The Last Days of Hasankeyf

Thomas Büsch
Hasankeyf, located in the Turkish border area with Iran, Iraq and Syria, is at least 12,000 years old and thus one of the oldest settlements of mankind. Turkey is building a gigantic dam here, the place will sink into the associated reservoir. And below the reservoir, the wetlands of the Tigris will dry up.
