The contribution of Albanians

URL:

The big migration wave from Albania in the 1990s revitalized almost all professions and remains a decisive factor in the country’s economic development. Greece gained capable blue-collar workers and laborers who, with their dedication and hard work, continue to contribute to the country and create wealth.

The contribution of Albanians and ethnic Greeks from Albania to the Greek economy is indisputable. The big migration wave of the 1990s revitalized almost all professions and remains a decisive factor in the country’s economic development. Greece gained capable blue-collar workers and laborers who, with their dedication and hard work, continue to contribute to the country and create wealth.

Today, the children of those migrants not only speak excellent Greek, but are excelling in education, growing up in a country that they now consider their own, and contributing to the development of the arts, sciences and entrepreneurship (even if examples of unequal treatment and unacceptable difficulties in obtaining citizenship still persist).

The fears in the 1990s that the country’s cultural makeup would change were baseless. Let us remember that a great number of Albanian and Slavic people have migrated to Greek lands over the last few centuries and the descendants of many of them are now indistinguishable from the rest of the population. After all, what Greek or Englishman can say that he knows who his ancestors were 1,000 years ago? Even the United Kingdom’s Queen Elizabeth II is of German descent.

Greece, with its culture, geography, language, climate, history and religion, has created Greeks for millennia, whatever their place of birth.

Consequently, the new migrants who arrive in Greece also carry the promise of a significant contribution to Greece. This does not mean, however, that society has unlimited possibilities to develop social interactions with (the word “assimilate” is tasteless and racist) the “foreigner.”

People who come to our country should be treated well, but Greece cannot continue to take in so many arrivals. The increase in the number of refugees and migrants reaching Greece is driven by anti-Western forces that want to destabilize Europe.

Turkey allows the smuggling boats to sail from its shores, which it controls completely, as a means of pressure. This is aimed at making migration an issue of bilateral negotiation with Athens.

In other words, immigration certainly strengthens Greece in a variety of ways, as the Albanians and ethnic Greeks from Albania have clearly shown, but the large numbers of migrant arrivals, which is the result of secret plans to destabilize Europe, must be controlled by the mobilization of the European Union and NATO.

On this map we see which coastal areas Venetians held in Greece, marked in blue and purple. There was likely a 'significant influx' of Venetian and other colonists in these regions.

Great post Carlin. It is interesting that it was (is?) customary when writing in Greek to add Greek word endings to names, even first names. The beauty of (some of) the names identified in the list is that they obviously belong to languages other than Greek.

Thanks Dove.



Galaxidi or Galaxeidi, is a town and a former municipality in the southern part of Phocis. According to Edward Dodwell, year 1819: The Galaxidiote women all wear the Arnaut costume.

A letter from Almira/Almyros (southern Thessaly), near the town of Ypati, addressed to the famous Alexandar Exarch in Constantinople, dated September 1850 by the peasant Kalina Stoiku.

The letter was written in Greek. In this letter, Kalina Stoiku pleads for her son, Konstantin Stoiku, to be released from the Constantinople prison where he was sent, slandered, that he was allegedly a robber. The letter, in addition to the signature of Kalina Stoiku, also carries signatures of several other leading figures from the same village, with the following names: Mito, Nechko, Licho, Lalo, Dimo and others.

Pages 93-94:

- "The Arabs and Venetians, too, have been assimilated by the aboriginal Cretans; but there still exist a considerable number of Albanians, the descendants of soldiers, who have retained their language and customs."
- "All Cretans, with the exception of the Albanians, speak Greek..."

Burtzovlachs = Thessalian Vlachs

The earlier known references to the Vlach language date from the VI century (Wace & Thomson, 1989:2). In the Middle Ages, Vlachs established their own states in Great Vallachia (in Thessaly and Southern Macedonia) and Little Vallachia (in Etolia-Akarnania and Southern Epirus), in the XI and XII centuries (Dahmen, 1994:3; Berard, 1987:296); later on, they formed the basis of and provided the rulers to the ‘Second Bulgarian Kingdom’ or ‘Kingdom of Vlachs and Bulgarians’ (1185-1260), which at one point incorporated Great Vallachia. The latter survived the kingdom’s collapse as an autonomous area through the XIV century; then, and for some four centuries, little is known about the Vlachs who, as Orthodox Christians, belonged to the Greek-dominated Orthodox millet (= nationality) in the Ottoman Empire. Modern Vlachs are sometimes called Kutzovlachs (= Vlachs from Little Vallachia) or Burtzovlachs (= Vlachs from Great Vallachia), terms which have acquired demeaning connotations (Papathanasiou, 1991:25; Lazarou, 1986:62).

Thanks tchaiku. Is this "The Avar Invasion of Corinth" by G. R. Davidson (and Tibor Horvath)?
