Kostur was a hotbed for Macedonian revolutionary activity over a century ago, not for over a century. I never claimed the people who died as revolutionaries weren’t interested in their culture. I am positive they knew of the existence of other large towns in Macedonia.

No one was brainwashed by the Greek education system either because if that were the case, they would not call themselves Macedonians.
My response was in relation to what you wrote about your family members, who you referred to in the present tense yet weren’t specific as to where they are currently located. You were also vague about their knowledge (or lack thereof) of Macedonian towns north of Bitola. I didn’t suggest they aren’t interested in their culture or history, I suggested that their interest is limited if they don’t know. It is an unfortunate occurrence for many people who are born or grow up in the diaspora. If, on the other hand, they are still living in Kostur and suffer from the same supposed ignorance, then clearly their interest is also limited or they’ve been brainwashed by the Greek education system. Your claim that nobody was affected in such a manner is patently false.

I feel you believe 19th century Macedonian peasants knew a lot more than they were realistically capable of knowing….….not every Macedonian peasant in the 1850s knew the exact geographic definition of Macedonia and all the towns it encompasses...
It’s not unrealistic to assume that people from a town in the south-west of Macedonia would be aware of the existence of other towns north of Bitola which are populated by people who share the same ancestry and culture. And there’s no need to alter your point so late in the discussion because I never claimed that every Macedonian peasant new the exact geography of Macedonia or every single town it encompasses.

Great. Thanks. Irrelevant.

Bit rich to just assume people in my region were brainwashed or have limited interest in their culture………..
I wasn’t trying to be offensive, I was merely responding to your statement as it was presented. Perhaps you should make more of an effort to be clinical when making a point, then you won't find my replies so rich.
