During the 2nd Balkan War (1913), the town of Doxato, just south-east of Drama in Macedonia, was the scene of horrific acts of murder, violence and vandalism, committed by the Bulgarians against Greek civilians.

Bulgarian komitatzides, entered the town, occupied and preceded to slaughter 650 Greek civilians, which was roughly 1/3 of the town’s population at the time.

The Bulgarians then looted everywhere in the town that they could, before setting fire to Doxato, including homes, churches, shops and other businesses.
