Greetings my brothers,
This is not suggestion but this is apologize from thinking Muslims, we're sorry about what happen
563 years ago, when Mehmet II conquered Constantinople and oppress your Orthodox Christian people :'(
That was our shameful and sinful history, and we're not proud at all. And when he transforming the
great cathedral Agia Sofia into a mosque, that was not reflecting Islam, that was not the right way.
So we're sorry about that shameful tragedy of ours :'( And we hope someday we'll return that Agia Sofia
to you Orthodox Christian.
We're sorry and I'm sorry

You have to change your colored glasses when you deal with the history of Epirus.
Suliot uprising against the Ottomans was not a Greek struggle, it was an Albanian uprising.
Suliots joined Greeks late, and that because they had no other allies. If some eventually identified as Greek that's another story.

΄Εχεις κάνει απίστευτη δουλειά! Συγχαρητήρια!!!. Και πραγματικά αν τα βιβλία Ιστορίας που διδάσκονται στα σχολεία τα
παιδιά μας γράφονταν από ανθρώπους σαν εσένα, τότε σίγουρα η Ελλάδα δεν θα ήταν σήμερα έρμαιο του κάθε
λαθρομετανάστη που σφάζει και βιάζει και για τον οποίο εγώ πρέπει να αισθανθώ οίκτο και συμπόνοια γιατί είναι
“ευάλωτος ο καημένος”.
Τα σχολικά βιβλία κάνουν μία ωραιότατη πλύση εγκεφάλου στα παιδιά μας και περνάνε μηνύματα παγκοσμιοποίησης.
Στο βιβλίο της Γλώσσας της Δ’ δημοτικού , που είναι μαθητής ο γιός μου, κάνει λόγο για ένα παγκόσμιο σχολείο παιδιών
όπου όλοι είναι ίσοι και με τα ίδια δικαιώματα. Το βιβλίο αυτό καλεί τους μαθητές να μπουν στο διαδίκτυο και να
διαβάσουν για σχετικά θέματα. Γίνεται επίκληση στο συναίσθημα γιατί προβάλλουν στα μικρά παιδιά εικόνες με μάνες
που κρατούν μωρά στην αγκαλιά τους και υποτίθεται πως έρχονται από ζώνες πολέμου ενώ αποκρύπτουν τις εικόνες
των χιλιάδων ανδρών λαθρομεταναστών που εποικίζουν τη χώρα μας και αφαιρούν ανθρώπινες ζωές χωρίς καν δεύτερη
Συνέχισε την καλή δουλειά σου, η οποία αξίζει να βγει και σε βιβλία , μήπως και καταφέρει ο πολυπολιτισμικός Νεοέλληνας
να μάθει την Ιστορία του τόπου του και πάψει να άγεται και να φέρεται από τον κάθε πληρωμένο δημοσιογράφο, πολιτικό
κλπ. Εγώ πάντως θα βάλω σίγουρα το γιό μου πολλά κομμάτια Ιστορίας να τα διαβάσει από τη σελίδα σου και ειδικά αυτήν
της Ελληνικής Επανάστασης του 21.
Τέλος, επειδή πέρυσι στο σχολείο που υπηρετώ, δίδασκα και Ιστορία κάναμε το κεφάλαιο του Μεγάλου Αλεξάνδρου στην
Α΄ Γυμνασίου από την αντίστοιχη σελίδα σου!
Σου εύχομαι καλή δύναμη και καλή συνέχεια...

Ευχαριστω πολύ γιά τήν απάντησί σου.
Χαίρω πού συνεχίζεις νά ασχολήσαι μέ τήν Ελληνική Επανάστασι τού 21 καθώς καί μέ τό ότι σχολιάζεις,
ταυτόχρονα, κάποια γεγονότα μέ αναφορά στό σήμερα.
Επειδή κάποια επίκαιρα σχόλιά σου είναι διάσπαρτα μέσα στά ιστορικά κείμενα καί δέν είναι προσβάσιμα σέ όποιους
δέν διαβάζουν τά ιστορικά κείμενα, ίσως, αυτά τά σχόλια, νά πρέπη νά συλλεχθούν καί νά ταξινομηθούν σέ ιδιαίτερο
άρθρο, όπως έκανες μέ εκείνο τής Νέας Τουρκοκρατίας καί νά αναρτηθούν αυτοτελως.
Είναι αξιέπαινη αυτή η ενασχόλησί σου καί πολύτιμη η προσφορά σου - θά γίνεται πολυτιμώτερη όσο
η Ελλάδα θά συνεχίση νά εκτουρκεύεται. Εύχομαι νά τελειώσης τήν εργασία σου καί νά τήν εκδώσης σέ έντυπη
μορφή, όπως επιθυμείς.

I’m from Aintab. My name is Volkan. I’m inspecting your website. I think there is so many interesting informations. History is important
and must be knows by everybody. In this country the history written in a different way. Your website explain everything on the other angle.
If you look at opposites perspectives you can find different things.
Novadays this country trying to come face to face with his history. But everybody need to know the truth. But as you know the truth is just with you.
On the other hands i want to know you. Who you are and where do you live ? your job. Your life. Your sufferings come from the past.

Σελίδα γιά Μέγα Αλέξανδρο
Ευτυχώς που υπάρχουν τέτοιες σελίδες και μαθαίνουν τα παιδιά μας Ελληνική ιστορία!!! Αν περιμέναμε από τα σχολικά βιβλία ή τους διδάσκοντες καθηγητές τότε θα μέναμε μόνο
στα αίτια - αφορμές και στα αποτελέσματα των μαχών και των πολέμων. Αποφεύγουν δυστυχώς να μιλούν στα παιδιά για τις μάχες και περιορίζονται μόνο στο να τονίζουν τον
αντιρατσισμό που επέδειξαν διάφορες ιστορικές προσωπικότητες όπως π.χ. ο Αλέξανδρος!!!
Δεν αναφέρεται πουθενά ως ελευθερωτής των Ελλήνων της Μικράς Ασίας αλλά
αναφέρεται ως ο πρώτος αντιρατσιστής ηγέτης απέναντι στους λαούς που κατέκτησε. Και όλες αυτές οι μάχες κατά τις οποίες συνέτριψε τους Πέρσες και όχι μόνο ήταν στα
πλαίσια του αντιρατσισμού;
Εξαιτίας αυτής της παραποίησης της ιστορίας μας φτάσαμε σήμερα δυστυχώς στην αμφισβήτηση της εθνικής μας ταυτότητας και στην απώλεια της εθνικής μας ακεραιότητας.
Να συνεχίσεις αυτό που ξεκίνησες. Εγώ φέτος δίδαξα Αλέξανδρο στην Α΄Γυμνασίου από τη σελίδα σου!!!

Good afternoon from Lyon in France,
I was making a research on the "Greek Empire", when I found your website.
I was totally ignorant of the persecution of Greeks by the Turks and had no idea of what the Greeks actually endured.
Thank you for putting this website online, I was able to learn a whole part of your history that I never knew existed, since I was only 7 years old in 1955...
I am fluent in both French & English, but not in Greek, which is a language I never studied... so, I don't know what some of your videos show or say, although with others,
there are subtitles and it's easy to see what happens by the photographs.
Again, I just wanted to thank you as I learnt about the Greeks what I had never learnt until this afternoon.
With kind regards
Mrs A Gauchet, Lyon, France

You have a fantastic site. My only suggestion would be to drop the words "Byzantium" and "Byzantine" after the introduction, and go back to what the enemies of the empire of the
Greeks called it, namely The Empire of the Greeks; and its inhabitants either Greeks or Romans (rum) and what Western people in the Middle Ages called it, namely The Empire of the
Greeks, and its people Greeks or Romans; and what its historians called it, namely The Empire of the Greeks, and its people either Greeks or Romans. I would just use The Empire
of the Greeks instead of "Byzantium" and Greeks instead of "Byzantines" throughout the site. Best, Δαριος.

