Humans of Kurdistan - North 07

August 9, 2020

“I am 88 years’ old and originally from Dersim. I used to work in Sharnakh 56 years ago. I have kept every gift I have received since then. When I moved to Amed, I dedicated a whole room in my house for those gifts. This small room holds the memories of 56 years. I have received some of the gifts from the cities in the north and other parts of Turkey. Some of them were gifted by my friends and others were hand-made. There are more than 1000-1500 pieces here. Some are very valuable and others are cheap. Some are antiques and some are new. I want my wife and kids to preserve these. I do not want to make any changes here and I want everything to stay where it is now. So that whoever comes across this place will immediately say that is Khala Kadthim’s house”.
