Patoulis: No one Forgets, Nothing Is Forgotten

ATHENS – "No one forgets, nothing is forgotten. It is the least we owe to all the innocent victims to keep alive their historical and cultural heritage," Αttica Region governor Giorgos Patoulis said on Tuesday to mark the day of remembrance of the Pontian Genocide, when he arranged for a relevant banner to be hung outside the regional authority's building.

"This is one of the greatest crimes against humanity as 353,000 Greeks were murdered by Kemal Ataturk and the Neo-Turks," Patoulis added. "Turkish nationalism under the Ottoman Empire led to physical extermination, displacement and deportation and uprooting of hundreds of thousands of Pontic Greeks from their ancestral homes. These soils were watered with the blood of innocent Greeks."

Referring to the banner, he noted that "this act is the minimum sign of honour for our Pontians. We pay our respects to the memory of the thousands of victims and make a promise to contribute in every way to the preservation of our historical awareness."
