obrigada Armando, Ottoman shelter


-
What are some mind-blowing facts about the Ottoman Empire?

Here's a fun fact for you : 
In 1845, when the potatoe famine struck Ireland the Ottomans came to the aid of the Irish, better than the British.

In 1845, Ottoman Sultan Abdülmecid declared his intention to send £10,000 to victims of the Irish potato famine, but Queen Victoria requested that the Sultan send only £1,000, because she herself had sent only £2,000. The Sultan sent £1,000 along with five ships full of food. The British administration allegedly attempted to block the ships, but the food arrived secretly at Drogheda harbour and was left there by Ottoman sailors.

no quora.

também sobre este assunto, mais ou menos:
The Ottoman Empire: A shelter for all kinds of refugees. quando fui a primeira vez era para dar um salto a Polonezköy, mas depois seria demasiado tempo e há tanta outra coisa para ver.

Enfim, desde que decobri que aquele ponto particular do planeta é um centro nevrálgico da história humana, o fascínio nunca mais teve fim. até pelo contrário.
