As a result of the wave of emigration in the 1960’s many Pontian Greeks arrive in the Federal Republic of Germany as “guest workers” (“Gastarbeiter”). Sensing the need to preserve the culture, the tradition, the habits and customs of their land, workers and students found a club. A predominant figure, pulling the strings towards the foundation and acknowledgement of the club, is Pericles Ioannou, a Professor of Greek Literature at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich. The Constituent Assembly of the “Club of Greek Pontians in Munich and its Suburbs” (“Club der Griechen aus Pontos in München und Umgebung”) takes place at the home of the student of Dentistry at that time, Stathis Haitidis, on the 15th of December 1965.
