Ktêbhên is the first Kurdish online bookstore in Europe that offer books in both Sorani and Kermanji dialects.

Ktêbhên is the first Kurdish online bookstore in Europe that offers books in different Kurdish dialects.

Ktêbhên is a project by a group of Kurdish journalists, writers, students and their international supporters who intend to focus on the professional review and critique of books in addition to transporting and distributing books to Europe.

Physically, the books are in Berlin, Germany, and can be sent to all Europe and in special situations to other places in the world.

It is especially supported by Xazalnus Publishing House and the Cultural Center in Sulaymaniyah (in KRG) and has taken over the book project fund of “Zozan”, a former Kurdish cultural project in Dortmund, Germany. In Kitêbhên, the main represented publishing houses other than Xazallnus are Avesta, Lis, Nubihar, Kurdish Institute of Paris, Perî, Aram and many others.

Ktêbhên offers a collection of books from different Kurdish publishers in the fields of classical and new literature, children literature, history, philosophy, art, sociology, language books, but also travel guides or coo books. Books are mainly in two dialects of Kurmanji and Sorani, but a number of books will be available in other dialects such as Zazaki. In addition, we intend to compile and provide a selection of books on the Kurdish issue in other languages (for now we have books in English, German and Turkish). The website will be regularly updated with new titles.
Ktêbhên is financially independent and relies on voluntary work. We raised part of the initial capital through a Crowdfunding campaign. If you want to donate or to support the project through book reviews, organizing of events, or others forms of collaborations, you can contact us through this email address: [email protected] or through social media. In addition to continuously publishing book reviews and interviews with authors, translators and editors, Ktêbhên will be active on different social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Clubhouse; different events will take place on the Clubhouse group called Ktêbhên.
