5/19/2013 Pontian Genocide Memorial Day. A genocide without recognition...
The Greek genocide, part of which is known as the Pontic genocide, was the systematic extermination of the Christian Greek population from its historic homeland in Asia Minor, central Anatolia, and Pontus during World War I and its aftermath (1914–23). It was instigated by the government of the Ottoman Empire against the Greek population of the Empire and it included massacres, forced deportations involving death marches, summary expulsions, arbitrary executions, and destruction of Christian Orthodox cultural, historical and religious monuments. According to various sources, several hundred thousand Ottoman Greeks died during this period. Some of the survivors and refugees, especially those in Eastern provinces, took refuge in the neighbouring Russian Empire. After the end of the 1919–22 Greco-Turkish War, most of the Greeks remaining in the Ottoman Empire were transferred to Greece under the terms of the 1923 population exchange between Greece and Turkey. Other ethnic groups were similarly attacked by the Ottoman Empire during this period, including Assyrians and Armenians, and some scholars consider those events to be part of the same policy of extermination.
 Quoting: [link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]




The Pontian genocide of 1916-1922 is the most tragic page of Pontian Greek history. The Pontians had suffered a lot throughout their history of nearly 3.000 years, but the genocide was the most terrible of their misfortunes, for it deprived the Greeks of the Black sea not only of their friends and relatives, but also of their native land. And it is evident that remembrance of the genocide is necessary not only for relatives and descendants of the lost – such terrible facts of human history must be known to all. For if people forget about the pain of other people, if they pass it by with indifference, they kill inside their souls a part of their “humanity” – and this must not be allowed to happen, lest tragedies of this kind might be repeated…

As if the Ukranian genocide gets any airplay?
They killed more of them and in less time but mostly the media pretends it never happened.
100 millions have died thanks to Marx philosophy of rule over gentiles and nobody cares or even understands why all of this always starts with the same participants, and always is managed by the same participants.

Why do we assume we've changed as human beings when really we just have more, nicer things?

I can imagine the smartest men & women among these people, at this time, and still - with all of their intellect - they found a way to hate, maim, and kill. We're no different today.

Same thing happened to Armenia by the same murderers (the "Ottoman Empire") at the same time.

Armenia asked for help from the United States, and was refused. So, they became part of the new USSR (Soviet Union) just so that they would get help and not be totally wiped out.

Hitler, when questioned about the genocide he was perpetrating, responded, "They didn't care what happened to Armenia, they won't care about what I do."

The only people who helped the Turks were the Jews, I wasn't expecting to read that to tell you the truth... But I know what they did to Armenians too. In fact, the book has a story of a (back then) child, whose home was next to an Armenian one, needless to say, both his family and the Armenian family was killed after the females (children and adults) were raped in front of the rest of the family. The kid was saved by a miracle.

I am a Greek Turk. Greece state had forced my grandfather to go to Anatolia. This is a mutual migration to create a unique nation of Greeks at Greece and nation of Turks at Anatolia.

My grandfather owned a lot of wealth at Greece but I even don't own a house at Anatolia now.

I think it is time to be friends. Let's forget the bad things that the former generations lived. We can not find a solution to this problem if we increase hate between these nations.

Anyway. History is full of terrible atrocities. Mass genocides in ancient wars should have taught us that this is NOT ok, but it hasn't. The same barbaric behavior we've shown in the past is still being repeated today. It just makes me sick. Why don't we learn?

I had never heard of the Ukrainian massacre until a few years ago when I worked with an Ukrainian immigrant. I thought he was BSing me except that he was so serious about it. I looked it up (holodomor) and it was truly horrible. It was brought up around here back during the gun grab debate as one of the reasons for citizens to remain armed.

Here is one of many links you can find on it.

[link to www.holodomorct.org]

And never refer to a Ukrainian as a Russian or Soviet (I don't recall which I called him), that is how I ended up getting my history lecture.

Now I will probably spend all morning reading about the Greek massacre, good god we're sick.

So, my grandma asked in scrabled turkish why they left the houses untouched. An old grandpa said to her "Those houses belong not to us. The Greeks will come one day and take them back."

After a while drinking ouzo and tsipouro with the Turks (alcohol is prohibited in Turkey because of Islam), my grandmother went to a Kemal Ataturk museum. After being inside the museum for about 5 minutes, a young man speaking the Pontian dialect came close to her and said "Why you are in the museum of our enemy. He killed us, Greeks." They started talking and he told her about the Greeks (written as Turks in the pappers) here who are secretly Christians and afraid of going public with that information.

I am aware of them, unfortunately it's really hard to find sources on how they started. I know that before them, things between Greeks and Turks were getting better day by day. Ofc, Greeks and Turks lived in the same towns and worked together then too. My mother's grandfather was from Cappadokia, in the city where the base of Grey Wolfs is now (unfortunately I don't remember the name of the city).

The turks nationalists drove them out of there and into Istabul. He was one of the last Greek citizens of Instabul to leave from there and one of the few to be pushed away from his house by the turks twice.

I would be more that happy to learn more about them if you are able to provide me with english sources.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't they sallute them now?

You know wrong bro, alcohol is not prohibited in Turkey however its under heavy taxation now because an islamic party (AKP) is in the charge of government now.In most villages people make their own wine.Because of latest increases in taxes i started to make my own wines too.

We have our own traditional alcoholic drink 'raki' which is very similar to ouzo.

Well, I didn't know how to name it, we don't have that kind of thing with alcohol and religion here lol

And of course I know about Raki! It's the same as tsipouro in taste, I don't thing they are different in the making process too. This is how Cretans call tsipouro, if you go there ask for Raki ;) We have many foods in common too!

Nice one BR, are you Pontian? I have family from Pontus too. :)
Recognition, like the Armenian genocide, is a political issue than anything else, more states slowly start to recognize the undeniable historical facts despite Turkey's threats, institutionalized denialism and revisionism. 2015 may be the year starting with the Armenian one, the pressure for recognition is very big in US and Obama too, 2015 will be a worldwide campaign, even US film-industry plans a couple of films on the subject for 2015, even in Turkey there is a some sort of change in the current stance by the educated/progressive Turks, they even held silent commemoration events in the last 2 years, Kurds have long ago officially recognized and apologized for the participation they had in it, many countries are on the brink of official recognition, long overdue.

Why do we assume we've changed as human beings when really we just have more, nicer things?

I can imagine the smartest men & women among these people, at this time, and still - with all of their intellect - they found a way to hate, maim, and kill. We're no different today.

Nice one BR, are you Pontian? I have family from Pontus too. :)
Recognition, like the Armenian genocide, is a political issue than anything else, more states slowly start to recognize the undeniable historical facts despite Turkey's threats, institutionalized denialism and revisionism. 2015 may be the year starting with the Armenian one, the pressure for recognition is very big in US and Obama too, 2015 will be a worldwide campaign, even US film-industry plans a couple of films on the subject for 2015, even in Turkey there is a some sort of change in the current stance by the educated/progressive Turks, they even held silent commemoration events in the last 2 years, Kurds have long ago officially recognized and apologized for the participation they had in it, many countries are on the brink of official recognition, long overdue.

They always try to pretend that Christians are never persecuted for their beliefs, and they point towards ancient history of the Crusades and the Inquisition as proof that Christians are the persecutors...

Plainly in the 20th and 21st centuries, Christians have been the MOST persecuted religion of that time...
