Address by the President of the Republic, Mr Nicos Anastasiades, at the unveiling of an honorary plaque for Cypriots who helped Jewish refugees, July 7, 2014
It is with profound emotion and great respect that we are here today for the unveiling of a commemorative plaque which will serve as a reminder, for present and future generations, of the warm relations developed during difficult and tragic times between the Cypriot and Jewish people.

Jews deported to Cyprus were housed in military camps in the Karaolos area near the town of Famagusta, in military camps in Dekeleia and here, in Xylotympou. For the Jewish people, the deportation period to our then-colonized island, was the last stage in their long journey to the land of Israel.
