Our Students are in Gallipoli on the 100. Anniversary of Çanakkale Victory
Mar 18, 2015

Our students visited on the 100. Anniversary of Çanakkale Victory the ground on which the historical war was made. Our students who visited the places where Çanakkale Land and Sea Battles were fought had both mournful and proud moments.

“Çanakkale on its 100. Year” trip was organized by İTÜ Press Club as part of the club’s 10. Establishment Anniversary activities. 320 students joined the trip actualized by İTÜ Rectorate’s support.

The trip started early in the morning with rendezvous with the guides in Eceabat and the visit to Kilitbahir Castle. Then, Kilitbahir bastions and Corporal Seyit Memorial were visited. After the Martyrs’ Memorial and Respect to Mehmetçik Monument, a short walk to the Morto Bay was made. The photograph for which 320 students posed during the Martyrs’ Monument visit is one of the most meaningful images of the trip. Our students refreshed their knowledge and relived history with the help of the guides who accompanied them during the whole trip; they also visited Ertuğrul Bay, Seddülbahir Castle, 57. Regiment War Cemetery, Arıburnu, Conkbayırı and Kabatepe Publicity Center. The trip’s last stop was Atatürk House in Bigalı Village.
