Attack on the Kurdish Centre

Photograph of the Kurdish Centre’s damaged offices, showing a shattered doorway above and blown out windows below. On 2 February 2016, the offices of the Kurdish Centre in Sur Amed-Diyarbakir were attacked and raided. This took place during a time of national emergency in Turkey, when freedom of expression was critically compromised as Kurdish literary institutions and writers became targets of attack. This photograph was most likely taken by a member of the Kurdish Centre around that time.
