“It was 1974, I was sitting down with one of my friends, and a gentleman was busy reading here. On the cover of his book there was a photo of a man, and he was reading loud. I went to him and asked him who the man was on the cover of his book, he told me that it was Albert Louis Gabriel, a French historian. In 1930, the governor of Diyar Bakir decided to take down some of the cities’ historic towers, and once Gabriel is aware of this, he notifies other writers in Turkey. Thanks to Gabriel, the process of destroying the towers was stopped. I was very happy to hear this story, and so I decided to hang some of his photos in my office.”
