Historical interview of Anatolian immigrants to Greece

These people were Greeks who lived in Anatolia (modern day Turkey) and were forced to immigrate to Greece as refugees. Their history is so important to modern Greek history, I hope it doesn't get lost.

The Greek language has its earliest roots in the Mycenaean civilization

Some of the earliest examples of where Greek can be traced to is the Mycenaean civilization. Once the Mycenaean civilization collapsed, parts of the Greek language disappeared. It was then replaced by writing inspired by the Phoenicians. After this during the Classical Period of Ancient Greece, the language developed into several dialects, one of which developed into a language that is very similar to the modern Greek that we know today.

The marathon started in Greece!

The famous marathon that we know of today started in Greece! The first marathon actually took place at the Battle of Marathon. The Greeks won because of Pheideppes who greatly affected the war. After the Greek army defeated the Persian army, the commander, Miltiades, told his messenger to send word to Athens that the Persians were headed their way. Pheideppes ran the distance between Marathon and Athens he delivered the message that the Persians were on their way. The marathon was born after his famous run!

The history of Oxi Day (October 28)

Oxi Day in Greek is the “Day of No”. The history behind it is that The Axis powers wanted to occupy Greece during World War II because of its strategic location. Mussolini gave the option for Greece to accept occupation instead of going straight to war. He gave Ioannis Metaxas an ultimatum. This is when Metaxas, the prime minister of Greece said "No" and decided that Greece would go to war to defend itself. This is why we celebrate Oxi Day to this day. :)
