This thesis examines the uprisings, wars, banditry, and the increasing number of refugees due to these problems, based on the news of Zaman newspaper published in Selanik between 1876 and 1880. In this period, the power of the Ottoman State in the Balkans was damaged and at the same time the influence of European states in the region increased. Russia is the most influential state in the uprisings in the Balkans. Especially with the 1877 – 78 Ottoman-Russian War, banditry news began to appear frequently in the newspaper. The Bulgarians persecuted the people living in that region. The Russians also supported these movements of the Bulgarians. The Muslim people had to migrate to the other regions in the Ottoman State. Selanik province is also among the places where refugees come. In this turmoil refugees faced many problems and struggled to survive.
