Thus, the originator of the Republic of Turkey, Gazi Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, made a basic, yet extremely point by point explanation: “The general population of Turkey who established the Republic of Turkey is known as the Turkish Nation. ”

It is the best treachery to make past occasions occurring as though the otherworldly creatures were working, at any rate against the battles of our kin who made and experienced these occasions, against the gore and tears of the obliteration, the carnage and tears of the demolition, and even the enduring convictions and convictions they convey in their souls.
