The article deals with the position of Pomaks - Slavic speaking Muslims - in Greece since 1919 when the region where Pomaks live was annected by Greece. Greece doesn't officially recognize Pomaks as an ethnic minority and Pomaks' cultural and religious rights are protected only by their membership in the Western Thrace Muslim Minority, consisting of Pomaks, Turks and Roma people. Despite that fact the Greek State attempted to create a specific Pomak policy in past, especially in years after the Cyprus Crisis of 1974. Appart from Pomaks-state relations, the position of Pomaks within the Muslim Minority is also analysed in the article, with special focus on the Greek Turks' turkifying campaign that seems to have succeeded in case of vast majority of Greek Pomaks.
