This paper, by drawing on the contents of a museum and schoolbook, will show how the image of the home can be used to focus the commemoration of conflict on Cyprus. This is due to its inherent familiarity, its connection to our identities, and its ability to evoke feelings of nostalgia and grief, hope and pain. It is the symbolic accessibility of the home which makes it powerful, as given so many have been lost through conflict, it is the ideal trope to build around because it is both personal and collective, and can take on many different meanings.
