Diyarbakır’s Memory is online

The Diyarbakır’s Memory website prepared in order to record, preserve and promulgate Diyarbakır’s history accumulated over the ages is now online.

Diyarbakır’s Memory was developed as part of the project by the same name conducted by Anadolu Kültür in partnership with the Diyarbakır Association for the Protection of Cultural and Natural Assets. In the website, the tangible and intangible cultural values, multicultural character and history of Diyarbakır, which have remained in existence on its original site for six thousand years without interruption, shall be treated in light of various chosen themes. In this first version of the website, there are five exhibitions entitled “A city at the crossroads of history”, “Maps: from Amida to Caramit”, “History as recorded by travellers”, “Diyarbakır as told in coins” and “A parenthesis in history: the Marwanids”.

Your participation is vital to creating a platform that truly compiles information and documents on Diyarbakır, brings these to the attention of scholars and those interested, keeps memory fresh for future generations, and breathes life into the profound history and culture of the city. You may reach us via [email protected] in order to share such documents about the city’s history, culture and architecture kept in private collections.

The Diyarbakır’s Memory project is realized with the support of Gerda Henkel Stiftung and Chrest Foundation.
