Echoes from the Deep: The Wrecks of the Dardanelles Campaign by Savaş Karakaş

Yunus Emre Institute in London is proud to host a talk titled ‘Echoes from the Deep: The Wrecks of the Dardanelles Campaign’ by Savaş Karakaş on the 19th of March at 8 pm. The event will start with a talk and followed by a book signing with the authors.

“We are looking for all the battleships and supply vessels that were on active service in the Dardanelles in 1915 and that were later left, forgotten in the depths of the sea…” These are the words of Savaş Karakaş, an award-winning Turkish documentary filmmaker and experienced diver, who is exploring the underwater traces of the Gallipoli Campaign. Savaş Karakaş has produced several documentaries on the subject so far, including “Gallipoli: History in the Depths”, which showed the first ever underwater shootings of sunken warships of Gallipoli, and “Gallipoli: War Beneath the Waves”, which documented the lost submarines of the Gallipoli Campaign. “Echoes from the Deep” is his final tribute to the Gallipoli Campaign on the occasion of its Centenary.
