    Now THAT is offensive. The Yong Turks were extremists of the worst kind, Ataturk was a left over from that period.

    "I have placed my death-head formations in readiness - for the present only in the East - with orders to them to send to death mercilessly and without compassion , men, women, and children of Polish derivation and language. Only thus shall we gain the living space (lebensraum) which we need. Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?" - Adolf Hitler to Wehrmacht commanders on August 22, 1939, twelve days before the German invasion of Poland

    A recent research by American historians claims that there was no Armenian genocide: there were brutalities against Armenians, but not at a large scale (certainly no 2 million deaths as some reports claim) and there was no previous planning.

    The Turks were brutal to their minorities ca. WW1, and several years thereafter.

    Several million Greek inhabitants of the east coast of the Aegean died or were evicted from lands their ancestors had inhabited since well before the time of Homer.

    I am afraid there is now no practical recourse for their descendants. Any attempt to retrive lost terrotory would result in full-scale, prologed warfare,
    which would not be worth it to any party.
