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.

Pontos means Sea. Pontioi used to live between Russia and Turkey. They were Greeks sent there in Byzantine era to protect the borders. They were strong passionate people. After the last war between Turkey and Greece, there was a population exchange, so many of them had to leave their land to come to Greece. Many of them were killed, that is why they always wear black. Their costume is complete with a pair of sharp knives..

Pontos

Pontus or Pontos is a historical Greek designation for a region on the southern coast of the Black Sea, located in modern-day northeastern Turkey. The name was applied to the coastal region in antiquity by the Greeks who colonized the area, and derived from the Greek name of the Black Sea: Pontos Euxeinos ("Hospitable Sea"), or simply Pontos.
