This is a very good article from the Cyprus Mail. Some of the comments at the end of the article are very telling and show the animosty held by the Greek Cypriots.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission is a notable success in South Africa. The combined effects of ordinary people telling stories of human rights abuses and the commission's call for reconciliation and forgiveness began a process of healing for many people.
The Forum for Peace and Reconciliation was established by the Government of Ireland as part of the Northern Ireland peace process and has also been successful.
So why cant Cyprus initiate such a peace process? Surely this must be the way forward?
