The beaches of Gallipolli, more than any other place, have become an enduring symbol of nationhood for New Zealanders who make pilgrimages to Gallipolli to remember. On this peaceful hillside closer to home is a memorial to commemorate Mustafa Kemal Ataturk (1880-1938) defender of Gallipolli and first president of modern Turkey. Beneath the memorial is a container of soil from Anzac Cove, where hundreds of our people lost their lives. This site, with its past and panoramic and wild ocean views, is an ideal place to thoughtfully linger.
