For Ankara attacks survivor, the nightmare isn't over

Demonstrators hold pictures of victims and placards reading 'unforgettable, unforgiven' on October 13, 2015 in Istanbul, during a rally against the deadly bomb attack on October 10 in AnkaraBahadir Demircan, 37, a survivor of the double suicide bombing in Ankara, finds it hard to express the horror he experienced and struggles to imagine how he can carry on. “We saw things that no one would ever want to see in their lives,” said brown-haired Demircan, visibly exhausted and deeply saddened by the terrible memory of Saturday’s bombings. Since being caught up in the attack on a peace rally in the Turkish capital that killed 97, Demircan has not returned to his job in advertising, preferring instead to stay at the morgue, helping identify bodies and contacting relatives.
