034-Çanakkale dur yolcu
10-DEC-2004

034-Çanakkale dur yolcu

There is a famous poem in memory of the WW I fights, which requests a traveller passing by to stop and think of the heroism (Dur, yolcu .. : Wait, traveller ..). The ferry I am on does not stop, but I often think on the subject of war when I see those lines at this spot. The poem , can be found - in Turkish at the Archive of Turkish Oral History. And what looks like an authoritative English translation is at the anzacsite, that seems to be Australian government run.

Thanks, and the correction has been put in.

But: the government now gets for free what else it might have to haggle for so .... And maybe i am not willing to sell.

Thank you for these beautiful pictures. One note: The correct form is "Yolcu", that is, the letter should be a "c", not "ç" (ch).

Your site is the best site overall for pictures on Turkey, and if I were in the government, I would have Turkey purchase the copyrights to your site!

Regards,

Todd
