Krste Petkov Misirkov In commemoration of the 135 anniversary of the birth of the great Macedonian intellectual, Krste Petkov Misirkov, the Edessa/Voden office of the European Free Alliance Rainbow, the political party of the Macedonian minority of Greece, is pleased to announce the formation of a foundation in his name.

The main aims and goals of the Krste Petkov Misirkov Foundation will be to:

Raise awareness among the ethnic Macedonian population in Greece about the life and writings of Misirkov.
Organise lectures, seminars and conferences on the life and works of Misirkov.
Translate into Greek and publish all his writings.
Establish a museum and educational centre in Misirkovs honour.
Support associations in Greece which promote Macedonian culture.
Support efforts to preserve and promote the Macedonian language in Greece.

The forming of the Krste Petkov Misirkov Foundation, just days after the opening of the Edessa/Voden office of the EFA Rainbow, shows the strong will of the large ethnic Macedonian population in Edessa/Voden and in the Region of Central Macedonia, to struggle for their ethnic, cultural and political rights in Greece.

Krste Petkov Misirkov was born 18 November 1874 in the village of Pella/Postol, Ottoman Empire (located today in the Region of Central Macedonia, Greece). He was a philologist, reformer of the standard Macedonian language, historian, ethnographer, publicist, author of the first book and magazine on standard Macedonian language. Misirkovs most famous piece of work was the book On Macedonian Matters published in 1903.
