Abstract

The consequences of the Turkish-Russian war of 1877-1878 and the agonising cries of Turks who migrated from the Balkans with hundreds of thousands and were killed in mass were still living as carili in memory when Atatürk was brought up. Together with these depressions, the spark of superior features, Pleven, and later the Turkish-Greek War of 1897, gave strength and hope as signs of life, signs that everything was not yet finished.
