Women who were destined to live at the hands of the Turks a different death that executed their souls. They lived through excruciating moments, the wounds of which will forever remain unhealed. Children who saw their parents killed in front of their eyes. They were forced to grow up and what they wanted was support and love in the difficult years after the invasion.”

    We are here, he continued, “to honor those women who succeeded with their action, struggle and self-sacrifice to contribute to the struggle for justice and freedom. Those women for whom time may have frozen in 1974, half a century ago, but with their stubbornness, courage and strength of soul they managed to make even the most powerful bow before them. Those women who looked into the eyes of the conquerors, who were not afraid, who did not bend”.
