Greek Church in Cemil
Cappadocia

The church of Cemil had been built just before the 2nd World War. In the time of people exchange between Turkey and Greece the Greek inhabitants of the village have been deported to Greece and Turks from Greece had to come here. While I was taking the photographs and old inhabitant of the village came to tell his story. He was born in Greece and had to leave his homeland with his family. When they arrived here, the didn't speak any Turkish and didn't know how to survive in this foreign country. - If you have any information about the church or the village etc., please contact the photographer - thank you!

    More About Cappadocia

    Cappadocia is a part of central Turkey. Eruptions of several volcanoes (e.g. Erciyes Dag, Hasan Dag) had covered the area with tuff. Erosion dug valleys and created an uncountable number of different shaped rocks. The tuff's ability to store water made the valleys much more fertile than the higher surroundings. After the arrival of the first people, they soon started to dig caves into the soft stone. By the time they developed the ability to dig cities into the underground with tunnels of several kilometers. A sophisticated pipe- and tunnel-system cared for fresh air and water, to enable the people to hide from enemies for a long time. In the 5th century hermits started to settle in the valleys and to paint their caves. In the next centuries more and more hermits and monks arrived and a rich cave-architecture with colourfull wallpaintings developed. The most famous are the churches of Goereme and the Peristrema Valley (=Ihlara Valley) between Ihlara and Selime. Today thousands of tourists from all over the world are visiting the area.
