Istanbul, TURKEY

The Kurdish mothers of disappeared persons gather in silence every Saturday morning in Istanbul to pray for their lost sons and daughters. Since 1984, Kurdish separatists have been fighting the Turkish Army in southeastern Turkey, in an area which makes up a large part of Kurdistan, the traditional home of the Kurdish people. Since 1987, the entire region has been under martial law. More than 35,000 people have been killed, more than 3,000 Kurdish villages destroyed by Turkish troops, and some 3 million Kurdish civilians forced to flee their homes.
