  Dodecanese - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The current Greek administrative region of the Dodecanese (a subdivision of the South Aegean periphery) consists of 163 total islands of which 26 are inhabited.
By the time the Peloponnesian War ended in 404 BC, the Dodecanese were largely removed from the larger Aegean conflicts, and had begun a period of relative quiet and prosperity.
In 1943 the islands came under German occupation, and, although the Germans were driven out of mainland Greece in 1944, the Dodecanese remained occupied by Germany until the end of the war in 1945, during which time nearly the entire Jewish population was deported and killed in the Holocaust.

During the Turkish occupation the Dodecanese islands enjoyed a privilege granted by Sultan Suleiman according to which all Turkish generals, admirals and civil officials were forbidden to maltreat the islanders or interfere in their affairs.

By the Treaty of Sèveres in 1920 the Dodecanese islands, with the exception of Rhodes, were ceded to Greece.
