The commemorative event in memory of the fallen soldiers & people of Czechoslovakia and Turkey in World War I was held at our school with the participation of Consul-General of Czechia in Istanbul Petr Mares.

The event started with a moment of silence in remembrance of the fallen soldiers of Turkey and Czechoslovakia in World War I. Afterwards, Czech Consul-General delivered a speech to our students regarding the relations between Czechia and Turkey. The students learned more about the education opportunities in Czechia and the other issues by asking some questions to high-ranking diplomat.

Following the speech, “In the flower of its youth” movie about the fallen students & teachers of the Turkish schools during the wars was screened with English subtitles. Then the music teacher of our school Ali Salih Köse and the students Selin Ünal, Deniz Chousein and Nil Arıca performed five songs as follows;

4. “Ach synku synku” song was sung in memory of Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk ,the founder and first president of Czechoslovak Republic, and soldiers & people of  Czechoslovakia who lost their lives in World War I.

The Czech Consul-General expressed his appreciation to the music band of our school by saying: “I have never imagined that I could listen Ach synku synku song sung by Turkish students in Turkey. You performed the song perfectly…”

On the occasion of the event, tree donation made in memory of the fallen soldiers of Czechoslovakia & Turkey was presented to Consul-General of Czechia in Istanbul Petr Mares.

The heroic soldiers of Czechoslovakia & Turkey who sacrificed their lives for their countries will always be remembered with respect.

CZECHOSLOVAKIA

Czechoslovakia was a sovereign state in Central Europe that existed from October 1918, when it declared its independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, until its peaceful dissolution into the Czech Republic and Slovakia on 1 January 1993.

The area was long a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until the empire collapsed at the end of World War I. The new state was founded by Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk (1850–1937), who served as its first president from 14 November 1918 to 14 December 1935.

During World War I small numbers of Czechs, the Czechoslovak Legions, fought with the Allies in France and Italy, while large numbers deserted to Russia in exchange for its support for the independence of Czechoslovakia from the Austrian Empire. With the outbreak of World War I, Masaryk began working for Czech independence in a union with Slovakia. With Edvard Beneš and Milan Rastislav Štefánik, Masaryk visited several Western countries and won support from influential publicists.

Czechoslovakia was founded in October 1918, as one of the successor states of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the end of World War I and as part of the Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye. It consisted of the present day territories of Bohemia, Moravia, Slovakia and Carpathian Ruthenia. Its territory included some of the most industrialized regions of the former Austria-Hungary.

Czechoslovak independence was declared on Wenceslas Square on October 28, 1918, beginning a new era for two nations which had previously been part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. 

WORLD WAR I (1914 – 1918)

The First World War was fought on many fronts around the world from the battlefields of Europe to the far-flung colonies in the Pacific and Africa. While it is most famous for the trench combat stalemate that existed on Europe's Western Front, in other theatres of combat the fighting was mobile and often involved set-piece battles and cavalry charges. The Eastern Front often took thousands of casualties a day during the big offensive pushes but it was the West that saw the most concentrated slaughter.

The total number of military and civilian casualties in World War I were about 40 million: estimates range from 15 to 19 million deaths and about 23 million wounded military personnel, ranking it among the deadliest conflicts in human history.

NOTE: As the same songs performed at Charles University on January 16, 2019 in memory of the fallen soldiers& people of both nations were sung at the aforementioned event, only the video clip of 'Ach synku synku' song is available on the news. You may watch the other songs by clicking on the news titled “Commemoration event for the fallen soldiers of Czechoslovakia & Turkey in World War I”