Τέλεια η σελίδα για την επανάσταση του 1821. Έδειξα τη σελίδα αυτή στο γιό μου (μαθητής της Β΄Δημοτικού) με αφορμή τη γιορτή της 25ης Μαρτίου και ενθουσιάστηκε.
Βέβαια λόγω της ηλικίας του δεν κατάφερε να διαβάσει όλα τα κείμενα αλλά αυτό που τον εντυπωσίασε ήταν οι φωτογραφίες. Μακάρι να υπήρχαν τόσο καλογραμμένα
κείμενα και τόσο ωραίες φωτογραφίες στα σχολικά βιβλία. Έτσι τα παιδιά μας θα μάθαιναν την πραγματική ελληνική ιστορία όπως την μάθαμε και εμείς στου "παλιού"
τύπου σχολείο και δεν θα παρακολουθούσαν άθλιες τηλεοπτικές σειρές, όπου παραποιείται πλήρως η ιστορία του έθνους μας και υπερτονίζεται η ειρηνική συνύπαρξη του
Τούρκου κατακτητή με τον κατακτημένο Έλληνα! Αν είναι ποτέ δυνατόν να δεχτεί ένα ολόκληρο έθνος αδιαμαρτήρητα να ζει υπόδουλο για 400 ολόκληρα χρόνια!
Ακόμα και ένα μικρό παιδί μπορεί να καταλάβει ότι αυτό απλά δεν γίνεται! Συνέχισε την καλή δουλειά μήπως και μάθουμε τελικά ιστορία οι Νεοέλληνες μέσα από τέτοιες σελίδες!

You can keep your filthy fairy tales for yourself. We Muslims are not the rapers and the robbers like you are. Istanbul was freed from the Christian terror and the people were
happy because of the return of justice. Your leaders terrorized your own people. What a pity for the those who your lies. The Greeks killed the pregnant Muslim women by
sword into their stomachs. You degraded yourself in a manner that could be only seen from the polytheists before. That is why you lost and lose. Today you become worse
because you cooperate with the polytheists who make men and cows to gods against the Muslims who believe that Jesus is among the most noble of the messengers of Allah.
You are not aware in which deep hole of hell fire you drop yourself. The only way to save yourself from eternal Hellfire is to repent to Allah and turn to Islam.
The victory of Islam will be completed although you dont want it.
There is only Allah that has the right to worshipped.
And there is only Muhammad to be followed for this.
I told you the truth. So I am not guilty of your sins.
Islam is the only religion that will be accepted on judgement day.
Islam is the only religion that is pure monotheism.
Peace be upon those who follows the guided way.

I was doing research on the Genocide committed upon early European Earth (White Skinned) Spirituality People and located your site. Very sad that when the circle returned to
Christians in particular areas during the 19th and 20 th centuries or call it KARMA returned.
Genocide by anyone, Christian or Muslims and so forth during the 19th and 20th, and 21st centuries is very sad and pitiful indeed.
In America e.g., over 50 million Indigenous People were murdered by Christians.

The year was 1970. I and my wife to be, Ellen Michelsen, visited Greece for the Ahepa Convention. I somehow decided to take a plane to Istanbul. This was unlikely of me as
I had a fear of flying. When we arrived in Instambul we made a visit to Aghia Sophia. While we were all in a single file line encased with a velvet rope. I decided to escape under the rope
and enter the center of the church. I started to chant, "Soson Kurie ton Laon Sou" or Save Lord this thy people and bless thine inheritance"
I looked at the crowd I left and saw fear all over there faces, they feared for my safety. I was immediately surrounded by several Turkish officers. The leader asked me "
Are you a Greek from Greece or a Greek from America?" I replied, I am a Greek from America. He took on a comical air and replied, "Oh, you Greeks from America are more
fanatical than the Greeks from Greece. We should like to give you a private tour of Aghia Sophia.''
I was aware that he wanted to get me away from the crowd and I obliged him but what I was about to see shocked me forever.
I and my fiance were accopmpanied by a guide who spoke English flently. The first thing I notice was a large marble column with the fingerprints of a hand embedded in the ivory.
I remembered the stories of how the Turks entered the Church where Greek women, men and children entered seeking sanctuary.
I inquired of my guide and he replied that was a mistake of one of the contractors. I said, "Come on now, in this beautiful edifice, they are going to leave a flaw like that? I told him
my version of events and he admitted that's what the Greeks say.
Next, against the wall of the church with two columns in front of the space, my wife felt a cold draft on what was a very hot day in August. When we inquired, our guide told us
that's where the Patriarch was hung.'
There are many such stories yet our church fathers in America fail to relate them to us. It has been many years that my experinces took place, 1970, and many Greeks have visited
Aghia Sophia but I read no reports as mine.
Why are Greeks keeping secrets from Greeks which could inspire them and elevated their faith in Orthodoxy?
I wish someone would write me that reads this letter and gives me a clue.

Thank you for your detailed account of Greece's freedom. I was wondering if any of you could tell me the title of a movie I used to watch at my yiayia's when I was growing up.
It was most likely black and white, but maybe early color and it showed the Greek Revolution, including a scene of the Souliotisses dancing at Zalongo. It was a really great film,
and I can't find it as my yiayia can no longer remember the title. My email is axelGRease81@gmail.com. Thanks again for your hard work and helping to ensure our history is not
forgotten. - Alexandros Dounas

Der Verein der Volkermordgegner (SKD) ruft seine Mitglieder, seine Freundinnen und Freunde und jene turkischen Staatsburger auf, die sich der historischen Tatsachen bewusst sind,
sich mit den Volkermordopfern und ihren Nachkommen zu solidarisieren. Er ruft sie alle auf, an Gedenkfeierlichkeiten teilzunehmen, in der Turkei und im Ausland, in Armenien und
Griechenland und uberall, wo sie stattfinden.
Um der Volkermordopfer der armenischen, griechischen und suryo-aramaischen Volker zu gedenken, ihre Trauer und das Leid zu teilen, die durch den Genozid entstanden ist,
lasst uns eine Blume niederlegen!
Um unsere Trauer und Scham uber die Verleugnung des Volkermordes durch die bisherigen Regierungen der Turkischen Republik auszudrucken, lasst uns eine Blume niederlegen!
Lasst uns eine Blume niederlegen, damit der turkische Staat den Volkermord vom 24. April 1915 anerkennt, die Opfervolker um Verzeihung bittet und den daraus resultierenden
Verpflichtungen nachkommt und alle Hindernisse vor Frieden und Volkerfreundschaft beseitigt!

