The Pontian Association of Famagusta "TEMETERON" organizes an event 105 Years since the Pontian Genocide and 50 Years since the Invasion of Cyprus.

May 19 is a particularly important day for the Pontic people, since it is the official day of commemoration of the Pontic genocide. Celebrating this day is much more than just an event. It is an opportunity to highlight the history, cultural heritage and resilience of a people who faced the most tragic challenge.

The event will include a torch relay from Deryneia roadblock to Ag. GeorgiouParalimniou, where various events will take place such as speeches, recitations of poems and songs, as well as the projection of images and video documents from the events.

This act is an attempt to highlight the importance of May 19, as well as the commemoration day for the Turkish invasion of Cyprus 50 years ago. Through the torch relay and the events that follow, we wish to strengthen our emotional, cultural and historical connection with our roots and keep alive the memory of our ancestors.
