The commemorative concert was held at Cemal Resit Rey Concert Hall, Harbiye, Şişli, Istanbul on May 17, 2019 in remembrance of the fallen high school students, teachers and all martyrs of our nation especially between the years 1912 -1923.

On account of the fact that most of the senior class students of Kabatas Erkek (founded in 1908), Istanbul Erkek (founded in 1910) and Vefa High Schools(founded in 1872) participated in the battles between 1912 - 1923, the 20-member music band is comprised of the students and teachers from the mentioned high schools.

SHORT MOVIE: “In the flower of their youth” movie regarding the fallen students & teachers of the Turkish schools during the wars will be screened with English subtitles. (10 min).

SONGS:

1. Heal the world: The song of Michael Jackson was sung in memory of the fallen soldiers & people of all countries in World War I.

2. Hey onbeşli:  The song mentions the young men enlisted to army and sent to the battlefronts.

3. Annem beni yetiştirdi  (My mother raised me): This march was being sung by the high school students in the course of the offensive against Anzac trenches on May 19, 1919.

After her death, a video on Yalçın's Facebook page, showing her singing the Turkish folk song "Mağusa Limanı" (Famagusta Port), also went viral in social media circles. As Mağusa Limanı song is her favourite one, it has been sung in remembrance of the martyred teachers of Turkish nation since then.
