Ibrahim Yaylali was a nationalist Turk who discovered his Greek roots and made a 180-degree turn, becoming an activist for human rights.

Within years, the Greek from Pontus became “a symbol of the struggle for the recognition of crimes against Greeks and other peoples,” as characterized by Greek lector and author Theofanis Malkidis.

The fascinating story of the Turk from Pontus begins in April 1994 when he was enlisted in the Turkish army as a sniper and was sent to fight against the PKK fighters of Kurdistan.
