Osmanisches Reich: Das Massaker von Batak

Es sollen Stiftungen zur Förderung von Analphabeten geben.

An deiner Stelle würde ich nicht lange warten

Kannst du das begründen?

Es müsste übrigens heissen: Es soll Stiftungen zur Förderung von Analphabeten geben.

Hast du dich schon angemeldet?

By the way:

Du hetzt doch nur, dir geht es nur um Analphabeten bashing, mehr nicht. (korrigierte Fassung vom Zeuge Hartzcores)

Du hetzt doch nur, dir geht nur um Türken bashing, mehr nicht.

Also, hast du den Zeuge Hartzcores schon über seinen Rächtschraipfähler benachrichtigt? Den hatte ich nämlich zitiert, Blitzbirne ;)
The Turkish Atrocities In Bulgaria

More than 5,000 of the 7,000 inhabitants of the town of Batak, including women and children, were raped, slaughtered, beheaded or burned alive by Ottoman irregulars who left piles of dead bodies around the town square and church in 1876, giving start of the April Uprising.
American journalist and war correspondent working for the New York Herald and the London Daily News, Januarius McGahan, who first described the Turkish atrocities in Bulgaria, gives eye-witness account of the aftermath some two months following the events. His complete work can be read here. Amazingly, Turkish history, as taught in schools today, fails to mention a word on the 500 years of genocide and systematic rape and torture of the Bulgarian people and my Turkish peers are quite ignorant of the facts and the history their forefathers wrote in innocent blood.

The April Uprising (Bulgarian: Априлско въстание, Aprilsko vastanie) was an insurrection organised by the Bulgarians in the Ottoman Empire from April to May 1876, which indirectly resulted in the re-establishment of Bulgaria as an independent nation in 1878. The uprising was brutally crushed by the regular Ottoman Army and irregular bashi-bazouk units, leading to a public outcry in Europe and the United States, with many famous intellectuals condemning the Ottoman atrocities and supporting the oppressed Bulgarian population.
The 1876 uprising involved only those parts of the Ottoman territories populated predominantly by Bulgarians. The emergence of Bulgarian national sentiments was closely related to the re-establishment of the independent Bulgarian church in 1870. Together with notions of romantic nationalism the rise of national awareness became known as the Bulgarian National Revival.
Close to 100,000 were slaughtered in Bulgaria following the uprising, which attempted to put an end to the 500 years of Turkish slavery. Millions were killed in the course the darkest ages of Bulgarian history. Amazingly, the nation survived and managed to preserve its ethnic, cultural and Christian identity.