BASKIN ORAN (Arώivi)
Osmanlύ’nύn alfabesini bile reddeden bu όlke, Osmanlύ’nύn bu en bόyόk gόnahύna sahip ηύkmasύn artύk. Yetti
Evet, birηoπunuzu huzursuz ettik, φzόr dileriz. Ηόnkό bayramύn hemen ardύndan internette imzaya aηύlacak olan ώu metni hazύrladύk: ‘1915’de Osmanlύ Ermenilerinin maruz kaldύπύ Bόyόk Felβket’e duyarsύz kalύnmasύnύ, bunun inkβr edilmesini vicdanύm kabul etmiyor. Bu adaletsizliπi reddediyor, kendi payύma Ermeni kardeώlerimin duygu ve acύlarύnύ paylaώύyor, onlardan φzόr diliyorum’.
Gelen hakaret ve/veya tehdit mesajlarύyla bayramdan sonra mahkemelerimiz ilgilenecek. Bu meselenin Ermenilik veya Tόrklόk deπil, έnsanlύk meselesi olduπunu anlamayanlar da ilgim dύώύ. “Fwd” tuώuna basύp yollanan maket mesaj ώφyle diyor: ‘Gerηekten bir ‘Tόrk’ olarak atalarύmύza, vatandaώlarύmύza yapύlan bu katliamlarύ gφrmezden gelen vicdanlarύnύz rahat mύ?’ Bir baώkasύ aynen: ‘[Φldόrόlen Tόrklerle] bir kan baπύnύz olduπunu da unutmayύnύz’. Bu zihniyetin kύsa vadede onmasύ mόmkόn deπil.
Onun iηin bendeniz bu yazύyύ temelde bir vicdan taώύyan insanlarύn duyduπu huzursuzlukla ilgili olarak yazdύm sadece: ‘Kabul ediyorum, 1915’te όzόcό olaylar yaώanmύώtύr ama bu tek taraflύ deπildir. Soykύrύm hiη deπildir. Eπer karώύlύklύ φzόr dilenecek ise ben varύm’.
Bir diπeri: ‘Soykύrύm demekten vazgeηsinler, elin ώusu busu meseleden elini ηeksin, ben o zaman zorunlu tehcir iηin Ermeni kardeώlerimden her platformda φzόr dilerim. Ermeni olaylarύ bir ‘genocide’ deπildir, όzόntό verecek katliamlardύr. Olmadύ mύ, oldu. Ama bize de oldu’.
Ermeniler de Mόslόmanlarύ φldόrdό
Temelde doπru. Ben bunu Taώnak yayύnlarύna (Armenian Weekly, Asbarez, vd.) Temmuz 2008’de verdiπim rφportajda sφyledim (ayrύca bkz. Radikal, 17-20 Aπ. 2008). Tabii, ne φlηόde “karώύlύklύ” olduπu biraz tartύώmalύ. Bu tartύώmaya φnce “toplu φldόrme” kavramύnύ tahlille baώlayalύm. Dόnya yόzόnde bu όη temel biηimde olmuώtur:
Durum I: Bir devlet iηindeki farklύ gruplar/halklar birbirini φldόrόr. άzόcό olmakla birlikte bu durum izah edilebilir bir durumdur.
Durum II: Bir devletin halkύ yabancύ bir devlet tarafύndan φldόrόlόr. Bu da izah edilebilir bir durumdur ve normalde “savaώ” adύ altύnda vuku bulur.
Durum III: Bir devlet kendi azύnlύk grubunu/halkύnύ bizzat φldόrόr veya φldόrόlmesine gφz yumar. έώte bunun izah edilebilecek tarafύ olamaz. Ηόnkό Devlet denilen kurumun tek bir varlύk nedeni vardύr: Vatandaώύnύ φlόmden korumak.
ήimdi devam edelim. Azύnlύk Ermenilerin de ηoπunluk Mόslόmanlarύ/Tόrkleri φldόrdόπό gφrόldό. άη farklύ dφnemde:
1) 19. yόzyύlύn son ηeyreπinde. ήφyle: 1806-1847 arasύ isyan eden Kόrt beylikleri daπύtύlύnca muazzam bir otorite boώluπu doπdu. Kabak, doπrudan Doπu Anadolu Ermenilerinin baώύna patladύ: O zamana kadar her yύl altύn yumurta (haraη) toplamakla yetinen beyler yok olunca Kόrtler tavuπu kestiler yani bφlge ekonomisinin yegβne direπi Ermenileri yaπmalamaya ve φldόrmeye baώladύlar. 93 Harbi’nin azdύrdύπύ “Gβvur’un malύ helβldir” ortamύnda, bu yaπmaya bir de ήeyh ήamil’in 1859’da Rusya’ya yenilmesinin ardύndan Anadolu’ya perperiώan gelen Kafkas mόltecileri katύlacaktύr.
Devlet oralύ olmadύ ηόnkό zaten 1839 Tanzimat’ύn gayrimόslimleri eώit ilan etmesinin bόyόk tepki yarattύπύ bir ortamda Mόslόman’a karώύ gayrimόslimin haklarύnύ savunacak deπildi. Tuzu kuru έstanbul Ermenileri ve Patrikhane de kulaklarύnύ tύkadύ.
Sonunda, D. Anadolu Ermenileri canlarύnύn ηaresine silahlanarak baktύlar. έlk Mόslόman φldόrmesi budur. Yani, Durum I. Tabii, devlet baskύsύ altύndaki bir gayrimόslim azύnlύk, Halife’nin yφnettiπi Devlet desteπindeki Mόslόman ηoπunluk’u ne kadar φldόrebilirse, o kadar. Bunun ne kadar “mukatele”, yani “karώύlύklύ” olduπunun takdiri size ait. Ama en hafif yorum herhalde ώu: Millet-i Sadύka durup dururken patlamadύ.
Dahasύ, Devlet bu ηatύώmayύ engellemediπi oranda, Emperyalizm enfes bir mόdahale olanaπύ yakaladύ. Olay bundan sonra Durum I’den derhal Durum III’e dφnόώecektir, ηόnkό kendi sebep olduπu Batύ mόdahalesinden όrken Abdόlhamit, Kόrtleri Hamidiye Alaylarύ adύyla Doπu Ermeni kφyleri όzerine gφnderecektir. Aynen, 5 Numaralύ Diyarbakύr Askerξ Cezaevi’nin yarattύπύ PKK’ya karώύ devreye sokulan Hizbullah ve Kφy Korucularύ gibi.
2) Birinci Dόnya Savaώύ’nύn sonunda. 1915 yapύlύp bitirilmiώ, Anadolu Ermenilerden “temizlenmiώ”tir. Ermenistan Ermenileri intikama giriώirler: Durum II. Kazύm Karabekir Paώa hemen mόdahale edecektir.
3) 1973-1985. ASALA 43 Tόrk diplomatύnύ katleder. Amacύ, unutulmuώ 1915’e dikkatleri ηekmektir. Ηeker de. Tόrkiye baώta, herkes 1915’i ilk defa φπrenir.
1915 ise tam tamύna bir Durum III. Bu nedenle de rezaletin son perdesi. ‘Ruslara yardύm etmemeleri, orduyu arkadan vurmamalarύ iηin cepheyi temizledik’ diye kendimizi aldatmayalύm hiη. Kastamonu ve Bursa da mύ Rus cephesiydi? Ya Tekirdaπ ve Edirne? έttihat Terakki’nin Derin Devlet’i olan Teώkilat-ύ Mahsusa’nύn katilleri Ermeni vatandaώlarύnύ Trakya’dan bile kaldύrύp Suriye ηφllerine, yani savaώ cephesine sόrdό.
Kadύn ve ηocuklar da mύ orduyu arkadan vuruyordu? Birkaη bin komitacύyύ vurmak yerine Anadolu’nun 1,5 milyon Ermenisi etnik-dinsel temizliπe uπratύldύ. Bύrakύn φldόrόldόler mi yoksa yolda soπuktan mύ φldόler’i. Tek ώeye bakύn: Anadolu’nun bu otokton (yerli) insanlarύ elli beώ bin kiώi kaldύ bugόn. Gerisi Almanya’ya ηalύώmaya mύ gitti? Bόtόn dόnya biliyor bunlarύ, bir tek biz duymak istemiyoruz.
Geηen gόn Ankara’daki diplomatik ηevrelerde laf arasύnda duydum: “Yargύηlarύnύzύ AB hukuk uygulamasύnύ incelemek iηin davet ettik, pasaportlarύ olmadύπύnύ φπrendik”. Ηoπu hiη yurtdύώύna ηύkmamύώ. Φzellikle merak ediyorum e-postayla bana siyaset bilimi φπreten “genηler” acaba hiη yurtdύώύna gittiler mi. Orada hiη Ermenilerle konuώtular mύ. Yoksa her ώeyi Tόrkiye’de “tahsil” alarak φπrenme sonucu mu “biliyor”lar. Hey gidi, “Bu kadar cehalet ancak tahsille mόmkόndόr” diyen Sakallύ Celal.
Ermenilerle konuώsalar; dedeleri nereden sόrόlmόώse oranύn kφylό Tόrkηe’sini kullandύklarύ gerηeπi dύώύnda, bu insanlarda iki ώey onlarύ ώoke edecektir:
1) Tόrk devletinin έNKΒRI onlarύn ulusal kimliπinin tek belkemiπidir;
2) Sύrf bu έNKΒR yόzόnden “Soykύrύm” kelimesi onlarύn tek tatmin biηimidir.
Onun iηindir ki ώimdi diasporanύn ώahin olanlarύ bizim bu “Φzόr” iώinden pek hoώnut deπil. Hatta, bir biηimde sabote etmek isteyenleri de ηύkabilir. Ηόnkό bir kere, Tόrkiye insanύna “Senin deden Nazi’ydi!”den baώka hiηbir ώey sφylemeyen “soykύrύm”ύ kullanmύyoruz, bu kelimenin bόyόk PR (halkla iliώkiler) kolaylύπύ saπladύπύnύ keώfetme φncesinde Ermenilerin kullandύπύ “Metz Yeπern”i (Bόyόk Felaket) kullanύyoruz. έkincisi, 1915 rezaleti inkβr edilmeyince Ermenilerin tahrik edilme katsayύsύ dόώόyor. Fakat bizim derdimiz deπil bόtόn bunlar. Bunlarύ sφyleyiώimin tek sebebi, bizdeki “tahsil” almύώlarύn ne yapmakta olduklarύnύ kendilerine gφstermek.
Bizim derdimiz, sabah kalkύnca aynaya bakabilmek. 85 yύl geη kalmύώ bir iώi artύk baώlatmak. Devlet’in Ermenistan’la nihayet normal iliώkiye geηme sόrecine paralel olarak Ulus’un 85 yύllύk “tahsil” yόzόnden dόώtόπό bu vaziyeti sona erdirmek. Geηmiώimizle nihayet yόzleώerek φzgόrleώmek.
Ηόnkό kendi geηmiώimle yόzleώmeden ben baώkalarύna hesap soramam. Ancak bundan sonra sorabilirim diasporanύn ώahinlerine: “Niηin Ermeni komitacύlarύn D. Anadolu’da yaptύklarύnύ kendi halkύnύzdan sakladύnύz?” Ηόnkό benim o rφportaj ηύkύnca mektuplar geldi: ‘[Yόzyύlύn son ηeyreπinde] Ermenilerin Tόrkleri φldόrdόπόne dair hiηbir φrnek hatύrlayamύyorum. Bu vaatler ve sφzlerle dolu bir dφnemdi. En baώta, birilerini φldόrebilmeleri iηin silahlanmalarύ lazύmdύ ve silah falan taώύmύyorlardύ’. (Radikal, 19.08.08). Ulusalcύ kardeώlerim, gφrdόnόz mό milliyetηinin “bilmesi” nasύl bir ώey? Gφrdόnόz mό “tahsil”i? Gφrdόnόz mό kendinizi Ermeni aynasύnda?
Φzόr Kόltόrό’nό yerleώtirmek zordur
έώimiz ηok zor. Ηόnkό “Mόslόman mahallesinde salyangoz” satύyoruz. Φyle bir mahalle ki, her ώeyden φnce “Φzόr Dileme Kόltόrό” yok; sadece “Otomatik Savunmaya Geηme Kόltόrό” var. Sen otururken gelir ayaπύnύ ezer, bύrakύn φzόr dilemeyi, hayretle baktύn diye bir de suratύna dik dik bakar. Asansφre girer, bύrakύn gόnaydύn demeyi, yόzόnόze bakmaz ve ηύkacaπύ kata kadar da mecburen havalarύ seyreder.
Bφyle bir mahallede “Φzόr Diliyoruz”. Ankara’ya kaηan 1915’in Muhacirin Umum Mόdόrό ήόkrό Kaya’yύ dahiliye vekili, Tehcir’in όnlό Bitlis ve Halep valisi Abdόlhalik Renda’yύ TBMM reisi yapmύώ bir όlkede.

