Armenian National Home in Cilicia were finally closed.
