The Legend of Kiz Kulesi, Istanbul
The Maidens Tower is located in Istanbul on the Bosphorus or Bogaz, and is
otherwise known as Kiz Kulesi. The romantic tourist attraction is surrounded by
a number of myths. The most famous one involves a Sultan who goes to
extraordinary lengths to avert a tragic destiny prophesized for his beloved
daughter by an oracle. According to the myth, the oracle tells the Sultan that his
daughter will die on her eighteenth birthday after being bitten by a deadly snake.
To avoid this terrible fate, the sultan has the tower
built in the middle of the Bosphorus, as far as
possible from any snakes. The daughter lives happily
in the tower for years. On her eighteenth birthday, her
delighted father brings out a basket of wonderful fruits
to celebrate. Unfortunately, an asp somehow finds its
way into the basket and bites the young princess as
she reaches for a fruit. Tragically, she dies in her
father’s arms. And so was born the legend of Kiz
Kulesi. Maybe the moral of the story is that we can
unwittingly fulfill a destiny in trying so desperately hard
to prevent it.
How many stars does the current American flag have? Throughout World War II
and until 1958, the American flag had 48 stars, as in the image below. After the
statehood of Alaska and Hawaii, the flag took on 50 stars.
Do you find this type of history
question interesting? This is the kind
of question you can expect to
encounter on the citizenship test for
becoming a naturalized citizen.
Although a person can retain the best

An indelible part of Turkish
history involved the
defense of Gallipoli in
World War One. In marking
the bitter struggle for
control of the Dardanelles,
ceremonies are held to
honor the fallen soldiers of
Turkey, Great Britain,
Australia, New Zealand,
and Canada. The beaches
and fields where terrible
battles were once fought
are now quiet. But the
region is the subject of
debates as to the nature of
the navigational straits...  
in terms of sovereign
rights and the operation of
international law. Click

Law to learn more about

One way to stay isolated
during COVID-19 is to live on
an island... on a lake! See the
article from the
Daily Sabah ,
showing life on Beyşehir Lake
in Isparta.
With the whole world "social
distancing" from one another,
it seems difficult to think of a
time before this terrible
COVID-19 changed life as we
know it. We can't make the
virus go away, but we can
take the clock back to when
every May marked the happy
gathering of people in New
York for the
Annual Turkish
Day Parade. Enjoy the video!
The World That

COVID-19 has impacted so many aspects of our lives and so many
commercial sectors on which we rely. The Turkish Heritage
Organization recently presented the webinar "The Global and
Regional Impacts of COVID-19 on Maritime Affairs,” which featured
Turkish Admiral Cem Gurdeniz and U.S. Admiral Gary Roughead.
