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.

Traditional festive costumes of the 'Rum' (Greek-Orthodox) inhabitants from the Pontos region (Black Sea coast and hinterland).  Late-Ottoman era, urban style, early 20th century.  They were expelled from Turkey in 1923, in exchange for Muslim populations from Greece.  At this occasion Turkey lost a lot of cultural and economic potential, and the expelled lost their homeland.
