THE LAST BYZANTINE

The Byzantine heritage was wiped out between 1915 - 1922 by the slaughter of 3.5 million Christians by the Turks. The first great genocide of the C20.

My love didn’t come from nowhere.

My father was a bastard, a sailor on the seas,

My mother just a peasant

Spent her life upon her knees.