Oysa, farkύnda mύsύnύz, Φzόr Dileme Ηaπύ geldi: έspanya’da savcύ, Franco dφnemini soruώturmaya baώladύ (Bianet, 17.10.08).

"The Turkish troops rampage first through the Armenian quarter, and then throughout the rest of the city. They looted homes, raped women, and murdered untold
thousands. Turkish soldiers were seem dousing buildings with petroleum. Soon, all but the Turkish quarter of the city was in flames and half a million refugees
crowded the watefront, desperate to escape. Twenty- one allied battleships were anchored in the harbour - their captains under strict orders not to rescue the
Greek and Armenian men, women, and children who were being tortured, raped, and killed before their eyes".

Herbert Adams Gibbons, the author of several admirable books on international affairs, was in the courtyard of the Adana Government building when the massacre
of 1909 broke out, and he attests with feeling to the crimes by the Turks. No more trustworthy witness could be found than Mr. Gibbons.
I have but recently come from the interior of Turkey, where I lived eight months. With my own eyes I have seen thousands upon thousand of Greek families tramping
over the snow-covered mountains of that country. I have seen groups of 3,000 to 4,000 refugees moaning, freezing, dying, with typhus, gangrene, pneumonia,
starvation, insanity - mothers so weak they could not lift their dead babies from their backs where they had been strapped.
I have watched dogs and vultures eat so many bodies that I can tell now just where a dog will start on a fresh carcass for the choicest pieces, and his whole modus
operandi until the bones are clean. We have pleaded with officials for mercy to the spectres that still survived to allow them to be taken to the American Hospital for
treatment. Oft- times permission was refused. In any case, every refugee we did not treat had to be O.K.'d by a callous Turkish Sanitary Inspector, who had
less sympathy for the patients than he would have had for a dog. He begrudged them their lives.

Subject: Αnother piece of evidence
The New York Times
July 31, 1919
TURKS PARBOILED 250,000
Charges that Turkish officials decimated the Greek population along the Black Sea Coast by 250,000 men, women and children living between Sinop and Ordu
without the shedding of blood, but by “parboiling” the victims in Turkish baths and turning them out half-glad to die in pneumonia or other ills in the snow of an
Anatolian Winter, are made in a letter from Dr. GEORGE E. WHITE, representative of the American Committee for relief in the Near East, made public yesterday.
Dr. White said that the Province of Bafra, also where there were more than 29,000 village Greeks, now less that 13,000 survive, and every Greek settlement has
been burned. The number of orphans, including some Armenian and Turkish children, in the entire district, it was said, aggregated 60,000. Since the armistice, the
doctor wrote, many of the deportees have been returning to their ruined homes.
NOTE: TORTURE! MURDER! PLUNDER! Was the order of the day. This is another piece of evidence, from reliable sources, of the horrendous Turkish crimes
against the Greek population of Pontos. Yet the Turks for too long now have the insolence to deny so shamelessnessly.

I was researching "Talaat Bey" on Google and I discovered your wonderful website.
Thank you for your efforts, which provide your visitors with a wealth of facts and homage to the fallen Christians of Asia Minor.
I don't have any relatives who are from Asia Minor, but I have been to Turkey, have heard their lies, and have read many books about the heartbreak and the unbelievable evils commited by the Turks to the Christians of Asia Minor. It makes my blood boil to know that a nation of Turks continues to lie about the genocides, and that even some foolish folk outside of Turkey downplay it, or deny it!
I think, "God, where were you when those poor people suffered so? Why didn't you intervene? And WHY do you continue to let the Turks get away with it?!"
And then I remember that Holy Scriptures says, "Vengeance is MINE, I will repay, says the LORD." That is my only consolation. God, have mercy.
Well, my sentiment and feeling for those dear people is deep. And yours is too, so much so that you have dedicated this marvelous site for the world to see.
Thank you so much, may God bless you!

This is a small answer to all those (Turks) in this forum who scream every time some one reminds them the horrible crimes their fathers and forefathers
committed to all other races living inside the borders of their country or outside. That proves the magnitude of ignorance of their history and they find it very
offensive to learn it from outsiders.
The English politician of the 19th century William Gladstone in one of his works, in the year 1876, about the so called "Eastern Question", said:
"Since the black day that Turks firstly appear in Europe they proved to be in their total as the most inhumane type of the humanity. Wherever they went,
a wide line of blood followed their passage. Wherever their rule spread, the civilization disappeared. They everywhere represent the government
of violence, against to every sense of justice".
The German writer of the 19th century, Johan Pilfer from Nuremberg, declared towards every direction that: "Turks are the worst enemy of the humanity."
The Jew-Turk sightseer of the 17th century Evlia Tselebi, describes, as an ocular witness, the occupation of the Persian town Tavride by Turks (1634):
"After Tavride were occupied , they made all the people slaves and demolished all the houses, not leaving a stone on a stone. They all
became rich, to the last soldier, from the pillage. In Murat's order the army entered the famous park of Sabani, they demolished all the kiosks,
burnt all the trees and destroyed all the vegetation to the point that one couldn't see any trace of cultivation like if this happy field was never
cultivated since the Adam's days".
George Horton, Consul General of the U.S.A in Smyrna during the periods 1911-1917 and 1919- 1922, writes :
"Immediately after the voting of the Constitution, the first step of the ruling Turkish race was to strengthen their superiority with suppression
measures, even with killings. Turks at the same time, decided to force all the non Turkish races to become Ottomans in language, in laws, in customs and
tradition....The new Turks never indented to give equal freedom to all the races that had the misfortune to depend on their mercy."
The Armenian historian Vakn Nantrian writes:
"Armenians were killed with knives, swords, axes, and hammers, by the Turkish soldiers and paramilitaries in order to save munitions.. Some were
massy thrown in the Black sea and the Euphrates river which overflowed so much, from the women's and children's corps, that changed current. Tens
of thousands of Armenians were burnt alive in stables."
The Turk general Mehmet Behim Passa said:
"In the whole Islamic history can not be found similar cruelty."
The Austrian Consul in Turkey in his telegram addressed to his minister on the foreign affairs, Baron Fon Bourian, on 30/11/1916 mentioned that:
"On the 26th of November Refet Beis (Turk minister on the foreign affairs) confessed to me that: "We must completely destroy Greeks like we
did with Armenians."
The western priest J. Lepsius, wrote on the 31st of July 1915:
"The anti Hellenic and anti Armenian expulsions of Greeks and Armenians were two stages of the same programme of extortion of the Christian
population of Turkey".

