As soon as you get in, it reverberates sadness especially when i saw the clothes of the victims and seeing the bathroom where they died and reading the narration of a survivor. It gave me goosebumps and a creepy feeling.

You need to see here to see what the barbarism is. It shows you some real evidence about real history of being savage and killing innocent people... it may be a little disturbing for sensitive souls

The museum is small and not suitable for sensitive people or kids. I really like it and the funniest part for me is that both sides, Greek and Turkish part of Nicosia have one of this museum. They basically accusing each others of barbarism!

I wish there is no need for this type of museums in the world however we humans follow ideologies blindly and kill each other for the sake of belief. It is sad to see human barbarism in this century
