Description

Beneath the Carob Trees chronicles the efforts and pays tribute to all those who labour to end the suffering of the bereaved and to support reconciliation between the communities in Cyprus.

Since 1981 the Committee on Missing Persons has worked to tackle an enduring humanitarian tragedy in Cyprus.

Over the last decade, it has undertaken more than a thousand excavations and exhumations across the island, recovering and identifying the men, women, and children who went missing forty or fifty years ago, and returning their remains to their families.

This extraordinary bi-communal work has been carried out by a new generation of Cypriots determined to heal the wounds left open by their fathers and grandfathers.

Beneath the Carob Trees chronicles their efforts and pays tribute to all those who labour to end the suffering of the bereaved and to support reconciliation between the communities.
