Twitter Thread: Another church, another sad story from Turkey


Last month, the Turkish president Erdogan has converted two churches in Istanbul, Hagia Sophia and Chora church, to working mosques. Now Turkish officials have demolished an ancient Greek Orthodox church in the country’s northwestern province of Bursa, after the structure was abandoned for years by a state institution that manages the estates and restorations. I find this Twitter thread by Tugba Tanyeri-Erdemir explains the tragedy behind the demolishing.
