In March 1994 the Cyprus Veterans’ association World War II submitted a request to Pafos Municipality with regard to the construction of a memorial dedicated to all those who died during World War II.

In October 1994 the Veterans’ association established and announced the 11th of November as the day for commemoration of the dead of both World Wars. The request for the memorial was granted a year later by the Municipality authorities and the unveiling took place on June 15th 1997.
