19th of May Commemoration of Atatürk, Youth and Sports Day

Mustafa Kemal Atatürk lands at Samsun on the Anatolian Black Sea coast, initiating what is later termed the Turkish War of Independence.

19th May 1919, this date is important date for Turkey. This time many years ago Ataturk, who is the leader of Turkey, started national combat in Samsun/Turkey. Lots of Turkish people fighted in Turkish war of Independence without technology in difficult situations. Lots of Turkish soldiers died in this war. At the end of this war we won secure and economic independence. After this war, Turkey Republic was made and secularizm was established.

Ataturk dedicated May 19, to the country's youth and since then, it has been celebrated as "Youth and Sports Day". Ataturk called young people"The student, at whatever age, should be looked at from the point of view of the adults of the future and they should be treated as such."

We have lots of responsibilities for Turkey's future. Young people have to claim to be owner of Turkey's culture and values.
