Coffee with Ataturk


Mustafa Kemal, the founder of the Modern Turkish Republic, died on 10 November 1938, at the age of 57. Upon the anniversary of his death, at the exact time of his death, 9:05 in the morning, all across the country people pay their respects to the national leader,  You can hear ships blowing horns in the harbor and people pause for a moment to remember the man they owe a great deal.
