Turkey's neutrality helped many jews to save their lives. They opened institutes, choirs in turkey and their science people worked alongside ours

During the war, the bread distributed was limited and people had to wait in lines with papers in Turkey. It is said a young man in the line told the Pasha, "my Pasha, you have left us without breads!" angrily, So Ismet Pasha replied him "Yes, I left you without breads, but not without fathers."
The conditions were bad, but anything was way better than going to war. I salute you my Pasha!

Wasn't Turkey geographically very important to the Germans? As the Turkish border was just 300km away from Baku, where the main supply of Soviet oil came from. Striking Baku quickly through Turkey would have made a big difference in Soviet and German war effort if the Turks joined the Axis side.

Long live Ismet Pasha, you saved our country from any unnecessary bloodshed. One of my grandgrandfather were fought at Yemen under Ottoman banner, when our army lost the battle against the enemy, he was taken as prisoner of war and after 15 year of suffering he turned his country. One of my grandgrandfather lost his life at the defence of Palestine, also he was fought at battle of Gallipoli and Megiddo. My grandfather he was born and raised without father and he was fought many battles under your command. We are the sons of them, who fought against enemy for defence of motherland, we fought many, lost many lives, we suffered, but never turned ourselves back. From my perspective, neutrality policy saved millions life. Thats why, as a Turk, always grateful to ones who fought for independence like you.

Turkey played the game well. They profited enormously from the neutrality and their patience.
