|Salesi in 1901 - Junior Journal - Minneapoli|
The Junior Journal - Minneapolis on August 31, 1901 reported that a teacher in the village of Salesi discovered that his students did not understand a single word in Greek language.
Happened in 1901, when an important newspaper in the US, reported that in a place just 12 miles (19:31 km) away from Athens, no one knew a single word in Greek language.At this article the correspondent of The Journal Junior - Minneapolis, reports that in the village of Salesi, no one from the village pupils knew any Greek words, they spoke only Albanian. For the residents of this village the Greek language is considered as a foreign language.
This was the Reality in many areas of Greece, in 1900.
We remind that many historians clam that after constitution of the first democratic Greek Parliament, after the independence from Ottomans, for just one vote, the official language of Greece would be today the Albanian./Oculus News
