Turkish monuments wheeled out of town before flood ‘washes history away’

The Artuklu Hamam, a 540-year-old bathhouse, is removed before the construction of a new dam

Turkey has started moving historic buildings out of the southeastern town of Hasankeyf before a dam is completed that will leave the area 60 metres under water.

Shamefully Kurds are allowing this to take place

The 540-year-old Artuklu Hamam, a traditional Turkish bathhouse, is the latest building to be moved, on wheels and fully intact, to a new site two miles away. Draped in Turkish flags and guarded by heavily armed special forces soldiers, it joins the 15th century Zeynel Bey tomb, which was moved in May last year, in New Hasankeyf.

In all, six monuments will be moved to the new site before the waters of the Tigris submerge what is left of the old town. Hasankeyf’s 3,000 residents are also being moved to new apartment blocks.
