This book attempts to illuminate, somewhat, the History of Hellenism in the neighboring Republic of Skopje, which is suffering the consequences of the Third Phase of the Macedonian Question - which, in the Authors opinion, is darker the previous First Phase (1870-1912) and Second Phase (1912-1939). Research will continue and information will constantly improve, until the real nature of Slavism and its designs on Hellenism are revealed, because the Author’s firm belief is that Greeks and Slavs, being Orthodox Christians can live in harmony without incident, building an enviable peace in the Greek peninsula and a springboard for many accomplishments.
