Tasoula Hadjitofi


Mrs. Hadjitofi, a refugee of the 1974 Turkish Invasion of Cyprus, served as Honorary Consul in The Netherlands where she sought justice for the looting of Cyprus’s cultural heritage through repatriation of its stolen religious artifacts. Her work with Archbishop Chrysostomos I culminated in her orchestrating the Munich Operation, which led to the arrest of art trafficker Aydin Dikmen and the recovery of over $60 million of stolen antiquities from Cyprus and around the world. Mrs. Hadjitofi’s non-governmental organization “Walk of Truth,” continues to engage citizens and leaders of the world regarding the importance of protecting our shared cultural heritage and the recognition that the responsibility of its survival lies with each of us.
