    The greek violence against albaian

    The massacre of Chameria Though today divided between Greece and Albania, the Epirus region of the Balkan peninsula has been ethnically Albanian since the ancient times. During the Conference of Ambassadors in London in 1913, the southern part of the region was cut off from the motherland and annexed to the Greek state despite the fact that people of the southern Epirus were Albanians of Orthodox and the Muslim faith. While the orthodox Albanians were targets of hellenization, the muslim Albanians were either exterminated or expelled from their ancestral lands by the Greek government.

    Chams who lived in Southern Epirus (Chameria or Thesprotia as it is called by the Greeks) were the victims of the first ethnic cleansing in Europe at the end of the Second World War. The Cham tragedy is one of the most painful tragedies of the European continent. Statistical yearbook of the Greek government in 1936 showed that 26.000 Chams lived in Chameria region in Greece at that time.

    As a result of the 1944-1945 ethnic cleansing and genocide, 30.000 Albanian Muslims were violently expelled from the Chameria region, and sought refuge in the Republic of Albania, where they still live. Today, there are 150.000 members of this population in Albania, a figure that has grown because of the high birth rate of the population. On the other hand, current number of Cham Albanians living in Greece is estimated at around 100.000. Yet these people are deprived of every sort of minority rights like other minorities living in Greece. To cite but one example, they can speak Albanian only in their homes.

    The population of Chameria has always been ethnically Albanian:
    - A lot of voyagers and foreign historians wrote that Chameria had been populated by Albanians. Even the Greek historian Herodotus underscored this fact in his book "Historia" and called Albanians of the Chameria "barbarians", a term used by the ancient Greeks to distinguish non-greek people.
    - The census held by the Turkish Administration in 1910 established that there were 83.000 orthodox and muslim Albanians in the region. The demographic map of the British military mission sent to the British government in London indicates that on the eve of the second World War, %75 of Chameria's population was Albanian.
    - The pro-Greek historian Spiro Muselimi, in his book "Historical Sight Through Thesprotia", edited in Joannina on 1974, wrote that "The bishop of Thesprotia in the year 1870 translated some parts of Bible into Albanian, as the people of orthodox faith of the region did not understand any word in Greek".

    The Greek authorities, sticking to the concept of absolute denial of the existence of ethnic groups on Greek territory, have followed a well-established chauvinistic policy and, as history recorded, they committed genocide against the Albanians of muslim faith.
    The racial assault on Chameria's muslim Albanians began to be first applied at the end of the Second World War, in 1944-1945, when criminal bands of the notorious General Napoleon Zervas perpetrated ethnic cleansing against them.

    On June 27, 1944, Greek criminal bands resorted to the worst atrocities witnessed in this region. The terror committed against this population was beyond description. It included killings, rapes, inhuman treatment, massacre of women, babies and pregnant women. More than 1400 men, women and children were killed within 24 hours in the town of Paramithy, on Tuesday, June 27, 1944, which happened to be the date of St.Bartholomeus day for the whole Chameria.

    During the June 1944-March 1945 period, 1286 persons were killed in Filat, 192 people were killed in Gumenica, 626 persons were killed in Margellic and Parga. There were hundreds of other missing persons. In the same period, as a result of Greek massacres, acts of robbery and rapes against the Albanian population of Chameria; 2900 young and old men, 214 women, 96 children were massacred, 745 women were raped, 76 women abducted, 32 children, younger than 3 years were massacred, 68 villages were razed to the ground, 5800 houses and places of worship were burned down or destroyed. Furthermore, 30.000 Albanian Muslims were violently expelled from the Chameria region who took refuge in the Republic of Albania.

    The Albanian government, after the war, took the Cham issue to the Peace Conference in Paris. The conference of Foreign Ministers of the Allied Powers not only recognized the very difficult circumstances the Chams were subjected to, but also demanded repatriation and recovery of their property. The International Investigation Commission of the United Nations, appointed for the verification of the tragedy on both sides of the border, concluded its report in 1946-1947, replete with facts and evidence about the massacre and painful tragedy of the Cham people.

    Realities of the recent history of Chameria require the attention of the international community. Greece cannot avoid but recognize the genocide of the "Cham Albanians." The civil and legal rights of those currently living in Greece, estimated around 100.000 today, must be respected by Greece. According to the official Greek stand, the muslim population of Chameria, which numbers around 150.000 and still refugees in Albania will never be allowed to return to Greece because they allegedly collaborated with the German occupiers during the Second World War. "They are considered as war criminals according to the Greek laws" (K.Mitsotakis, Tirana, May 1992).


    This "hypothesis" is untrue and fabricated. To consider a whole community as "criminals", many members of which died in Greece's liberation struggle in the Second World War, is a political and historical crime against Cham Albanians.
    In 1994, the Parliament of the Albanian Republic proclaimed 27 June 1944 as the commemoration day for the massacred Albanians of Chameria, and a monument was built up in Konispol in memory of the victims of Chameria.


    After 1945, with a view to changing the demographic structure of Chameria, its colonization with Greeks, Aromens and Gypsies was begun. Greece wanted the demographic structure of the province changed because it did not trust the rest of the Albanian population who remained there, even though they were of the Orthodox confession. Greece violently put an end to every attempt to preserve the identity of the Albanian population of the Orthodox belief and Albanian was prohibited to be spoken in public. Thereby, the assimilation of orthodox Albanians gained momentum. The fate of the orthodox Albanians was not much different than that of their Muslim brothers when it came to maintaining their ethnic identity.

    DOCUMENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF CHAM ALBANIANS



    IN EXILE, ON GREEK PERSECUTION OF THE CHAMS, SUBMITTED TO THE HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION OF THE UNITED NATIONS IN 1945
    We, the Anti-Fascist Committee of Cham immigrants in Albania, having faith in the democratic and humanitarian principles of the UN, and acting in the name of Cham immigrants in Albania, do hereby address the Investigating Commission concerning our lost rights, oppression, persecutions and massacres committed by Greek Fascists in order to exterminate the Albanian minority in Greece.
    In pursuit of the protests and appeals that we have addressed to the Great Allies and the United Nations, we ask for justice with regard to the following:
    For 32 years in succession, Greek chauvinist and reactionary cliques, in brutal violation of every humanitarian principle, and in total disregard of international treaties, have carried out a policy of extermination toward the Albanian minority in Greece.
    Beginning with the Greek occupation of Chamėria on February 23, 1913, the gang of Deli Janaqi, incited and assisted by the local authorities, massacred without cause whatsoever 72 men, in the brook of Selani, district of Paramithia.
    This massacre marked the beginning of the drive to exterminate the Albanian minority, and made clear the orientation of Greek policy toward our population.
    The hounding, persecutions, imprisonment, internment, tortures, and plunder carried out on the pretext of disarming [the population] in the years 1914-1921, the terrorist actions of outlaws, and the provocations of Gjen Baire in 1921, reveal the reality of the sufferings to which our population was subjected during the Greek occupation.
    Koska, Lopsi, Varfanj, Karbunari, Kardhiqi, Paramithija, Margėllėēi, Arpica, Grykohori, and others, are some of the villages that paid an especially high price as a consequence of the terror.
    In 1922-1923, the Greek authorities decided to displace the Moslem element of Chamėria, in exchange for the Greeks in Asia Minor, on the pretext that we were Turks. This shameless act of the Athenian authorities ran into opposition on our part and the intervention of the League of Nations which, upon ascertaining the Albanian nationality of our people, rejected the decision of the Greek Government.
    But despite the intervention of the League of Nations, and the solemn commitments undertaken by the Greek Government in Lausanne on January 16, 1923, the authorities in Athens continued their policy of extermination. They resorted to every device to make it difficult for the Albanian element to remain in Chamėria, and confiscated 6,000 hectares of land owned by hundreds of families in Dushk, Gumenicė, Kardhiq, Karbunarė, and others, without compensating them in the least.
    The government in Athens settled the immigrants from Asia Minor in Chamėria, with the intention of peopling it with Greeks and creating conditions that would lead to the emigration of the autochthonous Albanian population.
    Entire families were forced to abandon their birthplace and migrate to Turkey, Albania, America and elsewhere, and villages like Petrovica and Shendellia were deserted completely by their Albanian inhabitants.
    Under these circumstances, we did not enjoy any national rights, not even the use of our mother tongue. Fanaticism and ignorance were given support, instead of developing our national culture and stimulating progress. Instead of opening schools, they subsidized religious clubs in the Arab language. Ninety-five percent of our population remained illiterate. The province of Chamėria, a fertile and prosperous land, remained backward, without economic development, without communication facilities, and in the hands of money-lenders and monopolists, such as: Koēoni, Pitulejtė, Kufalla, Zhulla, Ringa and others, who impoverished and enslaved the entire region.
    In the war against Fascism, and more precisely at its conclusion, the reactionary Monarcho-Fascist forces of Llakė of Suli, which were created by the reaction to serve the occupier under the command of General Napoleon Zerva, turned on and treacherously massacred the Moslem Albanian inhabitants of Chamėria.
    At that time, when the troops of ELAS [National Popular Liberation Army] and our troops were committed to fighting the Germans, the leadership of EOEA [National Troops of Greek Guerrilas], in league with the Germans, maneuvered to gain positions to fight a civil war. And when our forces, in keeping with the spirit and decisions of the protocol of Kasartė (Sarafis-Zerva), August, 1944, implemented the orders of the Joint Command in pursuit of the Germans, General Napoleon Zerva, commander of the resistance forces in Epir (ELAS – EOEA), gave orders to massacre the innocent population of Chamėria.
    The massacres in Chamėria were a flagrant violation of humanitarian principles, and a shameless disregard for the principles and the nature of the Anti-Fascist struggle. The massacres in Chamėria were a result of the collaboration and agreements with the Germans, who in the process of retreating, let Zerva’s forces take their place. Here is a concrete example of the collaboration between Zerva’s forces and the Germans. Theodhor Vito, the commander of the Zerva forces in the district of Filat, met the commander of the retreating German forces on September 22, 1944 in the village of Panaromen, 3 km. from Filat, just one day before the entrance of Zerva’s forces in Filat. Right after that meeting, and even before the German forces cleared out of Filat entirely, the forces of Theodhor Vito entered Filat. That close collaboration strengthened the position of the Zerva forces, and enabled them to initiate the terror and the massacres on a broad scale in all the districts of Chamėria.
    The forces of the X th Division of EOEA, under the command of Col. Vasil Kamaras, and specifically the XVI th Regiment of that division, which was led by Kranja and his aides Lefter Strugari, attorney Stavropullos Ballumi Zotos, the notorious criminals Patazejt and others, entered the town of Paramithia on June 27, 1944. Contrary to their promises and the agreement arrived at between mufti Hasan Abdullaj, on the one hand, and Shapera and the Bishop of Paramithia, on the other, who acted as agents of Zerva, the most ignoble massacres were set in motion. Defenseless men, women and children became targets for the Greek Monarcho-Fascists. The number of the massacred in the town of Paramithia and vicinity reached 600 souls.
    On July 28, 1944 the forces of Regiment Nr. 40, commanded by Agores, entered Parg and massacred 52 men, women and children.
    The forces of EOEA under the command of Theodhor Vito, Ilija Kaqo, Hristo Mavrudhi, Hristo Kaqo, Hari Dhiamanti and others, first encircled the town of Filat, then on Saturday morning of September 23, 1944 entered the town. The same day they also entered Spatėr. They plundered and seized all of the families, and whatever else they found. On the eve of [September] 23 and the dawn of September 24, 1944 there entered also the forces commanded by Kranja, Strugari and others. As soon as these forces arrived, the massacres began. Forty-seven men, women and children were massacred in Filat, while 157 were killed or missing in Spasar, many of whom had gone there from other villages. All of the young women and girls were abused and raped by Zerva’s criminals. A few days later the Monarcho-Fascists rounded up all of the men that remained, and following the decision of a kangaroo court, consisting of Koēinja – president, Staropull – prosecuting attorney, and four other members, 47 innocent Albanians were massacred. In Granicė of Filat are buried the corpses of 46 persons who were slain with knives, and 45 others on the plain bordering the field of Xhelo Meto.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    Other families were wiped out, including parents, children and babies in their cribs. Women and young girls were raped. Hundreds of declarations by those who survived, describe the killings and endless suffering. They make plain the crimes and aims of the Monarcho-Fascists in Chamėria.
    Here are some examples:
    Sanie Bollati of Paramithia was burned alive with gasoline, after her breasts were cut off, and her eyes were plucked out. Ymer Murati was murdered and his body was chopped up in Paramithia.
    In the house of Sulo Tari had gathered more than 40 women. Ēili Popova from Popova, wearing a military uniform, and a group of soldiers, entered the house, seized the prettiest women and girls and began to rape them in another room. The screams of the girls and the women were deafening. This debauchery continued all night. Seri Fejzo, Fizret Sulo Tare and others, were victims of their baseness.
    Hilmi Beqiri of Filat was wounded in front of his family and left there, as the attackers took off. Wanting to shelter him, the family brought him over to dentist Mavrudhiu. He kept him for a few hours, but later sent word to have him taken away. The family then took him to Stavro Muhaxhiri, after which they went over to Shuaip Metja, where many other families had gathered. Andartėt [Greek irregulars – Translator’s note] were informed about this, and they went over and seized him, and after pulling his gold teeth with pliers, killed him.
    Malo Muho, an 80-year-old man, who had been ailing for four years, was butchered with a hatchet in front of his wife. His brain splattered on the lap of his wife, who gathered them together, and after covering him with a quilt, ran away.
    Abdyl Nurqe was seized in Spatar and taken barefooted to Filat, where he was dragged through the streets of the town, and finally killed in front of the house of Nidh Tafoqi.
    The family of Lile Rustemi from Sullashi, numbering 16 persons, most of them children, was totally wiped out, without anyone being able to survive.
    Xhelal Miniti of Paramithia was beheaded with a bayonet over the body of mufti Hasan Abdullahu.
    Sali Muhedini, Abedin Bakos, Muhamet Pronjė and Malo Sejdiu had their fingers, nose, tongue, and feet cut off, and while they screamed with pain, andartėt of Zerva sang the song of their commander, and rejoiced as they witnessed this scene of terror. In the end, they hung them with butchers’ grappling irons.
    Following is the declaration of Eshref Himi, a resident of Paramithia, concerning the massacres in Paramithia:
    “On Tuesday, June 27, 1944, at 7 in the morning, the Greek Monarcho-Fascists entered Paramithia, commanded by Col. Kamora, Major Kranja, Captain Kristo Stavropulli, an attorney; Captain Lefter Strugari, attorney; sub-lieutenant Nikolla Ēenos, and others. As soon as they entered the city, the order was given that no one should leave, because no one’s honor, liberty or property would be threatened in any way. Immediately in the afternoon, there began the arrest of men, women and children, and thievery as well. By next morning all the men were murdered.
    “After imprisoning me for four days, they let me go, so as to bury the dead. On the site called ‘The Church of Ajorgji’, I was able to identify five of the bodies. The others were beyond recognition, on account of the tortures inflicted on them. The five victims I was able to identify were: Met Qere, Sami Asimi, Mahmut Kupi, Adem Beqiri, Haki Mile. Two days later, they sent me over to ‘Golataj’, near the house of Dhimitėr Nikolla, where they had murdered 8 people. I could not recognize them, because they had cut them to pieces. All around there were corpses of people. A woman by the name of Sanie Bollati was subjected to frightful tortures and burned alive with gasoline. This tragedy took place on Wednesday, while on Friday morning her body was moved away, covered with a blanket by her mother and two townspeople, and placed in a cellar by order of the Monarcho-Fascists, who would not let anyone to see her. The wretched woman died there five days later. By then, her cadaver was full of maggots.
    “All of the things I declare here, I have seen with my own eyes. At first, I hid for five days on top of a ceiling, but was arrested by the Monarcho-Fascists and turned over to Major Kranja who, after questioning me briefly, ordered that I be imprisoned. In prison I found 380 persons, including women and children. One hundred twenty of those died of starvation. Four persons and me were in prison for 15 days, after which they transported us to Prevezė, and from there to Janinė, where we stayed for 40 days. There we were subjected to indescribable tortures. We were freed after the arrival in this town of troops of the EAM [National Liberation Front].”

