A society needs to know its past and the present well before setting out to explore the future. In this regard, all these are contributions provided for our own memory and history. In this aspect, I consider this exhibition very significant. I would like to extend my gratitude and congratulations mainly to the Founding Rector Dr. Suat Günsel and everyone for their contributions to the exhibition” said she.
