10 November Ataturk Memorial Day Quotes and Messages…
Ataturk Memorial Day. Turkey is commemorating Great Leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the Founder of Republic of Turkey, who passed away 85 years ago. Today commemoration ceremonies are taking place throughout Turkey and in Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. .

We commemorate Gazi Mustafa Kemal, the Founder of the Republic of Turkey who took the hand of a nation suffering in poverty and deprivation,  he made and presented Republic, the most precious gift, to the country, on the 85th anniversary of his death.

Gazi Mustafa Kemal, who passed away on November 10, 1938 at five past nine o’clock, continues to live and be kept alive spiritually through the poems, anthems, flags, national days, revolutions and at the very heart of the Republic.

Atatürk died at 9:05 on November 10, 1938 — and every year, all of Turkey observes a moment of silence at 9:05 on that day to honor the man regarded as the greatest Turk.

The Dolmabahçe palace is closed for general visits on Nov. 10, but only room number 71 – where Atatürk died – can be seen by visitors on the day.

The palace was visited by 80,000 local and foreign visitors on Nov. 10 of last year, and this year the number is expected to exceed 100,000.

Dolmabahçe Palace has a great importance as it is the place where Atatürk made his first speech in Istanbul, where he died and where his funeral was held.

The Turkish leader died at the age of 57 from health problems at Dolmabahçe Palace. Every year on this date, flags fly at half-mast.

All around the country, people stop in the streets or stand silently to observe a minute’s silence at their workplaces to remember the founder of modern Turkey.

May he rest in peace…

He was one of the builders of the modern age in the orient. I continue to be among his greatest admirers.

In order to show a part of Kemal Atatürk’s character, I want to make a point. He was relating one of his wars. Suddenly he stopped: you see, he said: I’ve won many victories. But even after the greatest of them each night, I feel a deep sorrow inside of me by thinking about all the soldiers who died in the battlefield. Could one be amazed about the chief who has created miracles to his country, other then his courage and intelligence, to have such a great heart?

George BENNES – Vu Journal (1938)

I am the child of a generation that knows closely Turkish-German friendship. At an early age I saw a man’s heroism’s, the services he carried out and the self-sacrifices he undertook for his country. This man was Mustafa Kemal. Today I comprehend even better that this person was a great statesman. He was great, because he used all his courage for his nation, his country to save his homeland at an unlucky moment. He was great, because he directed his nation towards the absolute necessity of adjusting them to the necessities of history. He was great, because he always knew how to defend suitable limits and he did not go beyond the limits that would put his work into danger. Courageousness and his own courageousness was intelligent enough as well to be able to draw the limits.

Kurt G. Kiesinger, Prime Minister of the Federal Republic of Germany