    Dervish Sulo from the village of Spatar in [the district of] Filat, describes the massacres in Spatar as follows:
    “In the morning of a Saturday in September, 1944, the entire population gathered in front of the (Spatar) village mosque. The soldiers began seizing and raping women, girls, and even old women. Paēe Ēulani, 50 years of age, was raped, her hair was cut and even her ears, and finally she was killed in her own orchard, in the vicinity of Muēo. In our house was installed the family of Sako Banushi from Skropjona, which numbered eight women, men, and children. After raping the women, whose breasts were pierced with knives, all were massacred….
    “In the house of Damin Muhameti, 5 women and 3 children were killed….In the house of Fetin Muhameti, Hane Isufi and another woman were tortured and raped….
    In the house of Dule Sherifi, they cut off the heads of 80-year-old Sulejman Dhimicė and his wife. In the house of Meto Braho, 20 persons, including men, women and children, were burned alive….Kije Nurēia, 70 years of age, was knifed to death….In the vineyard of Zule and the garden of Avdyl Nurēe, I saw 20 people who had been massacred….In the house of Haxhi Latifi, the daughter of Haxhi Gulani was raped, while in the dwelling of Mejdi Meto, Hava Ajshja was raped, and Nano Arapi was both raped and killed.”
    According to statistics available to date, the victims and the missing among the Albanian minority in Greece, during the massacres in the years 1944-1945, number 2,877, broken down as follows:
    Filat and vicinity, 1, 286; Gumenicė and vicinity, 192; Paramithia and vicinity, 673; and Magellē and Parg, 626. This was the fate of all those who were unable to flee Chamėria, with the exception of a few women who are today living witnesses of the chilling massacres in Paramithia, Parg, Spatar, and Filat. The words that come from their mouths make clear the naked criminality and barbaric acts, organized by the Greek Monarcho-Fascist reaction in Chamėria.
    This carnage, inspired by the basest sentiments of chauvinistic and religious hatred, resulted in the displacement of nearly 23,000 Chams, who afterward found shelter in Albania under the most miserable conditions.
    A total of 68 villages with over 5,800 houses, were seized, destroyed and burned down.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    An account of the damages reveals that the Monarcho-Fascist forces of Zerva seized the following assets left behind [by the Chams] in Chamėria: 17,000 heads of sheep and goats, 1,200 heads of cattle, 21,000 kv [kuintals – 1 kv. equals 100 kg. – Translator’s note] of cereals, and 80,000 kv of [olive] oil; plus the product of the year 1944-1945, which totaled 11,000,000 kg. of cereals, and 3,000,000 kg of [olive]oil. During the emigration, 110,000 sheep and goats, and 2,400 cattle died or were lost.
    This shows clearly the economic catastrophe that befell our people, which was forced to take the roads of immigration with only the clothes on their back.
    This catastrophe happened because our people, together with the Greek people, fought alongside the EAM, rather than jump in the camp of the collaborationists who were allied with the occupiers.
    Chamėria contributed materially and morally to the great Anti-Fascist war. Hundreds of young Ēams joined the ranks of ELAS, when EAM sounded the alarm for freedom. With the broadening of the Anti-Fascist war against the German occupiers, the population of Chamėria threw itself unreservedly in the war against the occupier, and formed the Fourth Battalion of the XV th Regiment of ELAS. Out of the small population of Chamėria, stepped forward over 500 troops who fought with determination against the Nazi-Fascist occupiers and the traitors in the camp of Zerva.
    The blood of the national hero, Ali Demi, and of the martyr Bido Sejko; and the blood of martyrs Muharrem Myrtezaj, Ibrahim Hallumi,Hysen Vejseli and others, that was shed together with that of the Greek Partisans at the Pass of Qeramicė, bears out this fact.
    In Chamėria at the end of the war, the troops commanded by General Napoleon Zervas operated in our districts and villages not as liberators, but as executioners and sworn enemies of the Albanian element.
    In accordance with the Agreement of Caserta (Sarafi – Zervas) in August, 1944, the troops of the resistance were placed on a common front against the Nazi armies, under a joint command, in designated operational zones. This agreement was violated in Chamėria. Zerva’s troops compromised with the Germans, and attacked our troops and obstructed the activity of the IV th Battalion of the XV th Regiment in the zone of Filat. The operations and massacres in the district of Filat are directly connected with this situation, and in open contradiction to the trust and spirit of cooperation established in Caserta. The last village of Chamėria, Koska, which was one of the bases for organizing the resistance forces of the National-Liberation Front in Chamėria, was destroyed and burned. It was the final action in the destruction of Chamėria.
    A Commission of the Cham Anti-Fascist Council was dispatched to Athens on 10/30/1944, to meet with the Greek Government of Papandreu, and protest against the massacres in Chamėria, as well as demand that they be condemned. The Government of Papandreu refused to take any measures, or commit itself in any way regarding this matter.
    Following the operations of December, 1944 and the liberation of Chamėria from the Zervist occupation, a portion of our population was repatriated and settled in the district of Filat. Then, on March 12, 1945 government forces of the garrison of Corfu, in violation of the Agreement of Varkizė (February, 1945), organized and treacherously carried out the vile massacres in Vanre (Filat). This exposed once again the attitude and policy of the responsible authorities of the Greek Government, concerning the extermination of the Albanian population of CHAMĖRIA.
    In the wake of our immigration to Albania, the democratic Government of Albania gave to our masses boundless material and moral assistance. A fund of 240,000 francs was set aside by the Albanian Government for our people, and all-round efforts have been made to alleviate our deplorable condition.
    Responding to this situation, the UNNRA Mission in Albania won approval from its headquarters in Washington [D.C.], to dispense 1,450,000 dollars as immediate relief to the immigrants, in view of our difficult situation.

