 History of Aromanians - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Aromanians can be found in Greece, Bulgaria, Albania and the Republic of Macedonia, while Romanians in Romania, Moldova, Ukraine, Serbia and Hungary.
Their occupations were mostly trading, shepherding and craftsmanship, but judging from the variety of ancient vocabulary related to agriculture we can assume that in the Roman period they were mostly farmers.
In the 18th century, as many of the Vlachs became involved in the trade between the Occident and Orient, their main city, Moscopole, became one of the most important and prosperous cities of the Balkans, until it was sacked and pillaged by the Ottomans in 1788.

Aromanian activists in Bitola estimate an Aromanian population of between 10,000 and 15,000 in that city, although the 1994 census of Macedonia lists only 8,462 "Vlachs" (a term which in Macedonia is synonymous with Aromanians) in the entire country.
For Aromanians, Communism was not merely a political program involving the nationalization of major capitalist enterprises; it was a way in which the majorities in the country could eliminate the material basis of their identity and status, regardless of whether this had been built on trade in the towns or on a rural pastoral existence.
Aromanians who are self-assertive in their "Vlach" identity in Bitola often claim that the suppression of Vlach identity as a policy is often accomplished with the help of others who themselves have Aromanian forebears.

Aromanians (also called: ´´Arumanians´´ or ´´Macedo-Romanians´´; in Aromanian they call themselves ´´arumâni´´, ´´armâni´´, ´´rămăni´´ or ´´aromâni´´) are a people living throughout the southern Balkans, especially in northern Greece, Albania, and the Republic of Macedonia, and as an emigrant community in Romania (Dobruja).
The pressure on Aromanians to assimilate can be traced back to the 18th century, when assimilation efforts were encouraged by the Greek missionary Kosmas Aitolos (1714-1779) who taught that Aromanians should speak Greek because as he said ´´"it´s the language of our Church"´´ and established over 100 Greek schools in northern and western Greece.
The European Parliamentary Assembly examined a report on the Aromanians in 1997, and adopted a recommendation that the Greek government should do whatever is necessary to respect their culture and facilitate education in Aromanian and its use in schools, churches and the media.
