    There are not only churches and orthodox living in Ohrid . This is only one-side reportage of Ohrid, It's very unilateral, made with a very very bad intention. Where are the mosques, where are other nationalities living in Ohrid. Where are other religions living in Ohrid . Have you been paid well to make such e video ???

    Extreme Macedonian nationalists, who are concerned with demonstrating the continuity between ancient and modern Macedonians, deny that they are Slavs and claim to be the direct descendants of Alexander the Great and the ancient Macedonians. The more moderate Macedonian position, generally adopted by better educated Macedonians and publicly endorsed by Kiro Gligorov, the first president of the newly independent Republic of Macedonia, is that modern Macedonians have no relation to Alexander the Great, but are a Slavic people whose ancestors arrived in Macedonia in the sixth century AD".

    (Loring M. Danforth Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Bates College, Lewiston, Maine)

    "The Macedonian people and their kings were of Greek stock, as their traditions and the remains of their language combine to testify."

    [John Bagnell Bury, "A History of Greece to the Death of Alexander the Great", 2nd ed. (1913)]

    "That the Macedonians and their kings did in fact speak a dialect of Greek and bore Greek names may be regarded nowadays as certain."

    [Malcom Errington, "A History of Macedonia"]

    "And yet if we take into account the political conditions, religion and morals of the Macedonians, our conviction is strengthened that they were a Greek race and akin to the Dorians."

    [Ulrich Wilcken, "Alexander the Great", (1967)]

    "Nowadays historians generally agree that the Macedonians form part of the Greek ethnos; hence they also shared in the common religious and cultural features of the Hellenic world."

    [M.Oppermann, "Oxford Classical Dictionary", 3rd ed. (1996), p.905]

    "Hesiod first mentioned 'Makedon', the eponym of the people and the country, as a son of Zeus, a grandson of Deukalion, and so a first cousin of Aeolus, Dorus, and Xuthus; in other words he considered the 'Makedones' to be an outlying branch of the Greek-speaking tribes, with a distinctive dialect of their own, 'Macedonian'."

    [N.G.L.Hammond, "Oxford Classical Dictionary", 3rd ed. (1996), pp.904,905]

    "All in all, the language of the Macedones was a distinct and particular form of Greek, resistant to outside influnces and conservative in pronunciation. It remained so until the fourth century when it was almost totally submerged by the flood tide of standardized Greek."

    [Hammond and Griffith, "A History of Macedonia" Vol ii, 550-336 BC.]

    "I shall not indulge in a lecture on the ancient identity of the Macedonians and on Philip II of Macedon and Alexander the Great, but the Greeks were historically correct in the campaign that they launched in the early days of the dispute…
    "Nor shall I engage in a lecture on the falsification of the history of Slavo-Macedonia since 1944, although that, too, has much hard factual content. I simply remind the House that Tito's renaming of Vardar Banovina as the Republic of Macedonia in 1944 was a political statement. More than that, it was a territorial claim. It laid claim to territory in Greece and in Bulgaria. Notably, the objective was the warm water port of Salonika on the Aegean."

    [Mr. Edward O'Hara of the British Parliament]

    "The feeling of being Macedonians, and nothing but Macedonians, seems to be a sentiment of fairly recent growth, and even today is not very deep-rooted."

    [Elisabeth Barker, "Macedonia, its place in Balkan power politics",
    (originally published in 1950 by the Royal Institute of International Affairs), p.10]

    ."The Department has noted with considerable apprehension increasing propaganda rumors and semi-official statements in favor of an autonomous Macedonia, emanating principally from Bulgaria, but also from Yugoslav Partisan and other sources, with the implication that Greek territory would be included in the projected state. "This Government considers talk of Macedonian "nation', Macedonian "Fatherland", or Macedonian "national consciousness" to be unjustified demagoguery representing no ethnic nor political reality, and sees in its present revival a possible cloak for aggressive intentions against Greece"."
    [The Secretary of State, Edward Stettinius, to Certain Diplomatic and Consular Officers, U.S. State Department, Foreign Relations Vol. VIII, Circular Airgram (868.014 / 26 Dec. 1944)]

    We were Macedonians! We are Macedonians! We will remain Macedonians! Macedonians for ever!
    Macedonia is Macedonian, Greece is Spartan, Athenian and Cretan… Feel sorry for all the uneducated people and for those who think that Macedonia is Greek! So sad 🙁
