Οι βαρβαρότητες Βουλγάρων και Τούρκων στην εφημερίδα Yorkville enquirer το 1903

 

Το 1903 κατά την λεγόμενη επανάσταση του Εξέγερση του Ίλιντεν Βούλγαροι και Τούρκοι προέβησαν σε απίστευτες βαρβαρότητες.

Δολοφονήσαν γυναίκες και παιδιά χωρίς καμία διάκριση, στην περιοχή μας αθώες ψυχές έχασαν την ζωή τους μόνο και μόνο επειδή επέλεξαν να είναι μουσουλμάνοι ή Χριστιανοί, ενώ αρκετές ήταν οι περιπτώσεις στις οποίες οι ντόπιοι Βούλγαροι υπό την προστασία των εξεγερθέντων δολοφόνησαν και βίασαν απλούς κατοίκους βγάζοντας όλο το μένος τους. 

Στην περιοχή μας και την Σέρρες έδρασε ο Νταβιντοφ με 3 αξιωματικούς του και 850 άνδρες. 

WAR IN MACEDONIA.

The Revolution Against the Turks Is

Actually In Progress.

According to the popular conception

of the term, "a state of war" exists

today In those European vilayets

Macedonia. Whether the news called comes via Paris, London, Vienna, or

whether Its source be official,

or the Revolutionistsjournalistic, the situation in Monastir, themselves, Salonika, Bansko, an'd Djuma is shown

to be one of active hostility. Mines

have been exploded, people have been

slain, and property has been destroyed. According to the cable dlsptaches

.after making due allowance for exaggeration caused by one motive or

another.these things have been done

through the exercise of the utmost

barbarity on each side. On one hand

Turkish troops have wantonly killed

women and children and deprived

them of food and shelter. On the

the revolutionists have murdered other

Moslem inhabitants and have pillaged

and destroyed their dwellings. Both

Revolutionists and troops, when they

have come in conflict, have fought to

kill, and the number of dead on both

sides, even reckoned from a

estimate, has long sinceconservative passed

the thousand mark.

There Is just as much reason for

saying that "a state of war" exists in

Macedonia as there was for saying

that it existed in Cuba before the interventlon of the United States. But

the most significant thing about It is

that while the Turkish troops in Ma- , cedonia are far more active In carrying

on their campaign than were the

Spanish troops in Cuba, the resistance made in the Turkish vilayets is ( far more elaborate in design and is

pursued with many and varied resources, which were beyond the reach

of the Cubans.

Filibustering expeditions were
