A Stunning look at the Christian Holocaust
An island boy nicknamed Breadcrumb grew up poor in an environment of extreme religious persecution. After the Christian genocide his father told him to go to America and, at age thirteen, he began his odyssey. Struggling through many difficult years in Turkey, he eventually got to America by serving his enemies. His is a story of courage, faith and perseverance. His is the tale of the modern immigrant.
Garrett, the National religious broadcasters convention sort of NRB Chronicles. We meet somebody beat people and now I get I'm sitting here with Christ. Anthony Christ right right but how fun is that an entity's book wow am I understanding what you just told me that the immigrant which is the name of the book actually came out years ago I wrote in 20 some years ago we had a tragedy in our family and I did it last year with my daughter. We thought the story of the Christian Holocaust should come out, you know, the odd thing is, I wonder around here and I talked all these people know about the that the driver forced me to try to get the story out so wow I'm sure. Absolutely. So your dear one.
Amanda just ran into somebody who does know about the Christian Holocaust so what is a Christian WELL if you want to bookmark the Christian Holocaust you go to the girls college. Donna turkey 1909, April 5 was actually a girls high school run by positive missionaries, a Catholic priest. That's where the slaughter start that 33,000 Christians slaughtered all the Christians home to Burke and all the Jewish and Muslim homes were left alone and that was what I called the beginning of the Holocaust. Then you go up to the Arminian slaughters the Syria play for Syria of about a million or billion have people 1950, 60, other bookmark is despairing of the seaport.
It's about September 10, 1922, which 400,000 slaughtered on the beach at the thing people realize were 21 warships in Allied warships.the beach and you know what they were doing while the slaughters were underway, they were playing music because politicians don't get involved. So why, what, why were those Christian so what was the motivation of this well in this Catholic I'm trying to understand your talking about Byzantium. The foundation of Christianity. The Byzantine Empire. The Orthodox faith over fate we have here take a faith that dates directly back to Andrew apostle at 32 A.D. slaughters. They lived under when the Ottomans took over 400 years earlier. They lived under discrimination, Genghis Khan, Attila the Hun, they were not able to make the Christian to Christians were raised Christian genocide of 19 aikido 919 22.
The population 1905 1/2 million 1922 was 400,000 or so rates that it was not the Ottomans. It was there Orthodox you have to read my book another trip this is not a story just about the Holocaust. The book is a story about two young but who left there I went home father. The immigrants father's that go to America about 14 years working through turkey, trying to get to America.
Ironically, by serving his enemy 1947.
He was picked by the ambassador to the butler serving your enemy came to America now is this interest rate related to this, it was my fault so you wrote this about your father all those years ago, correct, and then what happened after well after I finished writing 2001 and I will let me mention something to the people inside the back are both deceased.
One was his good friend who ended up being the Archbishop of North and South America for all the Orthodox and the other was the man who did Earl Hamberg Amanda Rodewald series. Both of those inside the back of this book for both dead now, but we also lost our son took the wind out of the story later. Last year, my daughter suggested government that I want my grand Astoria reject the book last year at college Hashemi again once it has 50 well it's a great paygrade government she's advance very quickly to talk rate Commerce Department so she's way up there and and she's obviously God's bluster with enzymes and she's like I want my bet because my granddad story is like and you're right I don't know.
I mean investors are centered on what the world as we had so many arguments about developing an argument picking but we got it done between you and I don't ask is, absolutely. I mean, it looks like a fairly thick book so you there's lots of information here and clearly you done your research and and know the history it's actually almost mind blowing.
We feel the people here.
They ought to know the history because of the auditor who did the last three and a bibliography back week. Try to explain for reference.
The source of some of the books are out of print order pulse my story see US ambassador to Turkey Holocaust also works white sugar both better but American diplomat watching turkey what was occurring, but we think we are right on that part of the story so your father was Turkish, Greek, Christian requested, as was the Archbishop that they went to Turkey. The self taught himself rights ended up with the pair policy actor Kristi Ballmer worked his way up to become a waiter and waited on to Bill Mustapha Ataturk. He was there Glendale ball meets after that, he was conscripted by the way, the president of Turkey to go into the work battalions for young Christian 43, they will read after the Holocaust, under the guise of World War II. Turkey was he survived that by serving his enemy in the house with apostates where they found that he could cook. They would bring them up to make deals more rush for the case back to the para Powells went to the Park Hotel.
One of his customers. Ambassador to America. He said I want you to compass my buckler so serving his enemy got to America with three great family came through after 14 years and obviously passed on that story to his son. So as she is clearly not only have the Archbishop to the Archbishop of the Americas nickname to breadcrumb and interviewed him and also wrote the prelude to the book. The inscription on the back cover when breadcrumb passed 1994 and we informed the Archbishop he stated there were children, child threads, all the laws I allow ourselves.
Obviously God put on your heart to do this richly then brought it back after tender time 20 years with your daughter.
Since God is with half of the people what what what what would you hope the fruit would be the people that are impacted by this well. The book is about immigrant what could be more topical today we have a border what's happening with, but it's about an old Southerners of measure up, how it was done back then, he did eventually scheduled Louis Armstrong Genesee got blood back pretty much understood have to leave to get true freedom, but when he left David like best like so they were helping him blaze at the parapet at the park at the place that though the rip goes to batching threats restaurants in Washington worry worry waited on Jack like to start this biggest temper was Groucho Marx got the biggest tip you have received and so as he was going through this blaze helped him to become a citizen. Dennis papers what to night school start English who took it for years that because he could purchase a certificate from Turkey that said he was in good standing. They were concerned about that. The fact that a very.the fact that had a baby.
He had a hard time proving he was very good and we had a hard time getting through citizenship that he was a great extent. So, tells the story of an older immigrant what the nation help to remember. Parallel is the screenplay when Jimmy goes with Martin Luther King Selma markets across the bridge right spread come from it says in the letter nobody knows discrimination persecution like us close is another very big opening today which is the racial issue. The diversity woke crown what's going on out there today puts it into perspective, a different perspective. So both of those. The old story. Both of those things I think speak.so absolutely beautiful, absolutely.
And today I am so it's on Amazon under Anthony Seachrist immigrant on Amazon by Anthony Seachrist. Blood started and I thank you. I am glad that you says Anthony Christ, but it Seachrist well at Crist great wealth as a Christmas about the areas okay so shows what I know many Christians like Christ. But it's Crist was short great day and actually when we were younger we used to get calls on New Year's and I don't know which is worse.
Chris lost both the book is called again the immigrant Anthony God bless you. I'm so grateful for you Sharon. I hope I hope successful route because God will make it happen. Thank you so much Bobby. Thanks
