Prof. Dr. Ali Efdal Ozkul: “A Significant Activity from the Cyprus Turkish National History Museum…”
Underlining NEU’s commitment to continuing to open new horizons for our people and conveying our historical heritage, cultural values and artistic accumulations to next generations, the Dean of Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the Founding Chairman of the Board of the Cyprus Turkish National History Museum, Professor Ali Efdal Ozkul stated that Turkish Cypriot People shed their sweat and tears to give life to these lands on which they had been struggling for existence for 445 years. “In order to commemorate Dr. Fazıl Küçük on his 35th death anniversary and underline the importance of the struggle for existence and freedom and the crucial role of leaders in this struggle, we organized the exhibition titled “Dr. Fazıl Küçük and National Struggle” said he.

“Our ancestors had strived for existence and freedom on these lands for years. To convey this legendary national struggle to next generations takes place among the greatest missions of the Cyprus Turkish National History Museum” noted he.

Expressing that Cyprus Turkish National History Museum, which is an important cornerstone registering the existence of Turkish Cypriot people, had been brought into a being via Founding Rector Dr. Suat İ. Günsel’s foresight and vision, Professor Özkul indicated that the museum would open its doors for the visitors in 2020. “The museum will have a crucial task in shedding light on the past and history of Turkish Cypriots and providing information concerning our struggle to exist and to take roots on the island. The young generation needs to know their past and history well before setting out to explore the future. The National History Museum, which will be a place where the history of Turkish Cypriots comes alive, will reflect Turkish Cypriot people’s struggle for existence and freedom by using the most contemporary audio-visual devices. Within the structure of the museum, all tools, materials, documents, traditional clothes and social surroundings reflecting the characteristics of their time will be exhibited thematically and chronologically. In this context, our young people as well as visitors will have the opportunity to experience and figure out the past as if they were living in that period of history. It will be a living museum, which will continuously enhance its core collection and provide all information regarding the history of Turkish Cypriots through presentations and animations in an interactive, digital and audio-visual environment. The Cyprus Turkish National History Museum organized the “Dr. Fazıl Küçük and National Struggle” exhibition to make the existence of Turkish Cypriots better known across the world. Within this frame, the exhibition features artworks created by our country’s talented artists. Paintings, sculptures, ceramics, photographs reflecting Dr. Fazıl Küçük and the years of national struggle and the objects specific to those years will be the core collection of the exhibition. The exhibition will also be held in Turkic countries later and this will provide opportunity for us to make not only the Turkish Cypriots struggle for existence but also the Turkish Cypriot identity better understood across the world” said he.

Underlining that opening the exhibition in 14 Turkic countries was of importance in terms of making our country’s artists known in those countries, Professor Ozkul stated that the friendship that established via bonds of love with the Turkic World would be strengthened through arts.