God Bless you, your site is wonderful and informative. History must be told, written, in every way possible, whenever possible. Unfortunately Turks
do not have the class and decency to admit what happened and sincerely (hopefully sincerely) offer a hand in friendship to their neighbors on all sides,
not just Greeks, for now and the future. DO TURKS REALIZE HOW RIDICULOUS THEY LOOK BY TRYING TO DENY THEIR ANCESTORS' ATROCITIES?
It seems that their barbaric and aggressive mentality has not changed at all. It seems that their plan is to gradually saturate Europe.
With 15 children per family this won't take long at all, after all, they are so directed by the Koran.

Arm the Spirit, 1 December 1996
A Turkish deputy from Tansu Ciller's True Path Party (DYP) yesterday revealed that Turkish paramilitary organizations are responsible for arson fires in
Greece's islands while, at the same time, an article published in the pro-government Turkish daily "Yeni Safak" provocatively boasted in its title:
"We Burned Rhodes."
According to the DYP deputy Sedat Bucak, the perpetrator of these fires was Abdullah Chatli, the leader of the extremist group "Grey Wolves". Chatli was
recently killed in a notorious car accident in Turkey which brought to light the relations between Turkish mafia and the government.
These revelations came to confirm reports the Greek authorities already had in their hands, according to which, the fires that have devastated the
Greek islands every summer were an actof arson performed by specially-trained forces of Turkish agents.
Mr. Papandreou pointed out that these disclosures by themselves constitute a criminal act which, in conjuction with Ms. Ciller's statements
("it is an honor for those who shoot for Turkey"), should trouble the international community.

It seems impossible to believe that more than 300 fires started in 3 days by accident, or Greek arson, and not by terrorists, yet this is what the
environmentalists and the socialist party say.
It seems the terrorists have resented Constantinople's use of "Greek fire" for the last 500 years. They would use this low tech arson as a method

What a wonderful site!!! I was reading with great thirst and crying at the same time. Thank you to all the people who had an input in creating it. Please continue the wonderful work. I love the photos the historical information.
My grandparents, from my mothers side where born and brought up in Izmir (my grandfather) and Antalya (my grandmother).
My father Italian, born in Izmir (when the Italians had sent army there in 1919?)His mother was Greek his father Italian.
Wow! so much history so much to learn.
In 1989 I visited Turkey Antalya and Izmir with my mother as she really wanted to conncect with her roots. She also spoke Turkish as that was the spoken language used at home in Greece. Her grandmother spoke very little greek but these greeks were definitely more greeks than the mainland Greece.
I recall very vividly the first time I saw Antalya and Izmir the feeling was overwhelming. Speechless and then again so many things go through your mind. Very emotional.
Continue with promoting this site and teaching the world of what happened to all those Greeks in Micra Asia, Pontos, Armenia etc.
I would love to hear from anyone from a Micra Asia background especially Antalya or Izmir.
As I was reading some of the comments on this forum I could not help by getting angry with a few. This web page may seem as one side by a few but regardless of politics and who is right who is wrong, the reality is people were killed,loved ones were lost and never returned. My granparents always refered to Micra Asia as "H Patrida mou" (my country). In 1922 they left everything behind and went to a place Greece which they were really not wanted or welcomed by the Mainland Greece. They were REFUGEES do not forget that. But these refugees taught so many things to these people. How to eat, how to live! I am so proud of these people who left everything behind. The Greek Cypriots are in the same boat. Politics aside you are talking about people who can never have their houses or memories back for what ever the reason behind it is. This web page is not one sited as ordinary people are viewing it also adn making comments from things they heard from their own people.

Turkish Muslims actually enjoyed massacring the Christians The burning of the Greek city of Smyrna and the massacre and scattering of its three
hundred thousand Christian inhabitants is one of the most poignant among the vast outrages of the Muslim oppression of a subject Christian population.
When the Turks attacked, the Greek Orthodox Bishop Chrysostomos remained with his flock. "It is the tradition of the Greek Church and the duty of
the priest to stay with his congregation," he replied to those begging him to flee. The Moslem mob fell upon him, uprooted his eyes and, as he
was bleeding, dragged him by his beard through the streets of the Turkish quarter, beating and kicking him. Every now and then, when he
had the strength to do so, he would raise his right hand and blessed his persecutors. A Turk got so furious at this gesture that he cut off his
hand with his sword. He fell to the ground, and was hacked to pieces by the savage mob. The carnage culminated in the burning of Smyrna, which
started on September 13 when the Turks put the Christian quarter to torch and the conflagration engulfed the city.
The Turks have committed atrocities against other minorities as well, The Tower of skulls of Chele Kula, is a monument to the Turkish savagery
against the Serbs in the early 1800s. Muslim perfidy was seen in 1571, the Island of Cyprus was threatened by the Ottomans, who cruelly
massacred the garrisons of Famagusta and Nicosia, in spite of these towns having surrendered on the stipulated terms. Lesson: Never Trust a
Muslim. The Quran calls on him to practice deception (Taqiya) against non-Muslims.

The average modern Pontian is a divided soul, forced to move from nation to nation, wondering who he really is. Muslim or Christian, a Pontian is of Greek origin
and of a proud race. By creating false divisions along religious lines, greek and turkish nationalists carved up the communities and weakened the solidarity of the
once united Pontian people. Only then was it possible for Kemal and the youngturks to launch a crime of Genocide against Christian Pontians during WW1.
Nowdays, we Pontian people in the Black sea cities and all over Turkey possess unity with our displaced Christian brothers in Greece and strengthen once more
a United Voice to save our common culture from oppression and barbarism. It is with this one belief that we put into action the uniting of all Pontian
Cultural Societies and Organizations in and outside of Pontos (Moslem and Christian) into a Government in Exile for all the Pontian people.
Thank you for providing us the documentation. So, Brothers let us unite and fear no more! With the help of European Union which Turkey will soon be part of,
Unity and Pride, Democracy, Respect and our Human Rights!

i've read the website of yours and i admire the way you want to show the facts.
i respect your efforts.i would like to know if you are Greek, Armenian, or Syriac?
am a Syriac descendent with a Syrian Nationality.24 years old.
there is one thing i found in the internet i would like to show u:
"When the Byzantine empire adopted the resolutions of the council of Chalcedon in 451,
they began to oppress those who rejected these resolutions - first and foremost the members of the Syrian church.
The church fathers and the believers had to endure various agonies like bans, killings and incarceration. Many of them,
both clergy and laity, gained martyrdom.
Justinius I carried out one of these oppression against the members of the Syrian,
Coptic and Armenian churches after his ascension to the Byzantine throne in 518 A.D.
Because of that Patriarch Severius the Great was forced to make his way to Egypt.
There he lived for 20 years and led the church through his representatives and letters."
this paragraph from the website i attached.
the point is, if it wasn't for the persecution of the Byzantine church against other churchs which used to live in the Byzantine state, Islam wouldn't have spread for more than Arabia. but since the Byzantine church did what the Turks did to us all, the Syriac and Armenian church wanted to get relieved of the persecution of the Byzantine church so they didn't really oppose the Islamic conquers. otherwise, if the Byzantine church was friendly to others they would have deffended the Byzantine church.
anyway, the past is gone, i don't have no hard feelings to nobody, i just wanted to show my point of view. and i know that Islam in general brought us many problems, but we shouldn't blame muslims for what they do, cause they follow thier doctrine, so they don't find themselves mistaken. but we should judge Christians(Byzantine and others) who committe such deeds against thier doctrine of love, so they bring themselve disasters.
i will be glad to hear your respond.

I was wondering considering all the Greek, Armenian and other Christian women and children the Turks took as their wives and kidnapped and brainwashed, how
much of the population of Turkey is of Greek or Armenian descent and how much are of mongoloid Turk descent? Because when you see a modern Turk they
often times don't look distinctly mongoloid.

