Contemporary Societal Issues: Primary Sources - Turkey

Primary Sources

Primary sources are firsthand accounts of an event, written by someone who experienced or witnessed the event in question. They are often diaries, letters, memoirs, journals, speeches, manuscripts, interviews and other such unpublished works. They may also be newspaper or magazine articles (as long as they are written soon after the fact and not as historical accounts), photographs, audio or video recordings, statistics, research reports in the natural or social sciences, and original literary or theatrical works.
