Hellenic Parliament Genocide Recognition: Law 2193/1994

In 1994, the Hellenic Parliament passed Law 2193/1994 which designated May 19 as a "day of remembrance for the genocide of the Greeks of Pontus."

It's worth noting that in 1998 the Hellenic Parliament passed Law 2645/1998 which inaugurated September 14 as a day of national mourning for the genocide of all Greeks throughout the entire region of Asia Minor (including Pontus) which in effect was an amendment to the 1994 decision. Hellenic Parliament 2193 1994