    Even in these conditions, the Cham immigrants continued to contribute more and more to the Front. At the Conference of Shalės (Konispol), held at the end of September, 1944, the voice of the Chams in exile was raised strongly in favor of collaboration against the occupier, and the injustices of the Greek Monarcho-Fascists.
    At the Congress of Vlorė on September 23, 1945 the Cham delegates, who represented all the groups of Cham immigrants in Albania, spoke against the massacres that Greek Monarcho-Fascists had perpetrated among them, and demanded by means of memoranda addressed to the London Conference, an inquiry into their problem, and the condemnation of those responsible for the pointless bloodshed and immeasurable sufferings in Chamėria. The Congress concluded with a resolution summarizing all of its proceedings.
    While in exile, we have many times addressed appeals to the world, regarding the rights that have been denied us, and asked for repatriation.
    On October 30, 1944 the Cham Anti-Fascist Council addressed a protest note to the Greek Government of National Unity, the Mediterranean Chief-of-Staff, the Allied Government, and the Central Committee of EAM, discussing the barbaric actions of Greek Fascists in Chamėria.
    On May 9, 1945 the Cham Anti-Fascist Council dispatched to the Military Missions a copy of the telegram addressed to the President of the Conference in San Francisco, concerning the rights of the Chams, based on the Atlantic Charter.
    On June 27, 1945 telegrams of protest by the Cham Anti-Fascist Council, against the massacres in Chamėria, were addressed to the Democratic Government of Albania, the Allied Military Missions including the Soviet, the English, the American, the French, and the Czechoslovak; the Yugoslav Legation, and the Albanians in America, Italy and Bulgaria.
    A memorandum was addressed to Mr. Hutchinson, Labor [Party] Deputy in Great Britain, on 11/26/1945.
    Telegrams were addressed to the General Directorate of UNRRA, by the Cham Anti-Fascist Committee (9/25/1945), asking for aid.
    A memorandum was addressed to the Presidency of the Conference of Allied Foreign Ministers in London, by the delegates of the Cham Congress, in September, 1945.
    A memorandum was addressed to the Assembly of the United Nations in London, by the Cham Anti-Fascist Committee, on January 11, 1946, bringing up again the issue of the massacres, and asking for the rights due [the Chams].
    A memorandum was addressed to the United Nations Assembly in New York, by the Cham Anti-Fascist Committee on October 25, 1946 and later.
    We are victims of the Monarchist regime that reigns in Greece today. Together with the fraternal Greek people, we are suffering the consequences of the dark terror that was inflicted on them throughout Greece.
    For two and a half years now, we roam Albania in misery, away from the Fatherland, while our fertile lands are exploited unjustly by the agents of the Monarcho-Fascists in Chamėria.
    Our travails in exile have been, and continue to be without bounds. Thousands have perished owing to the situation that has come into being.
    Despite our protests and the rights to which we are entitled, we continue to live in exile, while the Greek Government, without any justification, is busy quartering alien inhabitants in our Chamėria, in order to prevent our return.
    In the name of our people, we protest once again against all these things, and present before the Investigating Committee of the UNO Security Council, the [issue of the] tragedy that has taken place in Chamėria, drawing attention to the barbaric acts carried out with the intention of wiping out the Cham people.
    We stress the need for a speedy resolution of the Cham problem, and being persuaded that our demands will be met, we set them forth, as follows:
    1. That immediate steps be taken to prevent the settling of foreign elements in our homes.
    2. That all Chams be repatriated.
    3. That all our properties be returned [to us] and all damages to real and moveable properties of ours be compensated.
    4. That assistance be given to rebuild our homes and resettle [our people].
    5. That steps be taken to insure the benefits that derive from international treaties and mandates, such as the security of civil, political, and cultural rights, and the security of the person.
    6. That all persons responsible for crimes committed be tried and punished.
    With our most distinguished considerations:

    Ēėshtja ēame lindi si problem i mprehtė nė marrėdhėniet midis dy vendeve, Shqipėrisė dhe Greqisė, qysh nė Kongresin e Berlinit mė 1878 dhe u pėrligj mbas vendimeve tė Konferencės se Ambasadorėve nė Londėr mė 1913, ku Ēamėria dhe viset e tjera tė Shqipėrisė iu shkėputėn me pa tė drejtė, duke i kėnaqur me aneksimin e tyre, shtetet fqinje.
    Qe nga viti 1913 Ēamėria konsiderohet nga ne, tokė e pushtuar me dhunė nga Greqia.
    Ēėshtja Ēame ėshtė njė tragjedi kombėtare jo vetėm nė njerėz por edhe nė territore. Marrja e Krahinės sė Ēamėrisė kėsaj barriere pėr Greqinė i hapi dyert pretendimeve absurde tė shovinizmit grek pėr tė marrė hapėsira tė tjera shqiptare.
    Tragjedia Ēame njė padrejtėsi qė kėrkon zgjidhje

    Nė skajin mė Jugor tė Shqipėrisė sė sotme fillon krahina shqiptare e Ēamėrisė ose siē quhet sot nga administrata greke Thesproti.

    Ajo pėrbėn pjesėn mė jugore tė trevave etnike tė Epirit tė Jugut tė banuara prej shqiptarėve qė nga antikiteti (nga kohėrat Pollazgo-Ilire) e deri mė sot.

    Njė popull e njė vazhdimėsi territori etnik. Kėtė e dėshmojnė autorėt e lashtėsisė greke dhe gjithashtu Enciklopedia e madhe greke si dhe shumė autoritete shkencore botėrore. Kėtė e vėrteton prezenca e gjallė, faktori njeri, shqiptar ne gjuhė, kulturė dhe tradita.

