The Hellenic Genocide
Quotes from historical documents and related Photos.
The Hellenic Genocide was the systematic torture, massacre and ethnic cleansing of several millions Hellenes (Greeks) perpetrated by the Turks in Asia Minor, Constantinople (called Istanbul by the Turks), Eastern Thrace, Imvros, Tenedos, Macedonia, Cappadocia and Pontos between the beginning of the 1890's and the end of the 1950's.
Millions of children, men and women were tortured and massacred or expelled from their homes only for being Hellenes. In the same places and often at the same time, were also massacred millions of Armenians and Assyrians.
The only "sin" of those millions of persons was to live where their ancestors had lived for thousands of years before the Turkish invasions. The Turkish rulers carried out with unimaginable cruelty their plan to create a "Turkey for the Turks."

|Demonstration in Berlin: "Armenians, Assyrians, Greeks, Kurds many Victims, one Perpetrator Turkey".
The Kurds supported the Turks to perpetrate the Genocides of the Armenians, Assyrians and Hellenes, with the promise of independence. Even so, those nations try to end the present persecution of the Kurds, which began as soon as most Armenians, Assyrians and Hellenes had been killed.
Ambassador Morgenthau's Story
"And now the Young Turks, who had adopted so many of Abdul Hamid's ideas, also made his Armenian policy their own. Their passion for Turkifying the nation seemed to demand logically the extermination of all Christians---Greeks, Syrians, and Armenians. Much as they admired the Mohammedan conquerors of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, they stupidly believed that these great warriors had made one fatal mistake, for they had had it in their power completely to obliterate the Christian populations and had neglected to do so."
