WHY AND HOW WE STARTED
documents which have been found, such as trial decisions, old
newspaper material, testimonies from people working in the orphanage
of Sant Stylianos and hospitals of Thessaloniki, testimonies
of birthparent whose children were inexcusable vanished from
the national institutions, plus hundreds of false certificates
guided us to the knowledge of an unbelievable case. All these
documents are in the disposal of our association and can be
showed to everyone who wishes to see them. There are all the
documents of the trial in 1964.
Mr. Skopas, a Greek - American, ex mayor and judge of New York
City, had been cough in the states dealing with black baby market
from Greece to the United States. That had happened in 1962
in New York City. It was a very fortunate event for the apocalypses
of those crimes because it guided to the main links that were
people from Greece.
The investigations that were made after that reached to Dimitrios
Papadopoulos and his accessories and placed them to trial. For
two years all the newspapers in Greece were writing about this
trial. The trial lasted two years. Doctors, nurses, personnel
from the orphanage, the director himself and the secretary were
involved in that case and had been judged in that trial. When
the trial was finished all of them escaped with very little
penalties! The decisions of the court were three years only
for Dim. Papadopoulos, nearly one year for the doctor Pistofidis
and the rest had been declared "innocents" since Papadopoulos
took all responsibility for himself!
No stolen babies were found that time. Not a single mother
took her baby back home. Nobody took any notice for the false
certificates of death. No one realized or understood that most
of the children of the orphanage had two registration forms
in the orphanage's registration book, one real and one false.
A remarkable scientific crime had been accomplished. Themes,
the goddess of justice, once more remained blind and deaf, to
see and to listen to the despaired voices and the mourning of
the mothers whose children, without any cause and excuse, had
been separated from them for ever.
This is our history and unfortunately we can not do much to
change it. However, we can not ignore it either. We have to
face the fact that we simply were the victims of a very shady
period, of absolute violation and ignorance of the human rights
is why we, the black market babies, search for our past. We
have every right and every cause to do it. We have the supreme
responsibility and obligation towards our biological parents
who may still be seeking for us. We feel responsible towards
God and all people who gave us their confidence and trust and
towards the humanity to fight for our Holly purpose.
This purpose is to help the illegally adopted children and
their birthparents to be reunited again before it is too late.
We must keep in mind that there is not much time left for the
biological parents, so we have to fight firstly with the time.
As we try to find those people we need all the support we can
get, we need lots of friends, we need, therefore, any useful
information from people all over the world. No one who knows
must remain in silence! Be activated! Please join us! There
is a purpose; there is a good reason and a Holly cause. The
adopted Greeks without their parents consent will, highly appreciate
your effort and tries! We all wish to put an end to our agony
and our drama. May God be with us all, because we are seeking
only for the truth and the justice!
God bless you
