  Vlachs - LoveToKnow 1911
The Vlach (Vlakh, Wallach) or Ruman race constitutes a distinct division of the Latin family of peoples, Distriba- widely disseminated throughout south-eastern Europe, tion of both north and south of the Danube, and extending the Vlach sporadically from the Russian river Bug to the race.
The centre of gravity of the Vlach or Ruman race is at present unquestionably north of the Danube in the almost circular territory between the Danube, Theiss and Dniester; Its and corresponds roughly with the Roman province original of Dacia, formed by Trajan in A.D. From this home.
The Vlachs of Pindus, and the southern region generally, were, on this hypothesis, to be regarded as later immigrants from the lands north of the Danube.

 NL27_3: Vlachs
Vlachs are generally assumed to be the Romanized descendants of autochthonous tribes, the Illyrians, Thracians, Dacians and Greeks.
In the latter half of the 20th century the numbers of Vlachs were widely considered to be declining sharply, either as a result of stringent nationality policies in various countries, or through the dynamics of urbanization, emigration and education.
By the same token, Vlach was and remains basically a spoken language, with considerable variations and divergences of dialect between north and south, and east and west.

Without a doubt, the Vlachs are one of the fundamental vehicles of the Balkan dimension of modern Greece, a dimension which is sometimes disregarded and sometimes extolled.
Romanian propaganda failed to gain a foothold among the Vlachs of Eastern Macedonia, for instance, whether settled or nomadic, the reason being that the local communities all recognised the Vlachs as fundamentally modern Greeks.
The movement failed likewise in the Vlach villages on Olympos, where neither the notables nor the ordinary folk felt themselves to be any different from the Greki in terms of their modern Greek identity.

 [alst-l] From Greek Helsinki Monitor
In the post-war era, Vlachs felt they had to be extremely careful, as the two secessionist attempts (in the turn of the century and in the 1940s) made Greece suspicious of a distinct Vlach ethnic identity: hence, Vlach assimilation was extensive and usually ‘voluntary’, i.e.
Today, Vlach ethnic identity is perceived by many members of the community as distinct from that of the other Greeks who have Greek as their mother tongue (called ‘Grecos’ in Aromanian) but as fully compatible with Greek national identity (likewise for many Arvanites and Macedonians).
All Vlach speakers are fluent in Greek; in fact, the use of Vlach is being subordinated to the use of Greek especially among the younger generations.

Vlachs (also called Wallachians, Wlachs, Wallachs, Olahs or Ulahs) is a blanket term covering several modern Latin peoples descending from the Latinised population in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe.
The Vlach languages have a common origin from the Proto-Romanian language, and the Vlachs themselves originally descend from Roman colonists (from various provinces of the Roman Empire) and Romanised indigenous populations (Dacians, Thracians, and/or Illyrians).
In the 10th Century, the Hungarians arrived in the Pannonian plain, and, according to the Gesta Hungarorum written by an anonymous chancellor of King Bela III of Hungary, the plain was inhabited by Slavs, Bulgars, Vlachs and pastores Romanurum (Roman shepherds).

 Vlachs - Article from FactBug.org - the fast Wikipedia mirror site
Vlachs (also called Wlachs, Wallachs, Olahs) are the Romanized population in Central and Eastern Europe, including Romanians, Aromanians, Istro-Romanians and Megleno-Romanians, but since the creation of the Romanian state, this term was mostly used for the Vlachs living south of the Danube river.
This explains the pockets of Vlachs that could be found all over the Balkans and as far north as Poland and as far west the Czech Republic, and Croatia.
The religion of the Vlachs is predominantly Eastern Orthodox Christianity, but there are some regions where they are Catholics and Protestants (in Transylvania) and a few are even Muslims (former converts from Greece, living in Turkey since the 1923 exchange of populations).

Aromanians (also called: Macedo-Romanians in Romania or Vlachs in most other countries; in Aromanian they call themselves arumâni, armâni or aromâni) are a people living throughout the southern Balkans, especially in northern Greece, Albania, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Serbia, and Bulgaria; their number is estimated at about one or two million.
Vlachs was a term used in the Medieval Balkans, as an exonym for all the Romanic people, but nowadays, it is commonly used only for the Aromanians and Meglenites, the Romanians being named Vlachs only in historical context.
There is currently no education in their native language, but unlike in Greece, the Vlachs are a recognised national minority in the Albanian constitution, despite the Greek view that the Vlachs of Albania form part of the wider Greek minority.

 NL14_6: From the Editor
Since the Vlachs represent the main Greek claim to both of these regions, which host more Vlachs than Greeks, it once again became necessary to argue that the Vlachs are actually Greeks.
By counting the Vlachs as Greeks, Greece ends up with a sizable minority in Albania, so the strategy of Albanian nationalists is first to pretend that the Vlachs do not exist (i.e., that they are regular ethnic Albanians).
We have to make some decisions about our identity; either we Vlachs are a unique ethnic group, and our language and culture are worth saving, or we are members of some other ethnic group (Romanian, Greek, or what have you), in which case the thing to save is Romanian or Greek language and culture.

They are the second most populous group of Vlachs, behind modern-day Romanians (though today, the word 'Vlach' refers only to the Latin-speaking people south of the Danube).
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 Aromanians, under the name "Vlachs", are a recognised national minority in the Albanian constitution.

 Kosovo, Origins: Serbs, Albanians and Vlachs - Noel Malcolm
As this name suggests, the Vlachs are closely linked to the Romanians: their two languages (which, with a little practice, are mutually intelligible) diverged only in the ninth or tenth century.
While the origins of the Vlachs are obscure enough, the origins of the Albanians have been the subject of a much more bewildering mass of conflicting claims and theories.
One large group of Vlachs seems to have broken away and moved southwards by the ninth or tenth century; the proto-Romanians stayed in contact with Albanians significantly longer, before drifting north-eastwards, and crossing the Danube in the twelfth century.

Similarly, neither the report nor the written replies to the list of issues indicated whether there was one body responsible for coordinating policies for children across different sectors.
Such a project could play an important role in disseminating the principles and provisions of the Convention to children and teachers in schools, which were the main vehicles for increasing awareness of the Convention.

The paper lists eight "changes" which "must be made immediately if Macedonia is to prevent a wider war".
This passage may rightly be criticized as excessively nationalistic; it is the excess of a numerically small nationality that has been officially recognized for little over half a century and thus feels the need to assert itself.
While Macedonian is the official state language (Article 7), the nationalities may use their own language in local affairs where they constitute a majority or "a considerable number" of the inhabitants.

One element within each chapter, and one of the strengths of the work, is that when Malcolm presents an idea or a concept, such as the arrivals of Vlachs, he then ties it into the current conflict as a way of making historical fact immediate to today's situation.
In this way, the reader is given the historical knowledge necessary to consider the claims and counter claims of each side in the Bosnian war.
For those who study this area of history, the work provides and excellent grounding in the political and social history of Bosnia, and give the information needed for a better understanding of what is a complex and sorrowful war.