I am writing you from ankara. I just happenned to see your webpage. I appreciate that you try to do something about your history but you can not give misinformation.
First of all, 19th of May is the day (of 1919) when Ataturk arrived to Samsun (a northern city in Turkey) to start the indepence movements (guess against whom? and guess what? Armenians were also on the turkish side until the greeks occupied Izmir and then most if the armenians changed their side to greek part and started to fight against Turkish people that they were living together since 14th century). So 19th of May has nothing to do about the day of Pontian genocide.
Considering Viscount Bryce, he follows as `turks wants to cleanse their country from the christian elements. If that would be true, they already could have done that much much time before when the ottoman empire was very strong and powerful.
I would like to draw your attention to this point. I believe Lord Bryce (Viscount Bryce) was very very politician because he is known here for his report indicating that it had nothing to do with the Genocide. so if I were you I wouldnt rely on Viscount Bryce a bit.
anyway, no one is in denial of what happened 80 years ago but we may call it past. dont you think its so weird that no one says anything about armenian occupation in Azerbajcan territory? (very strong lobby you have all around the world.)
thats all by now.
take care and leave this topic to historians....

I will write this in Greek so our Turkish "friends" can also understand.
It is more than obvious, it is crystal clear that the educational system in Turkey, the military and the pseudo-democratic government have managed since 1922 to produce scores and scores of people that beleive they are a great, noble, heroic, pacifist nation that has existed for thousands of years and will continue to exist in order to fulfill some glorious and devine mission that will benefit humanity.
It is truly amazing but only Turkey and Turkish people could have achieved this: A so distorted depiction and interpretation thus understanding of historic facts that -at the same time- has been passed down to generations in the most effortless way.
I really take my hat off to Kemal Ataturk. He took a mob of hapless people and through lies, propaganda, a dictatorial regime and a very galloping imagination transformed them into a nation. A nation that has no past, no ties with an ancient civilization that contributed something even small to humanity. A nation that since 1922 has selectively denied parts of the Ottoman history but promotes others. A nation that claims Homer was a Turk. A nation that says ANADOLU and translates it as the mother land but ignores the fact that the word comes -again- from the Hellenic word ANATOLIA which means Eastern. Because this territory was the Eastern part of the Hellenic people. Even Istanbul, these people named their capital (till 1922 or '23, not sure) off of a Greek expression. How pathetic. Even Smyrna was called Izmir because this is how the miserable Turks heard the Greeks say it: I Zmirni" (I type it phonetically).
It is unfortunatly a historic fact that brute force, barbarism, the "butcher philosophy" will ultimately overwhealm, overtake and conquer kindness, nobleness, reason. See what happens with even USA today. A bunch of cowboys trying to lasso the entire world. They are not content they have destroyed the indigenous populations in America now they want to expand. Turkey is acting in a similar way. They know only one way: Aggression backed by fielthy diplomacy.
It is a shame. What can you say other than: Ο Θεός να βάλει το χέρι του - God help us!!!

just count the population of turks, and the people that know their history.
there was somebody from UK, talking about secret documents, and that all is lie about genocide especially armenian. you are the one that know nothing about history and religion too!
first of all you know nothing about religion, you can have none, or somebody elses with no problem.
its like to have no name, or take your neighbors name:)
before talking about history and document, check the just the newspapers of 1915 or 1916.
like you read todays and yesterdays news, they used to read too, and what do the papers write?
just search for armenian writers and doctors biographies and check the date and year of their death. read about hitler!!!!!! and turks!
where do the original turks come from? how did they make a big country?
what do you think will the future be of europe and any other country and england too!
before talking about greeks mr englishman!!!
what about your country...? you always hate your neighbors which are Your people!!!!
you give different name to your own country :)
and last but not least....
i will not talk only about my grandma! but others... some old people, what do they remember, what do they tell,
most of them never knew why their families were killed...
it was just a surprise.... like the one in budapest, when the fucking turk killed his armenian classmate!!
what did he use? an axe? why? does it always have to be torture?
can i kill a turk today and be famous? or is it only turks killing and being nice?
you know why we will not know the history? because the turks destroy the armenian remains in that land now!
how do you want to find the history if its derstroyed by animals?
BTW why did and untill now does your muhamed hide his face? was he uglu or shy? :)
if muslims really respect their religion, why do they eat pork and drink alcohol! HARAM
the mass exterminatione of human beings---if 1000000 turk were killed, there would still be 70 000 000 left!
if 1.5 million armenians killed- 1.5 million is left! what do you call that?
i am sorry we dont have children in the streets and in poor families, 12 or 20 of them. we have kids on good families and educated.. we have 2 or 3. and grow fast too! but they are useless, arent they?

suggestions=I think that your site is done very well. I read some of the comments and I would just like to say that
1. Istanbul is a
bastardization of "stean poli" which the Turks would over hear the Greeks saying which means "in the city" or "to the city", so Istabul
derived from a Greek expression was easier to say than Konstaninopoli, for the Turks.
2. How can any people take any pride in living, and occupying a city they themselves did not found,build, or create. It's beyond me.
3. The Greeks not only colonized Asia Minor, they also colonized France, Italy, Ukraine etc.. but you don't here them making those facts an issue. Hmmmm? I wonder why?
4. It took 400 years to regain their indepeance because they had to do it themselves, w/ practically no outside help.
5. We're talking about a civilazation(w/ many ages and epocs) that has exsisted since the dawn of civilization 4000 B.C or there abouts.
6. Never in the known history of the Greeks did they conquer peoples or subjagate them, indeed, even Alexander, who fought through the Orient, only fought to stay the hostile
Orientals, (Persia). The Greeks , to this day, have always lived in harmony and peace in forgien lands(except among themselves).
7. Their civilization gave an infinite amount more of humaniity and the good things of life, dare I say, than most every other culture combined.
That being said, I would like to wish all Greeks of all time,the thanks
of the ages and to give you the well diserved support your people need
and must have.

I just saw your website and i wanted to remind you of something. The Greek independence war was made against the Ottomans not against Turks. Turks came to
power until after the Greeks and other Balkan nations separated from the empire. From the beginning, in the Ottoman Empire being a "Turk" meant being someone
who is unable to understand and someone from the low levels of society. So the Ottomans always humiliated the Turkish nation.
So in historical terms you shouldn't use "Turk" during the Greek independence war. During the 1919-1922 Greek-Turkish war you can use it because the people who fought with Greeks
were actually Turks or people who were considering themselves Turks. I hope you will consider this slight but important nuance between the periods of history.

date=18 July 2005
suggestions=Yes the Armenian Genocide did happen and yes the Turkish government will continue to deny it.
#1 For those of you who want to know why we can not let the past go away it is because it is not the past when you grandparents don't know their true age because
of the Genocide. It is not the past when your family tree was cut in half in 1915 and you do not know what your true family name is. And no it is not the past when
you grandparents tell you stories of how they saw their family raped and murdered. And why is it we can't forget because Turkish Government and most of the
Turkish people still denies the truth as you can see from all of the postings.
#2 You want us to forget the past so that it can happen again here is what Hitler said before he started Murdering and Raping innocent Jewish families. In 1939
Adolph Hitler ordered his death units to proceed in the Nazi Genocide campaign stating, "After all, who today remembers the extermination of Armenians?"
#4 This is a very nice site but I think you should talk about ALL the Genocides, Holocaust and Crimes Against humanity all over the world like Cambodia, Darfur,
Rwanda, and many more.
#5 The only way to Prevent Genocide, Holocaust and crimes against humanity is to educate people on what happened it the past to prevent it from happening in the feature.
#6 And finally the Armenian and Greek people are very forgiving people we don't want to blame the current Turks of what their grandparents did but we need the
currant Turks to tell the World what they already know the Truth.

Perhaps you should realize that while you are criticizing Turkey and turkish people of being racist...while simultaneously
at the present moment giving a horrifying example of racism...you should learn the meaning and change your website by
adding the turkish point of view...and not being biased. LET me help you on that account, Turkey built a big monument
dedicated to the foreign deaths at Gallipoli. The inscription on our memorial comes from a speech written after Gallipoli
by Kemal Ataturk, of Turkey:
"Those heroes who shed their blood and lost their lives, you are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore,
rest in peace. You, the mothers who sent their sons from far away countries, wipe away your tears, your sons are now lying
in our bosoms and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they become our sons as well."

