Forty-two years after the coup and the invasion of 1974, the political powers of Cyprus, from both sides, continue to feed the nationalisms that led to its division. Forcing a monolithic historical narrative of hate, attempted and succeeded to maintain the division of the communities, through education, army, memorials of the missing persons, celebrations of national anniversaries.
