edit about the Byzantine Museum of Chios[edit]

This edit definitely contains claims relevant to the page, but the sources provided did not really back these claims. The second source provided NOTHING related to the matter, as the page is just a constantly changing webfeed. The first source also seemed to be a webfeed. By the time i got to it, it provided only crumbs of information; i will present them here:

ΕΛΕΥΘΕΡΗ ΩΡΑ της Κυριακής: "Ενοχλεί τους Τούρκους η "σφαγή της Χίου". Πήραν από το Βυζαντινό Μουσείο Χίου τον φημισμένο πίνακα του Ντελακρουά και τον πέταξαν σε αποθήκη να μην φαίνεται".

Η εφημερίδα γράφει ότι "ο ενδοτισμός απέναντι των Τούρκων σ΄αυτή τη χώρα, δεν έχει όρια. Για να μην τους κακοκαρδίσουμε και τους δημιουργήσουμε ψυχολογικά προβλήματα, διαγράφουμε ιστορικά γεγονότα, όπως η σφαγή 58.000 Χιωτών από τους Τούρκους. Μία απαίσια πράξη που συγκίνησε τότε τους απανταχού Φιλέλληνες και ανάγκασε τον φημισμένο Γάλλο ζωγράφο Ντελακρουά να απεικονίσει αυτή την "γενοκτονία".

which translates ( to...

FREE TIME Sunday: "Flag of the Turks' massacre of Chios." Taken from the Byzantine Museum of Chios by Eugene Delacroix famous table and threw in a warehouse not appear.

The newspaper writes that "endotismos against the Turks In this country, has no limits. To deny them kakokardisoume and create psychological problems, delete historical events such as the slaughter of 58,000 Turks Chians. A terrible act then moved Philhellenes everywhere and forced the famous French painter Delacroix to reflect this "genocide." >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Here is a load of news sources if anybody has time to do the spade work. I will edit the main page very soon if nobody else does:

Here are some relevant details:

The museum in question: Βυζαντινό Μουσείο Χίου, or "The Byzantine Museum of Chios"
A Greek translation of the painting's name: Η σφαγή της Χίου
A Greek translation of the painter's name: Ευγένιος Ντελακρουά