I have read this script about the fall of Constantinople(Istanbul since 29th May of 1453) And maybe because I am a Turk i
found it ridiculous and exaggerated.....First of all We are not the only nation which raped killed and looted...
Did'nt you rape kill loot andtorture before?That sounds funny you magnified the heroism of your nation you write and narrate
your nation as a peaceful,heroic and civilised one.And you narrate us like Barbarians...Who were the true barbarians
when you(Byzantium) blinded 10.000Bulgarian soldiers Turks or Greeks?
Or during the WWI when you peaceful monks invaded the Western side of Turkiye(Istanbul,Bursa,Izmύr...), who were the
barbarians Turks or Greeks?During this time who were the rapist arsonist and the murderer?Let me answer I think you peaceful
monks were the true barbarians that behaved in the most barbaric and cruel way.And you are the peaceful ones those who
support terroristic organisation of PKK who killed from babies in the cradle to old people.....So where is your peace and
intelligence now,is it lost in the ruins of Constantinople?Why you always deny the truth and cover it with lies I really am
not sure about the historians who narrated the the past but i think most of them were just stupid liers.
And you peacful monks always repeat "the best Turk is the dead one"that sounds intelligent(!!!!!) that I really wanna
see you attacking on my country because after this,the Greek nationalists who prefer to hide themselves than dying
in a proud way in a proud defense or assault,will go on to tell stories,lies to provoke their children to upheavel.....and
the one who fights brave will live in the gained land proudly. By the way don't think that i hate Greeks i don't hate

The Denial of Genocide is a form of aggression. It continues the process of genocide. It strives to reshape
history in order to rehabilitate the perpetrators and demonize the victims. It prevents healing of the wounds
inflicted by genocide. Denying genocide is the final stage of genocide-it murders the dignity of the survivors and
destroys the remembrance of the crime. In US we don't all think and act like our corrupted politicians and their media.

that Turkish states of this historical period were able to survive and to give life and be an unbrella of many nationalities
and religions that were not able to live together. This was able thanks to the power of Turkish justice,arm and soul to
rule people.Just say Thanks for your being becouse it is just becouse we allowed.
We had enough time to do assimilation but we did not do this for many years while we could do eveything. We have the right
as everyone to save all our being and we will use this right. So former Constantionpolis now is Istanbul for 552 years is it
true? Of course you can not stop the evolution. Survive only the strongest! For last 1000 years we survive and we are going
to survive, so we are also the future host of this Land that we call ANADOLU-Matherland...Sorry, only try to be our friend
becouse being our enemy would not give you future....

Who thinks that there were genocides from Turks to others !! I can also provide you evidences that there were genocides
against Turks by Armenians, etc. Leave that subject out. There were wars, and they have been done ! Finished, and the
world map is there ! If you have problems to claim the borders back, go and find a place to complain about the Turks,
or borders... Turks, Greeks, Armenians, Kurds, and all lived in peace since ages here in these lands. And if you
live them alone they will continoue to live !
And Istanbul name is Istanbul, not Konstantinopoli or Konstantinoupolis.

I am a Greek living in Denmark
I am personally very impressed by your website. I personally understand your feelings.
I have been in Turkey, have seen my ancestor's graves in: Sisli Run Ortodoks Mezarligi
and in: Balikli Rum Ortodoks Mezarligi in Konstantinopoli. Seen the vandalism specialy in the Balikli cemetery.
I have seen Agia Sofia and believe me, I cried.
I traveled in too Turkey, in Kappadokia, to see the places of my ancestors back in history, and I cried.
I do not have any personal experience with those horrors that took place there.
But I have a feeling of a very big loss.
The feeling of bitterness and the feeling of reposition of the lost territories and glories are in my mind, too. But I know, and am sure you know as well, that those feeling are destructive and counterproductive.
It is my experience that the majority of common people in the West do not know even the name of Byzantium much less they know of the Greek tragedy.
I believe that some how is a collective amnesia and refusal of guild. They do NOT understand those feelings.
As for the Turks, they know even less dew to propaganda and the twisting of history.
I am a humanist. I am old enough to know that "ism" is and have been the root of all evil in the world.
I am not naοve neither pacifist, action I will take if it is necessary.
I have a dream that same day in the future a liturgy will take place in Agia Sofia.
How is that possible you may ask?
I believe that it is possible through education, prosperity, understanding, forgiveness and wisdom from and for all people in the region. It may take time but it is possible.
I have not up to date seen any website with so much concentration of the events and horrors that took place back in time, it is very educational and I appeal to you to continue.
But somehow I wish you could make the presentation less threatening for the Turks, more appealing to Westerners and to add a peaceful vision for the future. It is my experience that way we will gain more understanding, sympathy, support and positive brain activity from the readers and especially from the readers that really mater The Greeks and The Turks.
If you, I, and other Greeks take that path nobody will accuse us of living in the dreams of the past glories but acknowledge that we work, without denying the facts of history, towards a goal for the peaceful coexistence of the different cultures in the region.
That way we have all much do gain and nothing to loose.

YOU MUST REALISE THAT NATIONALISM IS VERY DANGEROUS. IT HARMS US ALL. IT IS INEVITABLE THAT
TURKEY SOMEDAY,SOONER OR LATER, WILL BE A MEMBER OF EU AND OUR RELATIONS WILL GET BETTER.
BUT PROBABLY YOU ARE THE LAST GENERATION OF GREEKS WHO IS ITCHING WOUNDS WHICH MIGHT CAUSE IT
TO BLEED. WEBMASTER IS ONE OF THE LAST MEMBERS OF GLOBAL RACISM. HE IS HARMFULL FOR GLOBAL PEACE.
HE CANNOT BE A GREEK FROM GREECE. I WONDER WHO IS SPONSORING HIM. PANHELLENISM IS A BULLSHIT.
WHY DOESN T HE SPEAK ABOUT THE HISTORY OF ''SEA-PEOPLES''. IF YOU GO TOO DEEP IN THE HISTORY,YOU
LL REALIZE THAT TURKEY HAD NOT BEEN THEIR LAND. IF WEBMASTER THINKS THAT ISTANBUL WAS A HELLENIC
CITY, HE IS KANE. HE SHOULD REMEMBER THE PROVOKATIONS OF MACCARIOS IN CYPRUS AGAINST TURKISH
CYPRIOTS. ANYWAY,HE SHOULD ALSO REMEMBER THAT THEIR BLOODY KILLING OF DEFENCELESS TURKS IN
CYPRUS BROUGHT THEIR MILITARIST REGIME TO AN END THANKS TO REPUBLIC OF TURKEY, THE FIRST IN
EUROPE TO GIVE THE WOMEN THE RIGHT TO VOTE, BRIDGE BETWEEN EAST AND WEST, CENTER OF ALL WESTERN
CIVILASITION AND CULTURE.
SOME COMMENTATORS CLAIM THAT CITIES LIKE TROY, ISTANBUL etc ARE HELLENISTIC CITIES. THEY SHOULD
READ SOME INDEPENDENT SOURCESS. TROY CANNOT BE A HELLENISTIC CITY AS IT HAD BEEN DEMOLISHED BY
ACHAEANS. WHAT IS HELLENIC,ACHAEAN, MACHEDONIAN,ALEXANDER THE GREAT. I RECOMMEND ALL TO STUDY
THESE SUBJECTS TO REALISE ALL THE BULLSHIT OF THE WEBMASTER. HE IS JUST TRYING TO FOOL SOME
CLAIMING THAT GREEKS ARE ALL ST GEORGE.
AS A CONLUSION, TURKEY IS ONE OF THE INEVITABLE PEACEMAKERS IN THE WORLD AND WE SHOULD NOT ITCH

I very much am interested in history of people and the family and I should
do so. In Russian there is not enough information.
I am from Trabezond, but there is a lot of
information which I would want to know.
1. Where is the Platana? It is port to the west Trabezond,
Therefrom mine the grandmother and the grandfather have left to Russia.
2. Whether there is there a Greek community where I could address with
questions and where archives were probably kept?

