Files

Excerpt

The genocide in Pontos and in other parts of Anatolia, as well as Thrace, is not merely a part of history but a window into a contemporary human rights crisis. The destruction continues in a somewhat less violent form in our time as the culture, language, and religious rites of the Ottoman Greeks are lost due to massacres, forcible exile, and expropriations of sacred sites. This chapter introduces relevant human rights norms and argues that measures implemented by the international community after other genocides could be a model for restitution and guarantees of non-recurrence in Pontos and other parts of Turkey.
