The Sivas massacre, also known as the Madimak massacre, refers to the events of July 2, 1993, at the Hotel Madimak in Sivas, Turkey[1]. The victims, who had gathered in the hotel for the Pir Sultan Abdal festival, were mostly Alevi intellectuals, and 37 people were killed when a mob set fire to the hotel[1][2][3]. Two perpetrators also died during the incident[1]. The case against the remaining five defendants was dropped in March 2012 due to the statute of limitations, but it is still being appealed[1]. The victims were commemorated on the 28th and 30th anniversaries of the massacre in 2021 and 2023, respectively[4][5][6].
