“Free peoples have a moral obligation to fight with all their power against any force that threatens their freedom and represses their land.” - Herodotus.
The proposal entitled “Temple for the Republic” is based on three conceptual levels.
The first level represents the Monument as a Memory. The memory of the events leading up to the overthrow of the Republic of Cyprus by the Coup of Hunta against the legitimate government, and the memories of those who sacrificed their lives defending the ideals of Freedom and Democracy.
