1915 Trench and Red Crescent Hospital Reliving Areas

During the Dardanelles Wars, the mobile hospitals established by the Red Crescent Society played an important role in the region, as well as the hospitals affiliated to the 5th Army Range Organization. It is known that the soldiers injured at the front started to treat their wounds with the materials in the "War Package", which was sewn into their bags. The soldiers, who were carried to their "wounded nests" behind by the medics, were then moved to the "bandage areas" where simple operations could be carried out, and finally to the hospitals behind the front. The revitalization area designed in Alçıtepe offers its visitors the opportunity to experience all the details of a hospital behind the facade.

While visiting the hospital animation, visitors also witness an incident that was considered a war crime in violent clashes in 1915. What happened in a bandaging place bombed by enemy planes takes the visitors to those moments with sound installations in the area.

Among the visiting points, starting from the machine gun trench that protects the hospitals from enemy aircraft, there are teahouse, operating room, warehouse, recording, and first response tents, drying machines and areas called canopy where our soldiers who lost their lives are kept. The infirmary tent, the station where the water dispenser is located and the horse-drawn ambulance is complementary elements of the animation. You should definitely visit this emotionally charged area to see an original field stretcher with a sunshade, on which a soldier injured in the battles of 1915 was carried.
