The Çanakkale Sehitleri Aniti (or Çannakale Martyrs Memorial) is the main Turkish memorial at Gallipoli where the Turkish commemoration of the campaign takes place every 18 March. The statue is based on a photograph of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, then Lieutenant-Colonel Mustafa Kemal, looking out over the battlefield from a trench at Anzac in 1915.
