The Cemetery

The cemetery is in a bad condition. The cause was the Turkish intervention back in 1974. The Turkish Army damaged most Christian cemeteries like this one.
The Turkish intervention was the reaction of the "Bloody Christmas of 1963", the massacre of Turkish Cypriots by the police, and the change of the constitution what violated the Zurich-London contract and all following treaties.
