Turkey Things to Do: 1,137 reviews and 1,882 photos
Unlike during World War I, today Gallipoli is a peaceful place where a message written by the Kemal Atat|rk, the first president of modern Turkey, can bring a tear to the eye.
'Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives...you are now lying of the soil
of a friendly country, therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours...You, the mothers, who sent their sons from far away countries wipe away your tears. Your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well."
