Asia Minor, also referred to as Anatolia, is a region in which the Greeks have lived and advanced their culture, religion, politics, art and ideas since the second millennium BCE. However, today, this area is often overlooked as an important place of Hellenic heritage and history.

This presentation will be a brief retrospective on the important stages of Hellenism in Asia Minor, with main emphasis on the uprooting of the Anatolian Greeks from that area after the catastrophe of 1922 and its disastrous aftermath.

1. Your Cretan
2. Watermelon tastes good
3. Softball is fun
4. Arni is tasty

Time: 10:00 AM

Join us for an inspirational event on November 13th 2011, where the Detroit Cretans commemerate those who sacrificed their lives for their ancestors.  The event will start off at St John's Greek Orthodox Church, during normal church services.  Following the church service, we will also sponsor coffee hour after service.  Members are requested to also attend church service at St John's of Sterling Heights, MI on this day.

FYI:This event caused strong reactions among the liberal circles of western Europe, the "Holocaust of Arkadi". The event occurred in November 1866, as a large Ottoman force besieged the Arkadi Monastery, which served as the headquarters of the rebellion. In addition to its 259 defenders, over 700 women and children had taken refuge in the monastery. After a few days of hard fighting, the Ottomans broke into the monastery. At that point, the abbot of the monastery set fire to the gunpowder stored in the monastery's vaults, causing the death of most of the rebels and the women and children sheltered there. As reported by the American writer and consul William Stillman and others over the recently introduced telegraph, this event caused enormous shock in the rest of Europe and in North America and decreased the perceived legitimacy of Turkish rule.
