102 years are completed this year by the genocide of the Greeks of Pontus, when on 19 May 1919, ο Κεμάλ Ατατούρκ αποβιβάστηκε στη Σαμψούντα του Πόντου και δρομολόγησε τη δεύτερη και σκληρότερη φάση της Γενοκτονίας των Ποντιακού Ελληνισμού.
This is one of the darkest moments in history not only for the Greeks but also for humanity as a whole.. With the Pontian Genocide, a lively part of Hellenism that fought for its survival for about a year was destroyed from its ancestral homes. 3000 years…
The methods used by the Neo-Turkish movement during the period 1914-1923 against the Greek Populations of the point, ήταν οι σφαγές, the displacement, exhaustion in hardship, torture, hunger and thirst, and death marches in the desert.
We pay a minimum tribute and pilgrimage to 353.000 Hellenic Pontians, slaughtered, were raped, that their lives were looted, στους επιζήσαντες ξεριζωμένους που εκδιώχθηκαν βιαίως από τις προαιώνιες εστίες του Πόντου. The perpetrator is Turkish nationalism, who devised dozens of means of violence to uproot the Pontians from their land.
It is our highest duty to preserve our historical memory and without a trace of revanchism we ask for the obvious: the recognition of the Pontian Genocide and the surrender of Turkey to the historical crisis.
The dead and the living demand justice.
