The Kurdish people are an ethnic Group inhabiting an area across parts of Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria.
According to various estimates around 30 Million Kurds live worldwide, a majority of them in Turkey. Recent emigration took over a Million to Western countries. Around 700,000 of them live in Germany.
Mass displacement in southeast Turkey has left civilians without homes, jobs, education or basic necessities. A human rights group has called for Ankara to lift curfews, allow residents to return and grant compensation.
