In the summer of 1939, a group of scientists, including Alfred Heilbronn and Mehpare Başarman Heilbronn, made a trip to the eastern and southeastern Anatolian regions. The aim of the botanists was to observe and record the diversity of flora in this region. The trip, which began on August 7 from Elazığ to Harput, lasted until September 3 and included stops in the Eupharetes region, where the construction of various dams and hydroelectric power plants was planned in the 20th century. Nevşünema focuses on their botanical excursion by tracing the photographic and written travel diaries left behind.