    Popullsia e Ēamėrisė ka qenė homogjene shqiptare 99% nė qytetet, 100% nė fshatra. Historikisht pėrkatėsia fetare e krahinės sė Ēamėrisė,ka kaluar nė njė proces tė gjatė ndryshimesh tė diktuara nga rrethana tė caktuara historike. Nga paganizmi,ne lashtėsi,ne katolicizėm nė shekujt e parė pas erės sė re deri nė shekullin trembėdhjetė-katėrmbėdhjetė. Prezencėn e besimit katolik nė Ēamėri e dėshmojnė emrat e shqiptarėve nė ato kohė,sidomos e princave tė saj si Pjeter Losha,Gjin Bue Shpata,etj,(prania nė masė e emrave Gjin,Gjon,Mark,Lek,Pal etj..). Nė kėto periudha (shekulli 13-14) si rezultat i dyndjeve bizantine nė krahinėn e Epirit (invazionet greko-serbe),kjo krahinė kaloi nė ortodoksizėm. Deri nė fillim tė shekullit 18,popullsia e kėsaj krahine ishte e besimit ortodoks. Mbas kėsaj periudhe fillon procesi i islamizmit nė mes tė shqiptarėve. Si rezultat i kėtij procesi sipas tė dhėnave statistikore tė administratės turke,50% e popullsisė shqiptare u kthyen nė besimin islam dhe 50% ruajtėn besimin ortodoks. Rreth kėtyre shifrave nė dėm tė etnisė shqiptare ėshtė spekuluar deri mė sot. Regjistrimi i vitit 1910 i administratės sė Turqve tė rinj dėshmon se nė kėtė krahinė jetojnė 83.898 shqiptarė mysliman dhe ortodoks. Ndėrsa vjetari statistikor i qeverisė greke i vitit 1936 shėnon se nė Ēamėri banojnė vetėm 26.000 shqiptarė duke mos pėrmendur shqiptarėt ortodoksė tė cilėt qeveria greke i konsideron si grekė.

    Si rezultat i spastrimit etnik (gjenocidit) qė u bė nė 1944-1945 nė krahinėn e Ēamėrisė u dėbuan me dhunė 30.000 shqiptarė mysliman tė cilėt gjetėn strehė nė Republikėn e Shqipėrisė ku jetojnė edhe sot.

    Kjo popullatė sot kap shifrėn mbi 150,000 vet,shifrėn e cila shpjegohet me natalitetin e lartė tė kėsaj popullate mbas gjenocidit.

    Ndėrkohė qė nė Ēamėri-Thespasi (Greqi) Komuniteti autokton i shqiptarėve tė besimit ortodoks kap shifrėn 250-300,000. Ky komunitet sot nuk guxon tė vet deklaroj identitetin e vet si rezultat i politikes mohuese e asimiluese qe ndjekin qarqet qeveritare greke ndaj prezencės se etnive nė territorin grek.

    Dėshmi e pakontestueshme pėr prezencėn e shqiptarėve ortodokse sot nė Ēamėri (Greqi)ėshtė edhe gjaku e lidhjet e hershme fisnore qė kanė me ta Ēamėt myslimane,sa do tė pėrpiqen e ta mohojnė kėtė prezencė qarqet greke.

    DOCUMENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF CHAM ALBANIANS



    IN EXILE, ON GREEK PERSECUTION OF THE CHAMS, SUBMITTED TO THE HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION OF THE UNITED NATIONS IN 1945
    We, the Anti-Fascist Committee of Cham immigrants in Albania, having faith in the democratic and humanitarian principles of the UN, and acting in the name of Cham immigrants in Albania, do hereby address the Investigating Commission concerning our lost rights, oppression, persecutions and massacres committed by Greek Fascists in order to exterminate the Albanian minority in Greece.
    In pursuit of the protests and appeals that we have addressed to the Great Allies and the United Nations, we ask for justice with regard to the following:
    For 32 years in succession, Greek chauvinist and reactionary cliques, in brutal violation of every humanitarian principle, and in total disregard of international treaties, have carried out a policy of extermination toward the Albanian minority in Greece.
    Beginning with the Greek occupation of Chamėria on February 23, 1913, the gang of Deli Janaqi, incited and assisted by the local authorities, massacred without cause whatsoever 72 men, in the brook of Selani, district of Paramithia.
    This massacre marked the beginning of the drive to exterminate the Albanian minority, and made clear the orientation of Greek policy toward our population.
    The hounding, persecutions, imprisonment, internment, tortures, and plunder carried out on the pretext of disarming [the population] in the years 1914-1921, the terrorist actions of outlaws, and the provocations of Gjen Baire in 1921, reveal the reality of the sufferings to which our population was subjected during the Greek occupation.
    Koska, Lopsi, Varfanj, Karbunari, Kardhiqi, Paramithija, Margėllėēi, Arpica, Grykohori, and others, are some of the villages that paid an especially high price as a consequence of the terror.
    In 1922-1923, the Greek authorities decided to displace the Moslem element of Chamėria, in exchange for the Greeks in Asia Minor, on the pretext that we were Turks. This shameless act of the Athenian authorities ran into opposition on our part and the intervention of the League of Nations which, upon ascertaining the Albanian nationality of our people, rejected the decision of the Greek Government.
    But despite the intervention of the League of Nations, and the solemn commitments undertaken by the Greek Government in Lausanne on January 16, 1923, the authorities in Athens continued their policy of extermination. They resorted to every device to make it difficult for the Albanian element to remain in Chamėria, and confiscated 6,000 hectares of land owned by hundreds of families in Dushk, Gumenicė, Kardhiq, Karbunarė, and others, without compensating them in the least.
    The government in Athens settled the immigrants from Asia Minor in Chamėria, with the intention of peopling it with Greeks and creating conditions that would lead to the emigration of the autochthonous Albanian population.
    Entire families were forced to abandon their birthplace and migrate to Turkey, Albania, America and elsewhere, and villages like Petrovica and Shendellia were deserted completely by their Albanian inhabitants.
    Under these circumstances, we did not enjoy any national rights, not even the use of our mother tongue. Fanaticism and ignorance were given support, instead of developing our national culture and stimulating progress. Instead of opening schools, they subsidized religious clubs in the Arab language. Ninety-five percent of our population remained illiterate. The province of Chamėria, a fertile and prosperous land, remained backward, without economic development, without communication facilities, and in the hands of money-lenders and monopolists, such as: Koēoni, Pitulejtė, Kufalla, Zhulla, Ringa and others, who impoverished and enslaved the entire region.
    In the war against Fascism, and more precisely at its conclusion, the reactionary Monarcho-Fascist forces of Llakė of Suli, which were created by the reaction to serve the occupier under the command of General Napoleon Zerva, turned on and treacherously massacred the Moslem Albanian inhabitants of Chamėria.
    At that time, when the troops of ELAS [National Popular Liberation Army] and our troops were committed to fighting the Germans, the leadership of EOEA [National Troops of Greek Guerrilas], in league with the Germans, maneuvered to gain positions to fight a civil war. And when our forces, in keeping with the spirit and decisions of the protocol of Kasartė (Sarafis-Zerva), August, 1944, implemented the orders of the Joint Command in pursuit of the Germans, General Napoleon Zerva, commander of the resistance forces in Epir (ELAS – EOEA), gave orders to massacre the innocent population of Chamėria.
    The massacres in Chamėria were a flagrant violation of humanitarian principles, and a shameless disregard for the principles and the nature of the Anti-Fascist struggle. The massacres in Chamėria were a result of the collaboration and agreements with the Germans, who in the process of retreating, let Zerva’s forces take their place. Here is a concrete example of the collaboration between Zerva’s forces and the Germans. Theodhor Vito, the commander of the Zerva forces in the district of Filat, met the commander of the retreating German forces on September 22, 1944 in the village of Panaromen, 3 km. from Filat, just one day before the entrance of Zerva’s forces in Filat. Right after that meeting, and even before the German forces cleared out of Filat entirely, the forces of Theodhor Vito entered Filat. That close collaboration strengthened the position of the Zerva forces, and enabled them to initiate the terror and the massacres on a broad scale in all the districts of Chamėria.
    The forces of the X th Division of EOEA, under the command of Col. Vasil Kamaras, and specifically the XVI th Regiment of that division, which was led by Kranja and his aides Lefter Strugari, attorney Stavropullos Ballumi Zotos, the notorious criminals Patazejt and others, entered the town of Paramithia on June 27, 1944. Contrary to their promises and the agreement arrived at between mufti Hasan Abdullaj, on the one hand, and Shapera and the Bishop of Paramithia, on the other, who acted as agents of Zerva, the most ignoble massacres were set in motion. Defenseless men, women and children became targets for the Greek Monarcho-Fascists. The number of the massacred in the town of Paramithia and vicinity reached 600 souls.
    On July 28, 1944 the forces of Regiment Nr. 40, commanded by Agores, entered Parg and massacred 52 men, women and children.
    The forces of EOEA under the command of Theodhor Vito, Ilija Kaqo, Hristo Mavrudhi, Hristo Kaqo, Hari Dhiamanti and others, first encircled the town of Filat, then on Saturday morning of September 23, 1944 entered the town. The same day they also entered Spatėr. They plundered and seized all of the families, and whatever else they found. On the eve of [September] 23 and the dawn of September 24, 1944 there entered also the forces commanded by Kranja, Strugari and others. As soon as these forces arrived, the massacres began. Forty-seven men, women and children were massacred in Filat, while 157 were killed or missing in Spasar, many of whom had gone there from other villages. All of the young women and girls were abused and raped by Zerva’s criminals. A few days later the Monarcho-Fascists rounded up all of the men that remained, and following the decision of a kangaroo court, consisting of Koēinja – president, Staropull – prosecuting attorney, and four other members, 47 innocent Albanians were massacred. In Granicė of Filat are buried the corpses of 46 persons who were slain with knives, and 45 others on the plain bordering the field of Xhelo Meto.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    Other families were wiped out, including parents, children and babies in their cribs. Women and young girls were raped. Hundreds of declarations by those who survived, describe the killings and endless suffering. They make plain the crimes and aims of the Monarcho-Fascists in Chamėria.
    Here are some examples:
    Sanie Bollati of Paramithia was burned alive with gasoline, after her breasts were cut off, and her eyes were plucked out. Ymer Murati was murdered and his body was chopped up in Paramithia.
    In the house of Sulo Tari had gathered more than 40 women. Ēili Popova from Popova, wearing a military uniform, and a group of soldiers, entered the house, seized the prettiest women and girls and began to rape them in another room. The screams of the girls and the women were deafening. This debauchery continued all night. Seri Fejzo, Fizret Sulo Tare and others, were victims of their baseness.
    Hilmi Beqiri of Filat was wounded in front of his family and left there, as the attackers took off. Wanting to shelter him, the family brought him over to dentist Mavrudhiu. He kept him for a few hours, but later sent word to have him taken away. The family then took him to Stavro Muhaxhiri, after which they went over to Shuaip Metja, where many other families had gathered. Andartėt [Greek irregulars – Translator’s note] were informed about this, and they went over and seized him, and after pulling his gold teeth with pliers, killed him.
    Malo Muho, an 80-year-old man, who had been ailing for four years, was butchered with a hatchet in front of his wife. His brain splattered on the lap of his wife, who gathered them together, and after covering him with a quilt, ran away.
    Abdyl Nurqe was seized in Spatar and taken barefooted to Filat, where he was dragged through the streets of the town, and finally killed in front of the house of Nidh Tafoqi.
    The family of Lile Rustemi from Sullashi, numbering 16 persons, most of them children, was totally wiped out, without anyone being able to survive.
    Xhelal Miniti of Paramithia was beheaded with a bayonet over the body of mufti Hasan Abdullahu.
    Sali Muhedini, Abedin Bakos, Muhamet Pronjė and Malo Sejdiu had their fingers, nose, tongue, and feet cut off, and while they screamed with pain, andartėt of Zerva sang the song of their commander, and rejoiced as they witnessed this scene of terror. In the end, they hung them with butchers’ grappling irons.
    Following is the declaration of Eshref Himi, a resident of Paramithia, concerning the massacres in Paramithia:
    “On Tuesday, June 27, 1944, at 7 in the morning, the Greek Monarcho-Fascists entered Paramithia, commanded by Col. Kamora, Major Kranja, Captain Kristo Stavropulli, an attorney; Captain Lefter Strugari, attorney; sub-lieutenant Nikolla Ēenos, and others. As soon as they entered the city, the order was given that no one should leave, because no one’s honor, liberty or property would be threatened in any way. Immediately in the afternoon, there began the arrest of men, women and children, and thievery as well. By next morning all the men were murdered.
    “After imprisoning me for four days, they let me go, so as to bury the dead. On the site called ‘The Church of Ajorgji’, I was able to identify five of the bodies. The others were beyond recognition, on account of the tortures inflicted on them. The five victims I was able to identify were: Met Qere, Sami Asimi, Mahmut Kupi, Adem Beqiri, Haki Mile. Two days later, they sent me over to ‘Golataj’, near the house of Dhimitėr Nikolla, where they had murdered 8 people. I could not recognize them, because they had cut them to pieces. All around there were corpses of people. A woman by the name of Sanie Bollati was subjected to frightful tortures and burned alive with gasoline. This tragedy took place on Wednesday, while on Friday morning her body was moved away, covered with a blanket by her mother and two townspeople, and placed in a cellar by order of the Monarcho-Fascists, who would not let anyone to see her. The wretched woman died there five days later. By then, her cadaver was full of maggots.
    “All of the things I declare here, I have seen with my own eyes. At first, I hid for five days on top of a ceiling, but was arrested by the Monarcho-Fascists and turned over to Major Kranja who, after questioning me briefly, ordered that I be imprisoned. In prison I found 380 persons, including women and children. One hundred twenty of those died of starvation. Four persons and me were in prison for 15 days, after which they transported us to Prevezė, and from there to Janinė, where we stayed for 40 days. There we were subjected to indescribable tortures. We were freed after the arrival in this town of troops of the EAM [National Liberation Front].”

