Greek freedom fighters, May 19 is the day of remembrance of the Pontian Greek Genocide (1916-1923). Records kept mainly by priests show a minimum 350,000 Pontian Greeks exterminated by Turkish troops and Kurdish para-militaries. Other sources including foreign missionaries mention 500,000 deaths, most through deportation and forced marches into the Anatolian desert. Greek cities (Pafra, Samsous, Kerasous, and Trapezous) endured massacres and deportations that destroyed their populations.

Victory Day (9 May) " Victory Day, as he was far from us, As in the fire melted extinct coal. There were miles, charred in the dust - This day we were approaching as they could. Chorus: This Victory Day Smell of gunpowder, This holiday With graying at the temples. It is a joy With tears in his eyes. Days and nights in open-hearth furnaces Our homeland is not closed eyes. Days and nights of hard fought battle -This day we were approaching as they could.
