The Great Catastrophe Documentary
As we commemorate the centennial of the Armenian genocide in 2015, it is important to also remember the crimes against the Greeks. The three large Christian communities of the Ottoman empire— Greeks, Armenians, and Assyrians—were all victims of genocide, subjected to systematic extermination policies that involved terror, deportations, death marches, and massacres.
These were the first genocides of the 20th century. Turkey, to this day, denies that that the genocides against the Armenians, the Greeks, and the Assyrians ever happened. Because the perpetrators were never brought to justice and the facts were forgotten, a second large-scale genocide was carried out in the 20th century— the Holocaust. The genocide against the Christians of the Ottoman Empire was well known to the Nazi regime, who carried out a very similar campaign of terror.
The Asia Minor and Pontos Hellenic Research Center and The Pan-Pontian Federation of U.S.A-Canada is seeking your support for the production of a documentary to bring to light the historical events of the forgotten Greek genocide. We owe it to the memory of those who perished. We owe it to future generations, so that such events will not happen again. We owe it to the Christian communities of the Middle East that are subject to genocide today.
Help us reveal the facts. Help us honor the lives lost and their memory.