έf the genocide that you're talking about was true, greeks wouldn't have
been alive. Nazis killed 6 billions jewish in 6 years and greeks lived 400
years under ottoman controle. Don't you think that 400 years are enough to
destroy all the greeks? έf that was true the greek race would be only in the
history books. You still speak your own language, you have your own culture
don't forget that under french presure Alberia changed its language and now
speaks french and all this things happened in a short time. You should be
thankful that you're still christians, you're still alive. Another point
that you missed is that Turkey didn't participate to the second world war so
how can you say that Turkey was Nazis ally? i think that you don't have
enough information about history.. έf you mean the first world war, Adolf
hitler wasn't in the scene so nazis weren't on the scene. They commited all
crime in the second world war. έ think you say all the things that you may
use against Turkey it isn't important if it's true or not.
Someone who has a
very little knowlege in history will understand you lies which are really
funny. Do you think that your speech is still reasonable after all the
things that i said? i'm ready with proofs, every logical history book will
be a proof. And the greeks are talking about capturing έstanbul again it's
funny too... έn the first world war you tried to take west anatolia(έzmir).
Even all the turkish lands were under invasion of italian, french, english
armies sorry but you couldn't make it your grandfathers are sleeping in
peace under aegean sea. How do you imagine that you can make it now, it's
much more difficult first of all it isn't fair; 15 billions vs 70 billions.
Only thing that i may say that you shouldn't live with dreams there's
nothing that you can do, you shouldn't tell lies just to show Turkey like
guilty, history cannot be changed by someone who wants to use it to try to
persuade people.έf you have the courage έ'm waiting for everything logical
that you can prove

The Rape of Constantinople
Decending from the "Dynasty of the Komneni" and reading much of the last stand made by the
Pontians in Trapezon, I read "The Last Hellene Emperor Constantine Palaeologus" on you site,
My greatest consolation is in the written word, the power to project the full truth of the
sacrifice made by Byzantium in its pursuit of ancient ideals, the rights of common men.
What caused the delay in recognition of the fact? Are we, any less than they were?
Read the speech at Opis in 324 BC known as ALEXANDER'S OATH given one year before his death
to some 9,000 Greek and Asian Officers translated by His Excellency Nicholas Martis former
Minister of Macedonia and Thrace.
Quoting Alexander the Great
Now that the wars are over, I wish you to find happiness through peace.
May all mortals live from now on in harmony, as one nation, for the sake of common prosperity.
Consider the world as your country, with common laws, governed by men of merit regardless of race.
I do not distinguish between Greeks and barbarians, as do the narrow minded.
I am not interested in the country or race of origin of people.
I only distinguish people according to their virtues.
To me every virtuous foreigner is Greek and each non-virtuous Greek is worse than a barbarian.
If you are ever faced with differences, do not resort to arms, but resolve them peacefully, if need be,
I can act as your arbitrator.
God should not be viewed as an authoritarian ruler, but as our common father.
As for myself, I consider all persons, black or white as equals.
I wish you to be my partners and not just members of our commonwealth.
As far as I am able, I shall see to it that all my promises come true.
Regard this oath as a symbol of love.

i loved ur site its really grate. Ive read over and over many times the fall of constantinople,
and i have knowledge on this subject and i just want to bring out my out most respect, for being
a true greek. Many greeks theses days dont know our history, and with turkey changing the name
of Constantinople to Instabul, try to make us forget our claim to our land. Keep up the good
work man, its will be ours again, real soon.
it just makes me real sad, that strangers, that have no clue on our greek history bash us and
take the turkish sides. To think at least greeks brought democracy, phylosophie, mathematics
and astronomy, what did turks bring, pani suffering, raps and baklava, wowwww. Its obvious that
turks have only in there interest to bash us right back, but listen i read all the entries and
from all the turks, i saw none of them with any serious comments on how Constantinopolis is
theres. Some guy said like they have byzantine blood, and kurdish, hittites, ok, fine, hittites
were in mid anatolia, neer the ankara borders, secondly let us not forget Byzantium is a
ancient greek city, Troy was a ancient greek city, i dont see Turkish history at all in here.
Then some other person goes like o im sad that greeks killed 40 000 turks in Smyrna, ok, well
buddy get ur facts straith , 1 million greeks , 1 million 500 000 armenians, and eighty thousand
niceyrian! s were killed in smyrna, in that one day, compared to a misly 40 000 turks, plz,
some other idiot goes like dont make us wake up because we will crush u, bla bla bla, thats all
talk, everybody knows turks aint got nothing on us, we got all True Orthodox Nations backin us
up, Russia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Armenians, all the countries hurt from the massacares cause by
turkey, they have our backs, just like we have theres in return. Then there some people thats
are like we live in the past u lost it, get over it, Listen here , if u would loose it, if u had
history for thousands of years on it, u woould just leave it go like that, not a word, tuck ur
tail in beetween ur legs, u wouldint, thus the world gets angry when we stand up for each other,
theres haters and lovers, many many many people and nations hate us , and our jelous, for being
what they are not, a Nation with culture, glamour and history, when we speak, its out of fact,
and we back up our arguments,
How can the world be so blind to what has happend, the americans seem to be like dumb she ep
folowing there sheperd in any direction and the smart americans, are hushed, like Michael Moore,
my point being that turkey gets aid from the united states only for personal benefit and
interest, the states dont care for right or wrong, just worship Money, they would kill for a
dollar, steal the poors only ressources just for them, Turkey sides with these kind of people,
show me ur friend and ill tell u who u r, It has been prophisized that Constantinopolis will be
ours again, and once it will, we will have done it more then just for us, for all the
"Ponemenes Patrides ", for all the Hurts Nations that were hit by turkeys pleg, it will be a
victory, for all the world, for hellenisim, for all orthodox nations, and for all nations who
set goals, are perseverant, get hit and still keep going, When we get Constatinopolis, it will
be a voice for the little guy, that speaks out to the goliath.

From an admirer of Greece and Hellenic culture from Paraguay
Wed, 1 Sep 2004 16:14:17 -0300
Hello Webmaster of the site "Photos of Constantinople, History of Byzantium",
My name is Paulino and I'm from Asuncion in Paraguay (South America). Although being from this
far, I've always been a great admirer of the Hellenic culture since when I was a child my mama
used to tell stories from the Iliad and the Odyssey or Alexander the Great.
From 1992 to 1994 I studied in Manchester and I met a lot of Turkish guys and I always used to
tell them like joke but also from my heart that someday Istanbul would be Greek again and
called again Constantinople. You bet they didn't like those jokes.
Only a few days ago I was deeply impressed by the inauguration and later the closing ceremony
of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games. I congratulate all Greeks for that magnificent event.
Right now I'm reading a book by Colleen McCullough and in one chapter she mentioned the Greek
colonies of Pontos Euxinus like Sinope or Olbia, and the story of Mithridates from the Parthians.
Therefore I began wishing to know what happen to those colonies. Of course I supposed they were
obliterated by the Muslims. Then I looked for the word Sinope in Google and thus I
came across your web page. As I read it I became a bit sad because I knew the truth about
the genocide of the Greek people of the Pontos by the Turks
(not very surprisingly since they were supervised by the Germans!).
Therefore I want to congratulate you for your excellent web site and may God bring prosperity
to Greece and to Paraguay.
Thank you and goodbye,
Ing. Paulino Aguayo Rojas

suggestions=1915, Armenian genocide
Just so you know the term genocide means the mass exterminatione of human beings... Due to the fact that Turkey did not
exterminate them this is a false accusation and it is time that people stop refering to this tradegy as a genocide. Whether this is
in an attempt to brew hate on the Turkish I think it is quite irrelevant. Sure they were executed but by no means where the
whole Armenian race destroyed. Also dont focus on Turkey alone... There are many other countries which have commited
much worse crimes. Your focus on Turkey is wrong. I am sorry if you have ancestors which have suffered through this but get
your sources accurate before bursting in to fully biased opinions.

I have seen the site and think it is quite good. Constantinople was taken by
brute force and its citizens, those who survived, had to live under a not very friendly
turkish rule. Modern Turks can not expect christians to believe and feel that everything
is fine and cozy in Turkey. History says otherwise. It is natural for a brutally displaced
society to claim its rights. Things may never be the way they were in byzantine times but
certainly they can not remain the way they are today.
Turkey HAS to deal with the greek rights to Constantinople as a christian seat. The Armenian
and Kurdish people have been all but exterminated. Accepting these facts may bring Turkey
and Christians together in the future.
One last thought: It is amazing to know that a large percent of the population of Turkey is
composed of Greek people who now profes the Muslim faith. Understand that there is
Greek, Armenian and Kurdish blood running in Turkish veins.

Comments: i would like to start with my first impression. this site is wholly racist. and the
designers of this website are fully racist people. as a turkish i can strongly suggest you to
come to turkey and see the hospitality of our people. besides justify your accusations. visit the
website of www.tsk.mil.tr to see the reality of armenian problem. see what they have done to our
people. and i don't agree with the comments on your website. it is blanksheet there is nothing to
see except the pure and foolish fantasies of ill-racist greeks.