    Dervish Sulo from the village of Spatar in [the district of] Filat, describes the massacres in Spatar as follows:
    “In the morning of a Saturday in September, 1944, the entire population gathered in front of the (Spatar) village mosque. The soldiers began seizing and raping women, girls, and even old women. Paēe Ēulani, 50 years of age, was raped, her hair was cut and even her ears, and finally she was killed in her own orchard, in the vicinity of Muēo. In our house was installed the family of Sako Banushi from Skropjona, which numbered eight women, men, and children. After raping the women, whose breasts were pierced with knives, all were massacred….
    “In the house of Damin Muhameti, 5 women and 3 children were killed….In the house of Fetin Muhameti, Hane Isufi and another woman were tortured and raped….
    In the house of Dule Sherifi, they cut off the heads of 80-year-old Sulejman Dhimicė and his wife. In the house of Meto Braho, 20 persons, including men, women and children, were burned alive….Kije Nurēia, 70 years of age, was knifed to death….In the vineyard of Zule and the garden of Avdyl Nurēe, I saw 20 people who had been massacred….In the house of Haxhi Latifi, the daughter of Haxhi Gulani was raped, while in the dwelling of Mejdi Meto, Hava Ajshja was raped, and Nano Arapi was both raped and killed.”
    According to statistics available to date, the victims and the missing among the Albanian minority in Greece, during the massacres in the years 1944-1945, number 2,877, broken down as follows:
    Filat and vicinity, 1, 286; Gumenicė and vicinity, 192; Paramithia and vicinity, 673; and Magellē and Parg, 626. This was the fate of all those who were unable to flee Chamėria, with the exception of a few women who are today living witnesses of the chilling massacres in Paramithia, Parg, Spatar, and Filat. The words that come from their mouths make clear the naked criminality and barbaric acts, organized by the Greek Monarcho-Fascist reaction in Chamėria.
    This carnage, inspired by the basest sentiments of chauvinistic and religious hatred, resulted in the displacement of nearly 23,000 Chams, who afterward found shelter in Albania under the most miserable conditions.
    A total of 68 villages with over 5,800 houses, were seized, destroyed and burned down.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    An account of the damages reveals that the Monarcho-Fascist forces of Zerva seized the following assets left behind [by the Chams] in Chamėria: 17,000 heads of sheep and goats, 1,200 heads of cattle, 21,000 kv [kuintals – 1 kv. equals 100 kg. – Translator’s note] of cereals, and 80,000 kv of [olive] oil; plus the product of the year 1944-1945, which totaled 11,000,000 kg. of cereals, and 3,000,000 kg of [olive]oil. During the emigration, 110,000 sheep and goats, and 2,400 cattle died or were lost.
    This shows clearly the economic catastrophe that befell our people, which was forced to take the roads of immigration with only the clothes on their back.
    This catastrophe happened because our people, together with the Greek people, fought alongside the EAM, rather than jump in the camp of the collaborationists who were allied with the occupiers.
    Chamėria contributed materially and morally to the great Anti-Fascist war. Hundreds of young Ēams joined the ranks of ELAS, when EAM sounded the alarm for freedom. With the broadening of the Anti-Fascist war against the German occupiers, the population of Chamėria threw itself unreservedly in the war against the occupier, and formed the Fourth Battalion of the XV th Regiment of ELAS. Out of the small population of Chamėria, stepped forward over 500 troops who fought with determination against the Nazi-Fascist occupiers and the traitors in the camp of Zerva.
    The blood of the national hero, Ali Demi, and of the martyr Bido Sejko; and the blood of martyrs Muharrem Myrtezaj, Ibrahim Hallumi,Hysen Vejseli and others, that was shed together with that of the Greek Partisans at the Pass of Qeramicė, bears out this fact.
    In Chamėria at the end of the war, the troops commanded by General Napoleon Zervas operated in our districts and villages not as liberators, but as executioners and sworn enemies of the Albanian element.
    In accordance with the Agreement of Caserta (Sarafi – Zervas) in August, 1944, the troops of the resistance were placed on a common front against the Nazi armies, under a joint command, in designated operational zones. This agreement was violated in Chamėria. Zerva’s troops compromised with the Germans, and attacked our troops and obstructed the activity of the IV th Battalion of the XV th Regiment in the zone of Filat. The operations and massacres in the district of Filat are directly connected with this situation, and in open contradiction to the trust and spirit of cooperation established in Caserta. The last village of Chamėria, Koska, which was one of the bases for organizing the resistance forces of the National-Liberation Front in Chamėria, was destroyed and burned. It was the final action in the destruction of Chamėria.
    A Commission of the Cham Anti-Fascist Council was dispatched to Athens on 10/30/1944, to meet with the Greek Government of Papandreu, and protest against the massacres in Chamėria, as well as demand that they be condemned. The Government of Papandreu refused to take any measures, or commit itself in any way regarding this matter.
    Following the operations of December, 1944 and the liberation of Chamėria from the Zervist occupation, a portion of our population was repatriated and settled in the district of Filat. Then, on March 12, 1945 government forces of the garrison of Corfu, in violation of the Agreement of Varkizė (February, 1945), organized and treacherously carried out the vile massacres in Vanre (Filat). This exposed once again the attitude and policy of the responsible authorities of the Greek Government, concerning the extermination of the Albanian population of CHAMĖRIA.
    In the wake of our immigration to Albania, the democratic Government of Albania gave to our masses boundless material and moral assistance. A fund of 240,000 francs was set aside by the Albanian Government for our people, and all-round efforts have been made to alleviate our deplorable condition.
    Responding to this situation, the UNNRA Mission in Albania won approval from its headquarters in Washington [D.C.], to dispense 1,450,000 dollars as immediate relief to the immigrants, in view of our difficult situation.

    Even in these conditions, the Cham immigrants continued to contribute more and more to the Front. At the Conference of Shalės (Konispol), held at the end of September, 1944, the voice of the Chams in exile was raised strongly in favor of collaboration against the occupier, and the injustices of the Greek Monarcho-Fascists.
    At the Congress of Vlorė on September 23, 1945 the Cham delegates, who represented all the groups of Cham immigrants in Albania, spoke against the massacres that Greek Monarcho-Fascists had perpetrated among them, and demanded by means of memoranda addressed to the London Conference, an inquiry into their problem, and the condemnation of those responsible for the pointless bloodshed and immeasurable sufferings in Chamėria. The Congress concluded with a resolution summarizing all of its proceedings.
    While in exile, we have many times addressed appeals to the world, regarding the rights that have been denied us, and asked for repatriation.
    On October 30, 1944 the Cham Anti-Fascist Council addressed a protest note to the Greek Government of National Unity, the Mediterranean Chief-of-Staff, the Allied Government, and the Central Committee of EAM, discussing the barbaric actions of Greek Fascists in Chamėria.
    On May 9, 1945 the Cham Anti-Fascist Council dispatched to the Military Missions a copy of the telegram addressed to the President of the Conference in San Francisco, concerning the rights of the Chams, based on the Atlantic Charter.
    On June 27, 1945 telegrams of protest by the Cham Anti-Fascist Council, against the massacres in Chamėria, were addressed to the Democratic Government of Albania, the Allied Military Missions including the Soviet, the English, the American, the French, and the Czechoslovak; the Yugoslav Legation, and the Albanians in America, Italy and Bulgaria.
    A memorandum was addressed to Mr. Hutchinson, Labor [Party] Deputy in Great Britain, on 11/26/1945.
    Telegrams were addressed to the General Directorate of UNRRA, by the Cham Anti-Fascist Committee (9/25/1945), asking for aid.
    A memorandum was addressed to the Presidency of the Conference of Allied Foreign Ministers in London, by the delegates of the Cham Congress, in September, 1945.
    A memorandum was addressed to the Assembly of the United Nations in London, by the Cham Anti-Fascist Committee, on January 11, 1946, bringing up again the issue of the massacres, and asking for the rights due [the Chams].
    A memorandum was addressed to the United Nations Assembly in New York, by the Cham Anti-Fascist Committee on October 25, 1946 and later.
    We are victims of the Monarchist regime that reigns in Greece today. Together with the fraternal Greek people, we are suffering the consequences of the dark terror that was inflicted on them throughout Greece.
    For two and a half years now, we roam Albania in misery, away from the Fatherland, while our fertile lands are exploited unjustly by the agents of the Monarcho-Fascists in Chamėria.
    Our travails in exile have been, and continue to be without bounds. Thousands have perished owing to the situation that has come into being.
    Despite our protests and the rights to which we are entitled, we continue to live in exile, while the Greek Government, without any justification, is busy quartering alien inhabitants in our Chamėria, in order to prevent our return.
    In the name of our people, we protest once again against all these things, and present before the Investigating Committee of the UNO Security Council, the [issue of the] tragedy that has taken place in Chamėria, drawing attention to the barbaric acts carried out with the intention of wiping out the Cham people.
    We stress the need for a speedy resolution of the Cham problem, and being persuaded that our demands will be met, we set them forth, as follows:
    1. That immediate steps be taken to prevent the settling of foreign elements in our homes.
    2. That all Chams be repatriated.
    3. That all our properties be returned [to us] and all damages to real and moveable properties of ours be compensated.
    4. That assistance be given to rebuild our homes and resettle [our people].
    5. That steps be taken to insure the benefits that derive from international treaties and mandates, such as the security of civil, political, and cultural rights, and the security of the person.
    6. That all persons responsible for crimes committed be tried and punished.
    With our most distinguished considerations:

