Abstract

The activities of anti-Turkish political circles increased with the end of First World War. The Ottoman Empire, who had got out of the battle as both materially and morally damaged, didn't have the financial support to struggle with these political circles. This situation activated Turkish citizens living in Switzerland and forced them to defend the justified case of Turkish people with his scarce resources. The social and economic conditions of Turkish people living in Switzerland during the period of armistice, the activities of Lausanne Turc Yourdou to defend the rights of Ottoman Empire, will also be emphasized in this article.
