Greek daily gives away copies of Atatürk book
Hürriyet photoGreek daily TeNea distributed copies of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk's famous 1927 speech “Nutuk” under a new campaign devoted to speeches that changed the world, daily Milliyet reported.
The first speech released as part of the campaign was that of the founder of modern Turkey. The published book defined Atatürk as a man “who made changes in Turkey that were unseen before his time.”
Referring to him as Kemal, the newspaper introduced Atatürk's ambitions as "reconstruction of the country under a national solidarity, separation of religion from the political will, and a conscious choice of leaning towards Europe instead of the Middle East."
Speeches by John F. Kennedy, Nelson Mandela, Malcolm X and Fidel Castro will also be distributed by the daily in the upcoming days.
