A picture of Cyprus

Relationship: Child of im/migrant

My family immigrated from Cyprus in the 1960s and arrived through a permanent residency process. From there multiple parts of my family left the island in seek of a better life and job opportunities. However, prior to the split of the island from the 1960s many Turkish Cypriots had been discriminated against and oppressed. Therefore leaving the island was the best option.
