THE BLACK BOOK OF NICAEA
UNENDING CATALOGUE OF MOURNING - BLOOD CALLS FOR REVENGE
FROM EMBROS'S POSTED CORRESPONDENT

KIOS [GEMLIK], April. I managed to compile, from the only living survivor of the Greek town of Nicaea [İznik], a list of Greeks who were massacred by the Turks last August. Since neither the Metropolis of Nicaea, nor any other official body bothered to compile the names of the victims of such a shocking crime, I think it's relevant even today, some months later, to publish the names of these martyred victims.  The facts of the massacre which occurred within a few hours, without exception of any citizens of the town, is the only thing that can be presented in the chronicle of such an atrocity.
