Aktuelles Forschungsprojekt:

The Red Crescent Association was established shortly after the foundation of Red Cross in 1864 and developed as a distinct independent organization offering medical help, material and field hospitals for soldiers during wars. Its mission which also included serving war prisoners, refugees, civilians, and other non-combatants was expanded in the following years to cover peace time as well to protect human life and health and alleviate human sufferings such as in cases of natural calamities. Preliminary duties of Red Crescent as popularly known then, were similar with those of the Red Cross: providing medical care, nursing, training volunteers for health services during warfare. Red Crescent which displayed its major activities during the Ottoman- Russian War of 1877–78, Tripolitanian War of 1911, Balkan Wars, the First World War and Turkish Independence War.
It is clear that with this shortly mentioned historical past and some qualifications summarized, the Turkish Red Crescent Association was extremely important for historical researches for a deepen and broaden understanding of humanitarian aspect of contemporary world history. The great variety of historical sources on the Turkish Red Crescent might easily help for developing new analytical tools for understanding the realities especially in Ottoman and neighbor territories. It might also make a good contribution to a better understanding of social structure of 19th and 20th century.
