tragic death in the Gallipoli War at Gallipoli Front, (Çanakkale -
Turkey) on August 10, 1915 reverberated in
scientific circles with comments "too valuable to die". Afterwards,
governments decided to keep away their scientists away from war fronts.
After Turkish Independence War (1919 - 1923), resulting Lausanne Treaty (1924)
and establishment of peace and friendship among the same nations, all
heroes who fell at Gallipoli War were warmly greeted by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk,
as the president of Turkey, in 1934, with the following words:
"Those heroes from faraway lands
who shed their blood on the soil of Gallipoli: Here you are in the soil of a friendly country.
Rest in peace. You are side by side
and lying together with Turkish soldiers... You, the mothers who sent their sons to war from far away countries... Wipe away your tears.
Your sons are lying on our bosom. They are at peace
and they will rest in peace. After having lost their lives on this land,
they have become our sons now...", (M.K. Atatürk, 1934)
At the 90th anniversary of his death, we aim to remember
Dr. Moseley's contribution to science as well as to evaluate the role of
science and scientist at war and peace, which may help us to understand
the present day unrest in the world.
