Norbury, Natzio and Co, Manchester 1919.
A 7 page letter dated December 1918 by Metropolitan of Amassia Germanos Karavangelis to M. Constantinides the President
of the Pont-Euxin Unredeemed Greeks Committee based in Marseilles, France.
Towards the end of the year (1917), when the savage instincts of the tyrant and his instruments as well as the wild fanaticism of the Turkish were satisfied, I was at last able to go out towards the mountains to discover and assemble fragments of evidence as to the catastrophe. I found only ruins and desolation; skeletons lay scattered on the mountains. I found but a very small number of women and children who, hidden in the caverns and the forests, had been able to escape the fury of the excited rabble. - Metr. Germanos Karavangelis. p4/5.
