What I can see

It is a cultural association of the Pontic Greeks, i.e. the Black Sea Greeks from the regions of Pontus (today’s northern Turkiye) and the Caucasus, most of who were pogromed during the Greek-Turkish war (1919-1922). Those who survived came as refugees to Greece, mainly after the exchange of populations imposed by the Treaty of Lausanne (1923). The aim of the association is to save the customs, the language and overall the cultural heritage of Pontus, as well as the cultural development of its members. It has rich cultural activity and also has Pontic theatre and dance departments.

What I can't see

The Thessaloniki Black Sea Club grants scholarships at various educational levels. Lastly, it seeks the international recognition of the already politically adopted status of Greece for the Pontian Genocide during the war between the two countries.
