A memory

Today I visited a house that Mustafa Kemal Ataturk (the founder of modern Turkey in 1923) stayed at in Antalya in 1930. Very pleasant little museum but there was one small piece that I enjoyed reading more than anything else. It is called ‘A memory’ and for me captured much of what Ataturk was likely experiencing as he endeavoured to form a new and modern nation state.
