Boatmen of Thessaloníki

The Boatmen of Thessaloníki (Macedonian: Гемиџии), were a revolutionary group active in the Ottoman Empire in the years around 1900 in Thessaloníki. They all were graduates from the Men's High School of Thessaloniki, and from 28 April until 1 May 1903 they launched a campaign of terror bombing in Thessaloniki, the so called "Thessaloniki bombings of 1903". Their aim was to attract the attention of the Great Powers to Ottoman oppression in Macedonia and Thrace.