    Ēėshtja ēame lindi si problem i mprehtė nė marrėdhėniet midis dy vendeve, Shqipėrisė dhe Greqisė, qysh nė Kongresin e Berlinit mė 1878 dhe u pėrligj mbas vendimeve tė Konferencės se Ambasadorėve nė Londėr mė 1913, ku Ēamėria dhe viset e tjera tė Shqipėrisė iu shkėputėn me pa tė drejtė, duke i kėnaqur me aneksimin e tyre, shtetet fqinje.
    Qe nga viti 1913 Ēamėria konsiderohet nga ne, tokė e pushtuar me dhunė nga Greqia.
    Ēėshtja Ēame ėshtė njė tragjedi kombėtare jo vetėm nė njerėz por edhe nė territore. Marrja e Krahinės sė Ēamėrisė kėsaj barriere pėr Greqinė i hapi dyert pretendimeve absurde tė shovinizmit grek pėr tė marrė hapėsira tė tjera shqiptare.
    Tragjedia Ēame njė padrejtėsi qė kėrkon zgjidhje

    Nė skajin mė Jugor tė Shqipėrisė sė sotme fillon krahina shqiptare e Ēamėrisė ose siē quhet sot nga administrata greke Thesproti.

    Ajo pėrbėn pjesėn mė jugore tė trevave etnike tė Epirit tė Jugut tė banuara prej shqiptarėve qė nga antikiteti (nga kohėrat Pollazgo-Ilire) e deri mė sot.

    Njė popull e njė vazhdimėsi territori etnik. Kėtė e dėshmojnė autorėt e lashtėsisė greke dhe gjithashtu Enciklopedia e madhe greke si dhe shumė autoritete shkencore botėrore. Kėtė e vėrteton prezenca e gjallė, faktori njeri, shqiptar ne gjuhė, kulturė dhe tradita.

    Popullsia e Ēamėrisė ka qenė homogjene shqiptare 99% nė qytetet, 100% nė fshatra. Historikisht pėrkatėsia fetare e krahinės sė Ēamėrisė,ka kaluar nė njė proces tė gjatė ndryshimesh tė diktuara nga rrethana tė caktuara historike. Nga paganizmi,ne lashtėsi,ne katolicizėm nė shekujt e parė pas erės sė re deri nė shekullin trembėdhjetė-katėrmbėdhjetė. Prezencėn e besimit katolik nė Ēamėri e dėshmojnė emrat e shqiptarėve nė ato kohė,sidomos e princave tė saj si Pjeter Losha,Gjin Bue Shpata,etj,(prania nė masė e emrave Gjin,Gjon,Mark,Lek,Pal etj..). Nė kėto periudha (shekulli 13-14) si rezultat i dyndjeve bizantine nė krahinėn e Epirit (invazionet greko-serbe),kjo krahinė kaloi nė ortodoksizėm. Deri nė fillim tė shekullit 18,popullsia e kėsaj krahine ishte e besimit ortodoks. Mbas kėsaj periudhe fillon procesi i islamizmit nė mes tė shqiptarėve. Si rezultat i kėtij procesi sipas tė dhėnave statistikore tė administratės turke,50% e popullsisė shqiptare u kthyen nė besimin islam dhe 50% ruajtėn besimin ortodoks. Rreth kėtyre shifrave nė dėm tė etnisė shqiptare ėshtė spekuluar deri mė sot. Regjistrimi i vitit 1910 i administratės sė Turqve tė rinj dėshmon se nė kėtė krahinė jetojnė 83.898 shqiptarė mysliman dhe ortodoks. Ndėrsa vjetari statistikor i qeverisė greke i vitit 1936 shėnon se nė Ēamėri banojnė vetėm 26.000 shqiptarė duke mos pėrmendur shqiptarėt ortodoksė tė cilėt qeveria greke i konsideron si grekė.

    Si rezultat i spastrimit etnik (gjenocidit) qė u bė nė 1944-1945 nė krahinėn e Ēamėrisė u dėbuan me dhunė 30.000 shqiptarė mysliman tė cilėt gjetėn strehė nė Republikėn e Shqipėrisė ku jetojnė edhe sot.

    Kjo popullatė sot kap shifrėn mbi 150,000 vet,shifrėn e cila shpjegohet me natalitetin e lartė tė kėsaj popullate mbas gjenocidit.

    Ndėrkohė qė nė Ēamėri-Thespasi (Greqi) Komuniteti autokton i shqiptarėve tė besimit ortodoks kap shifrėn 250-300,000. Ky komunitet sot nuk guxon tė vet deklaroj identitetin e vet si rezultat i politikes mohuese e asimiluese qe ndjekin qarqet qeveritare greke ndaj prezencės se etnive nė territorin grek.

    Dėshmi e pakontestueshme pėr prezencėn e shqiptarėve ortodokse sot nė Ēamėri (Greqi)ėshtė edhe gjaku e lidhjet e hershme fisnore qė kanė me ta Ēamėt myslimane,sa do tė pėrpiqen e ta mohojnė kėtė prezencė qarqet greke.

    lass mich nicht mit den griechen in srebrenica anfangen.

    allein das "nach tirana gebombt" zeigt deine ader junge.
    es wird irgendwann einen krieg geben und gnade euch gott.
    oder zeus!

    ihr seid ein leichtes opfer.
    wir teilen euch.
    Wie viel hass muss man auf ein Volk haben und wie krank muss man eigentlich sein um sich einen Krieg zu wünschen und sachen zu sagen wie " ihr seit ein leichtes opfer"
    "wir teilen euch".
