A Young Turk from Lehistan: Seyfeddin Thadée Gasztowtt (1881 – 1936) and Poland’s Independence in the post-1908 Young Turk Revolution Istanbul

7 January 2022 | Author: Paulina D. Dominik

For over a century the Ottoman Empire and subsequently the Republic of Turkey played an important role in the geopolitical imagination of Polish independence activists and statesmen.
