Cyprus Map
On the 20th July 1974, Turkey launched a massive military invasion against Cyprus, a predominantly Greek independant island state of the Eastern Mediteranean. By the 18th August 1974, the Turkish invasion forces had occupied 37% of the island's territory and proceeded to ethnically cleanse the areas under its military control of its Greek population.

In total, over 160.000 Greeks from over 150 towns and communities, who made up the overwhelming majority of the population of the Turkish occupied areas and one third of the total island's population, were forced to leave their homes and have since been prevented by the illegal occupation regime from returning there.

This site is a guide to these displaced communities. Select one of the four occupied regions to begin your journey.
