Contents / Celebrating the 10th year

The 10th anniversary of the young Republic of Turkey was
celebrated with great rejoicing all over the country.

It was 1933. Exactly ten years had passed since the proclamation of the Republic on 29 October 1923. The young Republic was preparing to celebrate its 10th birthday. So much had happened in the intervening ten years. The past had cast a long shadow over everything and it was high time for some much-needed light: reforms, economic investments, a new emphasis on culture, education and art.
Creating a miracle out of ruin, the Turkish people had made serious progress by the tenth anniversary of the Republic which they had founded by relying on their national sovereignty without the protection of any other state. Therefore this anniversary deserved to be celebrated. To coordinate the festivities, the government got down to work and on 11 June 1933 issued Law no. 2305 governing ‘the Celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Proclamation of the Republic’. This was quickly followed by three more laws deemed necessary as appendices to the first.
