WHAT THEY SAY FOR ATATÜRK!

Syria

He did not ask for a throne from his people after he managed to save his country from almost certain disaster. He was a great human being, a genius, a brave soldier and a distinguished statesman. He devoted his life to the happiness of his nation and passed away too young.

Elifba Newspaper, Damascus, 1939

Syrians share the great sorrow the Turkish Nation feels because of the death of Atatürk, the founder of Turkey and the creator of Turkish power and greatness. While our sister nation is in pain, the only thing we can do is to follow this great man’s path.

Elkabes Newspaper, Damascus, 1938

The deeds of Atatürk are wonderful miracles. The reforms he has made in a couple of years in his country would normally take a couple of centuries.

El Tekaddum Newspaper

Atatürk is a miracle of mankind for all the times in history.
