#OnthisDay . The Armenian Genocide. It was the Ottoman government's systematic extermination of 1.5 million Armenians, mostly Ottoman citizens within the Ottoman Empire and its successor state, the Republic of Turkey. The starting date is conventionally held to be 24 April 1915, the day that Ottoman authorities rounded up, arrested, and deported 235 to 270 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders from Constantinople to the region of Ankara, the majority of whom were eventually murdered. The genocide was carried out during and after World War I and implemented in two phases: the whole sale killing of the able-bodied male population through massacre and subjection of army conscripts to forced labour, followed by the deportation of women, children, the elderly, and the infirm on death marches leading to the Syrian desert. Driven forward by military escorts, the deportees were deprived of food and water and subjected to periodic robbery, rape, and massacre. Other indigenousand Christian ethnic groups such as the Assyrians and the Ottoman Greeks were similarly targeted for extermination by the Ottoman government in the Assyrian genocide and the Greek genocide. Most Armenian diaspora communities around the world came into being as a direct result of the genocide.

Jika kita membahas Turki, tentu nya tak lepas dari 3 keyakinan berbeda yang tetap damai sampai saat ini. Islam, Kristen dan Yahudi.
Terlepas dari sejarah panjang mereka, pembebasan konstantinopel dari kerajaan romawi dan byzantium hingga di rebut kembali oleh kerajaan Ottoman.

Quick fire round of 'Who can say....' for a Sunday night #constantinople

Я таки дошла до древних городских стен Стамбула, строительство которых велось во времена Византийской империи и которые пережили очень многое. Сейчас же их частично восстановили на средства ЮНЕСКО. Красивое место, но, как и любая заброшка, опасна. За недолгую прогулку я успела чуть ли не обзавестись "новыми друзьями", слава Богу, был день и вокруг гуляли семьи, а полицейских вообще не видать, хотя рядом есть пост, как я поняла 🙈 Так что будьте очень осторожны и одни не гуляйте! ☝🏿☝🏿☝🏿
Добраться до места можно на трамвае линии Т1 до остановки Pazartekke и прошлась немножко от отеля @holidayinn. Посоветовали ещё на метро, линии М1 до станции Topkapı-Ulubatlı, но мне легче на наземной 🙈

The Walls of Constantinople are a series of defensive stone walls that have surrounded and protected the city of Constantinople (today Istanbul) since founding as the new capital of the Roman Empire by Constantine the Great.

When #war broke out in #1914 #Australia had been a federated nation for only 13 years, and its #government was eager to establish a reputation among the nations of the world. When #Britain declared war in August 1914 Australia was automatically placed on the side of the #Commonwealth. In 1915 Australian and New Zealand soldiers formed part of the expedition that set out to capture the Gallipoli #peninsula in order to open the Dardanelles to the #allied navies. The ultimate objective was to capture #Constantinople (now Istanbul), the capital of the #Ottoman #Empire, an ally of Germany.

The Australian and New Zealand forces landed on Gallipoli on 25 April, meeting fierce resistance from the Ottoman Turkish defenders. What had been planned as a bold stroke to knock #Turkey out of the war quickly became a stalemate, and the campaign dragged on for eight months. At the end of 1915 the allied forces were evacuated from the peninsula, with both sides having suffered heavy casualties and endured great hardships. More than 8,000 Australian #soldiers had died in the campaign. Gallipoli had a profound impact on Australians at home, and 25 April soon became the day on which Australians remembered the sacrifice of those who died in the war.

Although the #Gallipoli #campaign failed in its military objectives, the actions of #Australian and New Zealand forces during the campaign left a #powerful legacy. What became known as the “#Anzac #legend” became an #important part of the identity of both nations, shaping the ways in which they viewed both their past and their #future.

The Fourth Crusade was a devastating blow for the Byzantines, but after the recovery of Constantinople in 1261, the Empire continued on for almost 200 years. It was not until 1453 and the Fall of Constantinople that the final nail was put into the coffin of the Roman Empire. The nail was delivered by the Ottoman Turks and their sultan Mehmed II, afterwards known as Mehmed the Conqueror. With the Byzantine Empire dwindled to the city of Constantinople, a few nearby provinces and the Peloponnesian region of Greece, and its population decimated by plague, the city could muster only 7000 defenders. The Ottomans on the other hand had a force of over 50,000, plus the advantage of gunpowder. The siege lasted 53 days, but on 29 May 1453 the city fell. The last emperor, Constantine XI died in the fighting. 1500 years after its foundation, the Roman Empire was finally finished.

[Güzel İstanbulum]
"Akşamın dingin saatleri bunlar
El ayak çekilmiş ortalıktan
Bir ben kalmışım benimle birde senin özlemin
Açar gece yarısı çiçekleri bu sessiz karanlıkta
Kokun yayılır ortalığa çekerim derin bir nefes gibi
Uzanıp yakarım kandillerini içimdeki mabedin
Ve bir dua gibi sayıklayıp adını sabahı karşılarım

Akşamın dingin saatleri bunlar
Yalnızlığı yaşarım hazla
Düşünceler duygulara dönüşür
İçimde bir sabah ruzgari eser
Bir sabah şarkı duyulur bilinmeyen uzaklardan
Bir buhurdan olur gökyüzü dağılır bulutlar nazla

Aksamin dingin saatleri bunlar
Seni sensiz yaşadığım bitmesini hiç istemeden sabahi karşıladığım."
