Ataturk Worksheet

This worksheet asks children to look at the story of Gallipoli from the other side for just one moment, by reading the words of General Musafa Kumal (later Ataturk): “Those heroes who shed their blood and lost their lives, you are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side 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 become our sons as well.”
