WHAT THEY SAY FOR ATATÜRK!

Romania

Atatürk will take his place in history as an ingenious organizer, a miracle in administration and the saver of his country.

Independance Romaine Newspaper, Bucharest, 12th November 1938

Atatürk used to understand the real needs of the nation. He had accepted the criteria of a regional development policy instead of the former Sultan’s policy of exterior expansion.

He constructed the national life of his country on a strong basis by evaluating his organization with a strong feedback and new reforms. These feats, concentrated to the depths of the spirit of the nation, can only be compared with the expansion plans of Fatih

Sultan Mehmet. Atatürk, as mentioned in the name itself, has literally been the father of the Turks. A rather though father, yet the father who has arranged today's well-being.

His deeds can be a subject of pleasure and well-being for all the world.

Curentil Newspaper, Bucharest, 12th November 1938

We share the sorrow of the Turkish Nation with all our heart for the death of their Great Chief and leader. Atatürk is one of the greatest leaders of the world who has saved and elevated his nation from disaster with his determination.

Independance Romaine Newspaper

This reformer who rose over ordinary humans was most humane with his character and life-style. Originally, these are the reasons of the attraction to his personality and his authority, which he has managed to keep till the end of his life.

Vittorul Newspaper, Marcel Sauvage

Atatürk has opened a new era in the world. I can never forget how he gave a lesson to the west by giving the rights of the women and expressing the importance of mothers in his country.
