Kiev Funicular

The Kiev Funicular serves the city of Kiev. It connects the historic Uppertown, and the lower commercial neighborhood of Podil through the steep Volodymyrska Hill. Last year, I visited the city and took these photographs.

What is interesting for me was high number of women workers as operators.

Iron Door Decorations

Iron door decorations. They’re always interesting for me. Especially in old Gaziantep, I have seen quite different shapes. Recently, I talked with an old iron craftsman, he said that “when I was a young apprentice, each smithery had its own figure but after machines got into the job, everyone started to produce similar things”.

“Arbeit Macht Frei”

In March 1933 a regional SA regiment established a #concentration #camp in a disused factory building in the centre of Oranienburg. In the three months after the National Socialists seized power, Oranienburg concentration camp took on a key role in the persecution of the opposition in Berlin – the capital city of the ‘Reich’. Around 3000 people were held in the camp until its closure in 1934 and at least 16 prisoners were murdered by the guards. (Source: http://www.stiftung-bg.de/gums/en/)

And new coffee brands, which target Syrian customers, produced in Gaziantep, started to appear on the shelves. ———— Suriyeli mülteciler Türkiye’ye gelirken kahve kültürlerini de getirdiler.
