for the record, it was the 50th anniversary of Adnan Menderes’ death at the hands of junta…..

A fact, that is not forgotten by large sectors of society…


Adnan Menderes (Turkish: [ad?nan mende??es]; 1899?1961) was the first democratically elected Turkish Prime Minister between 1950?1960. He was one of the founders of the Democratic Party (DP) in 1946, the fourth legal opposition party of Turkey. He was hanged by the military junta after the 1960 coup d’état, along with two other cabinet members, Fatin Rüştü Zorlu and Hasan Polatkan. He was the last Turkish political leader to be executed after a military coup and is also one of the three political leaders of the Turkish Republic (along with Atatürk and Turgut Özal) to have a mausoleum built in his honour.
