The house was lived in by Dr Nihat Ilhan and his family. He was assigned to the regiment sent by the Turkish army as part of the guarantee agreement made when the new Cyprus Republic was established in 1960. On 24th December 1963, while Dr Nihat Ilhan was on duty, his wife, his three children, Kutsi, Tecer, and Hakan along with the house owner Hasan Gudum's wife, Ferida Gudum were killed by the Greek Cypriots. Following the barbaric act of murder the house was turned into a museum to commemorate the martyred with photos exhibited showing the scene of crime.
