Remember The Holocaust

This one of the many Holocausts our Hellenic people suffered under the genocidal Turks. In Arkadi , Crete on November 8, 1866 less than 300 Hellenic warriors and some 700 women and children sought refuge in the Arkadi monastery and were besieged by 20,000 Turkish soldiers armed with cannons and heavy arms. The Turks broke through and the beseiged Hellenes rather than surrender to Turkish rape and slaughter, set spark to a gunpowder store.
A HOLOCAUST (in the true sense of the word --a whole burning) happened.
