14 Different Relationships to the Land: Personal Narratives, Political Implications and Future Possibilities in Cyprus

Maria Hadjipavlou-Trigeorgis

"I come from Lefkara village and for some years lived at Kofinou village in the south. From 1963 until 1974 I felt like a second class citizen. I had an identity problem. I had no passport, and my whole adult life was affected by the lack of status I felt. I did not have the same opportunities as you (Greeks) did to continue and improve my education. I had no chance to participate in a democratic way of life. You have to take into account the 1963 till 74 period to understand what our past was like. We have to understand that in any future settlement. I now live in the north. . . .."

(Turkish Cypriot male participant)

"I have happy memories from my village, Karavas, which is now occupied, living there before the 1974 events with Turkish Cypriots. I remember a young Turkish Cypriot mailman on his motorcycle. I liked him very much. He would come by our neighborhood and put me on his motorcycle for a ride. It was so exciting. Later at the English School, in Nicosia, I had Turkish Cypriot classmates and with one of them I used to go out. I am angry that political realities do not let me communicate with him now. In the United States, as a student I met other Turkish Cypriot young women at the university and some of them had bitter feelings toward the Greeks. I was really confused. Back to divided Cyprus now, I often go for a walk along the "green line" in Nicosia, I see the Turkish flag and I feel insecure. I struggle with past memories and present realities. I can't forget 1974. "

(Greek Cypriot female participant)
