Anti-Hellenism is the suspicion of, hatred towards, or discrimination against Greeks, individually or as a group, attributed to their ethnic Hellenic Religion or Greek Heritage. It is also sometimes attributed to jealously and envy towards the many accomplishments of Hellenic Civilization. 

Extreme instances of persecution include Anti-Greeks riots of Omaha in 1909, the Anti-Greeks riots of Toronto in 1918, the Soviet pogroms referred to as the ‘Greek Operation’ from 1937 to 1950, the Constantinople Pogrom of 1955, and the Ottoman Greek Genocide perpetrated by the Young Turk Government of the Ottoman Empire and the Kemalist Government of the Republic of Turkey from 1914 to 1923.
