1940 | People and Images - Cyprus - Greece

World War II has been the deadliest conflict in human history, the “point zero” of European and global civilization. Dozens of nations engaged in combat, millions of people were killed, civilians as well as soldiers, and the largest part of Europe suffered incalculable damage. The map of the Old Continent was redrawn.

The Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation and the Embassy of Greece organize for the first time in Cyprus the exhibition “1940 | People and Images. Cyprus - Greece”. The exhibition presents primary evidence drawn from historical research into the World War II period, including the participation of Cyprus and Cypriot volunteers in the fight against the Axis powers as well as significant aspects of the Greek people’s resistance.
