The United States
Atatürk reminds us of one of this century’s greatest human successes, a leadership that gives inspiration to the Turkish people,a foresighted understanding of the modern world and his power and great courage as a military leader. The birth of a free Turkey out of a collapsing empire, the honorable proclamation of a New Turkey’s sovereignty and independence and its preservation since then is the work of Atatürk’s Turkish people. Without doubt, there’s no other example like his deep-rooted and broad-based revolutions in Turkey that demonstrate the confidence of the crowds in him.
(U.S. President, November 10, 1963)
My sorrow is that, there is no more possibility to realize my strong wish to meet this man..
(U.S. President, November 10, 1938)
As a soldier-statesman, he was one of the greatest leaders of our time. He ensured Turkey to have a deserved place among the most advanced countries in the world. Likewise, he has given the Turks, what makes the cornerstone of the greatness of a nation, the sense of self-confidence and endurance.

He was not an ordinary who was after personal benefit and glory, but a hero who tried hard to lay a solid foundation for the generations to come.

Those who want to rebuild peace, well-being and who want mankind to develop not only materially but also morally in the suffering world, must take Atatürk’s encouragement and leadership as an example.
Professor Herbert MELZIG (Historian)
His historical greatness can be measured by his work, the Turkish Republic. This genuine public leader and statesman, who has united his steel-solid resolution and zeal with his far-sighted intelligence and wisdom, instilled a very different soul into even the farthest and remotest villages of the Anatolian mountains.
By maintaining his affection for his people and for mankind, he is performing an exciting scene to the world showing what a genius has created.
He embodies all signs of humanity .
As the old Ottoman Empire disappears like an illusion, the establishment of the national Turkish State is one of the most impressive successes of this era. Mustafa Kemal has created a monumental piece of work. Atatürk’s brilliant success has been an example for all colonies.
He was a great man… a political genius.
He is contemparily one of the world’s greatest personalities.
Le Jour-Echo de Paris
The Turks, who are the most loyal of all nations, will never forget that Atatürk was the savior of their nation.
Noell Roger Journal
In the great man standing in front of me, in the great unknown I have discovered, ability and character exist in such harmony that there could be no doubt about his words.
Today’s Turks have reached the level of a vigorous nation that terrified Europe centuries ago. And tonight, the Turkey standing next to this deceased great master is a strong and robust Turkey.
The man who went beyond centuries!
France, Paris Media
The work that he has achieved through intelligent and peaceful methods will leave traces in the history of mankind.
Albert LEBRUN (French President)
In a country where all existing titles have been removed, this man has earned all titles. In that country, the most honorable name has been given to him.
This could be presented to mankind as an example of tested philosophy. In just ten years, Atatürk has achieved those works that could otherwise take centuries.
Atatürk has realized the miracle of modernizing a society in just a few years.
Atatürk passed away. The Eastern column of the Dome of Peace has fallen. No one can guarantee peace in the universe anymore. As a matter of fact, the European Statesmen did not listen to his warnings and recommendations in 1930 and they led the world into the second great war disaster in 1939.
On the occasion of the signing ceremony of the Ankara Treaty with the new Turkish State when the Assembly cried “He has stabbed us in the back, he has collaborated with wild brigands in the mountains, with Mustafa Kemal followers”, French PM replied as follows: “Had the ones you called wild brigands, the hero Mustafa Kemal and all his soldiers, had they been here, we would have erected their statues one by one. I’m proud to have signed such a heroic treaty”. (1921)
French Prime Minister BRIAND
A revolutionist and a rebel , then a glorious commander, the “Father of Turks” has created the New Turkey, expelled the sultans, has given freedom to women, abolished the fez and made a radical revolution in his country.
It can be said that without him, the Islamic world would have waited another fifty years to find its way.
He is like a high mountain. The ones living at its foot cannot see its greatness. In order to grasp the magnificence of this mountain, one must look at it from a very far distance.
Claude FERRER ( French Writer )
Today, Turkey’s history is more than ever inseparable from Western and European history. Atatürk’s efforts in that direction are not pointless. The friendship between our countries that goes beyond centuries is one of the basic elements of this evolution.
Charles De GAULLE
I want to emphasize a point in order to show a part of Kemal Atatürk’s character. He was relating one of his battles. Suddenly he stopped and said “You see, I’ve won many victories. But even after the greatest ones, each night, I feel a deep sorrow in my heart thinking about all the soldiers who died on the battlefield”. Is it possible not to be amazed at the Chief, who created miracles for his country, to have such a great heart in addition to his courage and intelligence?
George BENNES ( Vu Journal -1938 )
Great personalities of the period have proclaimed in their books and in various conferences that, Turkey would never change and would die without changing. However, it has changed from tip to toe without dying. All beliefs, traditions and methods have changed. They have swept away from the country the last remains of foreign battleships and capitulations. Turkey changed its soul completely and as much as can be imagined.
Raymond CARTIER ( Le Nouvelliste Journal )
The United Kingdom
He’s one of the leading statesmen of the postwar period. He constituted a class on his own and he was unique in all aspects.
The Fortnightly, London
Europe has lost one of the few creative statesmen that appeared after the war.
In our age, no name has created greater respect than that of Atatürk.
Britain salutes the great man that he has known first as a brave and noble enemy, then as a loyal friend.
He was a unique statesman. He achieved great things by means of a free order that democracies haven’t and will not achieve and dictators wouldn’t tolerate. In history, such men gave their names to their era.
He has secured a life full of freedom and trust that no prior generations in Turkey have ever enjoyed. His successes have made Turkey a European state and changed the history of the Near East.
The death of Atatürk, who saved Turkey during the war and resurrected the Turkish people, is not a loss only for his country, but also for Europe. The sincere tears that people from all classes have shed are the true reflection of the importance of this great man, the Father of modern Turkey. (1938)
Winston CHURCHILL (British Prime Minister)
Atatürk was a leader who flew like a Turkish Flag in the souls of the Turkish people.
The Turkish Republic’s President Kemal Atatürk has embodied in his personality estimable qualities like modesty, competency and success, which we are not used to seeing in other leaders

The presence of that young and genius Turkish Chief in Gallipoli at that time, was one of the most bitter blows in history for the Allied Powers.

The power to grasp any event in details and the ability to take immediate action are primary sources of his peerless authority (1923).

Mrs. Sucheta KRIPALANI
The Chairman of the Indian Parliamentary Delegation
Men like Atatürk are not born for a generation, or for a certain era. They are people who, with their leadership, will reign for centuries in the history of nations.
Atatürk was not only a great chief for his heroic people; he has also become mankind’s greatest son.

Nya Dagligt Journal
I salute by bowing with respect before this Greatest Man of our history, the one who created Turkey.
He was not only a soldier, but also a genius that our century will never see again.
The personality of this glorious commander at the head of the state he created with his people’s absolute trust, which he earned throughout his life, is the example of a unique character.
With his superior will, his inexhaustible bravery and unique intuitive knowledge, he has brought his opponents to their knees. His virtue and seriousness, in a three-year period, has made his country win not only a military, but also a full and satisfactory political victory.
F.Perrone Di San Martino (Writer)
