Victory Day

Today is the 30th of August, which is Victory Day in Turkey.

The day commemorates Turkey’s victory in the Battle of Dumlupinar in 1922, which paved the way for Turkey’s independence in 1923.

The sacrifices made not only on Victory Day but also throughout Turkey’s War of Independence from 1919 to 1923 are the reason why Turkey exists today.

Thank you to all those who sacrificed and continue to sacrifice themselves to make Turkey possible.
